Katie Holmes stages comeback with a bang
Katie Holmes, fresh from her divorce settlement with Tom Cruise, is going back to work on Broadway for the first time in four years in a new play set to open this fall, producers said on Thursday.
She will star in Theresa Rebeck's new comedy Dead Accounts. She'll play the role of Lorna in the five-character show that tackles "issues of corporate greed, small town values, and whether or not your family will always welcome you back ... with no questions asked," said producers.
"I am thrilled to be coming back to the Broadway community and honoured to be a part of this team," Katie told The New York Times. Tony Award winner Jack O'Brien (Hairspray, The Full Monty) will direct the comedy.
Katie, 33, took less than two weeks to end her nearly six-year marriage to Tom, 50. She recently moved to New York City with their six-year-old daughter Suri. Earlier this week, Tom visited Suri for the first time since the divorce after he had been filming in California and Iceland.
During her marriage, Katie appeared in several TV movies and shows, including the miniseries The Kennedys as Jacqueline Kennedy. The former Dawson's Creek star made her Broadway debut in the 2008 production of Arthur Miller's All My Sons, which also cast Patrick Wilson.
