Broadway Casting Roundup: Katie Holmes, Glenn Close and Annie's New

" New divorcée Katie Holmes will return to Broadway this fall in “Dead Accounts,” a comedy by Theresa Rebeck (“Seminar”). The actress, 33, last took to the New York stage in the 2008 revival of “All My Sons.”

The play centers on Holmes' character's brother, Jack, who returns home to Ohio with a multitude of secrets. Holmes will play Lorna, who still lives at home with her parents. Tony Award winner Jack O’Brien (“Hairspray”) directs the production, slated for the Music Box Theater. 

 

“Jack’s unexpected return throws his family into a frenzy, and his sister Lorna needs answers," a press release from the producers states. "Is he coming home or running away? Where is his wife everyone hates? And how did he get all that money?”

 

Rebeck is the creator of NBC’s “Smash.” Visit deadaccountsonbroadway for more "
