Dead Accounts, the Broadway play starring Katie Holmes, has ended its run early after receiving mixed-to-poor reviews after opening last month.
Despite the buzz generated from the actress' starring role, the play will close on Jan. 6, seven weeks ahead of schedule, E! News reports. By the time it goes dark for good, the show will have mounted 27 preview performances and 44 regular performances at New York's Music Box Theatre.
In Dead Accounts, Holmes, 34, portrays an Ohio woman dealing with the return of her prodigal brother and his effects on the family dynamic. Two-time Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz plays her brother.
Despite the early closing, producer Jeffrey Finn praised the cast and the play's author and director for their work.
"I am extremely proud of this production and the cast. [Playwright] Theresa Rebeck and [director] Jack O'Brien have created an inspiring and hilarious new play and we are all sad to see Dead Accounts end on Broadway. I look forward to working with this remarkably talented cast and creative team again very soon," Finn said in a statement.
The play was Holmes' first acting job since she moved to New York City and finalized her high-profile divorce from Tom Cruise on July 9, 2012. Holmes had previously acted on Broadway in a revival of Arthur Miller's All My Sons in 2008.
She next appears onscreen in 2013 in as-yet-untitled drama co-starring Jean Reno, Allison Janney and William Hurt.
