Poor Reviews Force Katie Holmes Broadway Show to Close

Katie Holmes Broadway comeback will be cut short after bad reviews have plagued the play and forced Katie’s show to close.

Tom Cruise’s ex-wife played in the “Dead Accounts” play alongside Norbet Leo Butz who played Katie’s character’s brother. Unfortunately, even the popular Broadway stars couldn’t save the play from closing earlier than expected.

Katie Holme’s play is to close just one week into the New Year, Jan. 6, after a relatively unimpressive 44 performances and 27 previews.

It was back in November that producers realized the Broadway show just wasn’t making the cut. On opening night, Nov. 29, the show was riddled with bad review after bad review.

The Theresa Rebeck drama is about the story of Norbet Leo But’z character’s secret that turns a surprise family reunion upside down and begins to break the family.

Rebeck is also the creator of NBC’s “Smash” and created several more successful plays such as “Seminar” and “Mauritius,” both of which received much better reviews than her latest work.

Despite what the critics had to say producer Jeffrey Finn is more than impressed with his cast members.

“I am exteremly proud of this production and the cast,” he told E! News. “Theresa Rebeck and 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.”

As for Holmes, she made her Broadway debut back in 2008 in the play “All My Sons” after she first kick stated her acting career by playing on Dawson’s Creek as a teen.

She was married to actor Tom Cruise in 2006, who is also the father of her adorable daughter Suri, but the beloved couple called it quits this year.
