New York Buzz: Katie Holmes to Return to Broadway

While her name has been in headlines due to her high-profile divorce, Katie Holmes is looking to generate some happier buzz by returning to Broadway. This fall, according to the New York Times and other sources, Holmes will star in the new family comedy “Dead Accounts” by Theresa Rebeck, a Pulitzer Prize finalist whose play “Seminar” was on Broadway last season and who created the popular TV series Smash.

Holmes will reportedly portray a "fairly unglamorous character" who is living with her aging parents in Cincinnati while trying to pull her life together. “Dead Accounts,” which had its world premiere at the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park last winter, also focuses on one of her siblings, a prodigal son who returns home with secrets, including a load of new money and a missing wife.

Holmes was last on Broadway in the 2008 revival of Arthur Miller's "All My Sons." Performance dates, a theater, ticket info and casting for the four other roles will be announced in coming weeks.
