Katie Holmes may be leaving Tom Cruise, but she’s getting back together with Broadway. She will return to the stage to star in Dead Accounts, a new play by Smash creator and season 1 showrunner Theresa Rebeck, opening at Broadway’s Music Box Theatre this fall, the producers announced Thursday.
The five-character comedy follows Jack, who returns home to his family, including his sister Lorna (Holmes), who is caring for their aging parents. Jack’s return throws things into a tailspin. According to the logline, the show “tackles the timely issues of corporate greed, small town values, and whether or not your family will always welcome you back…with no questions asked.” Dead Accounts premiered at Cincinnati’s Playhouse in the Park in February.
The play will be directed by Tony winner Jack O’Brien (Catch Me If You Can). Holmes made her Broadway debut in the Arthur Miller revival All My Sons back in 2008. Rebeck’s most recent production, Seminar, closed on Broadway this past May.
