Katie Holmes' Broadway show 'Dead Accounts' will close early
Katie Holmes' return to Broadway is being cut short.
It was announced on Thursday, December 27, that "Dead Accounts" will close on January 6 after 27 previews and 44 performances, according to The Associated Press.
The play, written by playwright and "Smash" creator Theresa Rebeck, opened on November 29. The show also starred Norbert Leo Butz and opened at the Music Box Theater with poor reviews.
"I am extremely proud of this production and the cast," Jeffrey Finn, one of the show's producers, said in a statement to Playbill.com. "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."
Other cast members in the play include Judy Greer, Josh Hamilton and two-time Tony Award nominee Jayne Houdyshell.
Holmes' character is a Cincinnati woman who is trying to piece her life back together. Butz plays her brother, Jack, who returns home unexpectedly, without his wife and with a whole lot of money, and causes some family drama. Hamilton's character, is his childhood friend.
The actress last starred in a Broadway production four years ago - between October 2008 and January 2009, she played Ann in a revival of Arthur Miller's "All My Sons" alongside Dianne Wiest and John Lithgow. The play marked her Broadway debut.
In a recent interview on "Late Show with David Letterman," Holmes admitted that she had a moment during a performance where she temporarily forgot her lines.
