Katie Holmes gets back to work after divorce

The newly single actress signs on to star in a new Broadway play, wraps up a movie, cofounds a clothing line, and more

It’s been less than three weeks since Katie Holmes inked her divorce settlement with Tom Cruise, but the actress is already ramping up her next career moves. Last week, the 33-year-old signed on to star this fall in Dead Accounts, a new Broadway play from Smash creator Theresa Rebeck about a sister dealing with the return of her estranged brother. It will mark Holmes’ second stint on the Great White Way following a well-received turn in the 2008 revival of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons (costarring John Lithgow and Patrick Wilson). Before hitting the stage, the actress, who recently wrapped a film version of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull, is working on a film called Molly, which she’s co-writing, co-producing, and starring in as a single mother. Additionally, she and stylist Jeanne Yang cofounded a clothing line, Holmes & Yang, which will do its first-ever New York Fashion Week presentation in September. In the meantime, Holmes fans can expect her to continue starring in paparazzi shots of her shopping trips to Whole Foods.
