Katie Holmes has officially returned to Broadway.
The former wife of Tom Cruise announced she was going to join the play Dead Accounts not long after she settled her divorce with her movie star ex -- and now, three and a half months later, the production is finally hitting the stage.
Dead Accounts opened for previews on Monday, and Holmes, 33, earned a good response from the audience in attendance. People was on hand for her performance and they note that Holmes "drew applause on several occasions," in particular when she managed to fix a broken prop without missing a beat. The crowd also responded well to her "defiant speech about Wall Street greed."
Holmes is no stranger to the Broadway stage. She made her debut in a 2008 revival of Arthur Miller's All My Sons, and it sounds like she feels comfortable returning to the theater circuit four years later. Dead Accounts follows Holmes as a woman living in Cincinnati whose brother returns home "with a load of new money and a missing wife."
When Holmes' costar Josh Hamilton was asked what his experience was like working with the Hollywood actress, he said, "Are you kidding me? She's a sweetheart."
Dead Accounts officially opens on Nov. 29.
