Katie Holmes set to return to Broadway with 'Dead Accounts'
Katie Holmes is making her return to the Broadway stage.
Holmes, who has has been residing in New York City since her high-profile split from husband Tom Cruise, is set to appear on Broadway in the fall with family comedy "Dead Accounts" by Theresa Rebeck, according to the New York Times. The 33-year-old actress will play Lorna, a woman who lives in Cincinnati while trying to piece her life back together.
"I am thrilled to be coming back to the Broadway community and honored to be a part of this team," Holmes said in a statement obtained by the Times.
The five-character play is set to be directed by Tony Award winner Jack O'Brien, who has directed popular Broadway plays such as "Hairspray" and "The Coast of Utopia."
The starlet made her Broadway debut in 2008 when she appeared in a revival of Arthur Miller's "All My Sons" alongside Dianne Wiest and John Lithgow.
Holmes filed for divorce from husband Cruise on June 28, seeking sole custody of their 6-year-old daughter Suri. The filing had reportedly come as a "complete surprise" to Cruise, 50, who was in Iceland shooting the sci-fi flick "Oblivion."
Holmes and Cruise announced on July 9 that they reached a settlement over their divorce. The actress reportedly has primary custody of the child.
Cruise flew from California to New York on Monday night to reunite with Suri. A picture of him carrying his daughter in the city was posted on Us Weekly magazine's website.
Holmes has meanwhile reportedly made school arrangements for her daughter. The actress, who was raised Catholic, has enrolled her in the elite Manhattan Catholic school Convent of the Sacred Heart, E! Online reported. Its alumni include the likes of Gloria Vanderbilt and Lady Gaga, who featured several of its schoolgirls in her 2011 ABC special "A Very Gaga Thanksgiving."
