Katie Holmes’ Broadway Play “Dead Accounts” Closes Early


Katie Holmes’ Broadway play “Dead Accounts” alongside Norbert Leo Butz will close on January 6, 2013, seven weeks ahead of schedule.

“Dead Accounts” producer Jeffrey Finn said in a statement: “I am extremely proud of this production and the cast. Theresa Rebeck and Jack O’Brien have created an inspiring and hilarious new play and we are all sad to see Dead Accounts end on Broadway. I look forward to working with this remarkably talented cast and creative team again very soon.”

The 34-year-old Holmes received warm reviews for her portrayal of an Ohio woman whose secretive brother (Butz) returns home after a long absence.

“Dead Accounts” began previews on November 5 and opened November 29 at the Music Box Theatre in New York City. It was originally scheduled to end Feb. 24, 2013, but instead will be closing a few weeks earlier.

Katie Holmes, who made her Broadway debut in the 2008 revival of Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons,” shared her love for theater in the December issue of Vogue, saying: “It’s exciting because there’s no close-up, so a person has to use every inch of themselves. So you’re never done — and who wants to be done? It’s just another opportunity to keep growing.”
