Since filing for divorce nearly a month back,has been spotted a number of times skipping around New York City as she enjoys her hard earned freedom with six year daughter, Suri. While fans and friends are happy for her, they could not help but wonder when Holmes will get back to work. Well, the waiting is over, as Katie looks forward to make a second appearance to Broadway this fall.
Play writer Theresa Rebeck confirmed to The Wrap that Holmes will be returning to Broadway for her play “Dead Accounts” in which she will be playing a 30 some woman who is stuck living with her parents in Cincinnati. Her life gets shaken up when her brother comes back to Cincinnati with a lot of money and a missing wife. The play is set to open at the Music Box Office Theater in New York but so far no opening date has been released. Up till now, Holmes is the only cast member announced.
"It's beyond cool, honestly. The whole team is lively as hell. I am positively tingling with delight," Rebeck said.
This is not he first times for Katie Holmes to hit Broadway. In 2008, she co-starred with, and Patrick Wilson in the revival of the play, “All My Sons”.
Holmes has done some impressive work in films such as “The Ice Storm” (1997) and “Wonder Boys” (2000), however, her acting career literally stalled following her marriage within 2006. While the former Mrs. Cruise has always managed to remain on the top of the gossip pages, her earlier successes were tarnished by the critical failures that followed, such as “Mad Money” (2008) and later watching Maggie Gyllenhall replace her in the Batman sequel, “The Dark Knight Rises”.
Nonetheless, with her rebound to the Broadway, Holmes appears eager to prove that she is over and done with the mistakes she did during her 5 year romance with Cruise. She has been offered a number of acting opportunities the month following the divorce filing and she has been focusing on staying busy as she filmed a guest stint on Project Runway: All Stars, with her eyes fixed on an upcoming film with Chace Crawford.
Soon enough, the 33 year old actress will also find herself at the New York Fashion Week when she debuts her line, Holmes and Yang, which she co-designs.
