'Dead Accounts' Reviews
How did Katie Holmes' first post-split acting gig fare?
Katie Holmes’ Broadway run has been cut short.

Her latest project, Dead Accounts, is set to close seven weeks ahead of schedule — with its last engagement on Jan. 6.

“I am extremely proud of this production and the cast,” producer Jeffrey Finn said in a statement [via 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,” he added.

Dead Accounts is Holmes’ first acting gig since splitting with Tom Cruise on June 29.

The play, which received mixed reviews, revolves around Holmes’ character Lorna, a Cincinnati woman whose con-man brother Jack — played by two-time Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz — unexpectedly returns home from New York City only to turn their family upside down.

According to the New York Times, it reportedly only made just under 25 percent of its potential takings and had the lowest attendance of any show on Broadway, with only 38.1 percent of its seats filled last week.

Dead Accounts will close after 27 preview performances and 44 regular performances at the Music Box Theatre in New York City. It was originally scheduled to end on Feb. 24.
