NEW YORK – Katie Holmes has decided what her first major acting project will be since announcing her divorce from Tom Cruise: Broadway.
The actress will star in Theresa Rebecks Dead Accounts, a five-character comedy that will be directed by three-time Tony Award winner Jack OBrien, producers said Thursday.
All eyes were on Holmes next step as a single woman. Was it to be a big film or a small one? Or more TV? Her decision to return to the physically strenuous eight-show-a-week life of a Broadway stage actress indicates a willingness to jump into the deep end.
Her last appearance on Broadway, which also marked her debut, was in the 2008 production of All My Sons. The news that she will return to a Times Square stage is also a signal that she may intend to stay in New York City.
