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.

    KH is mediocre in all things and would be nothing special without involvement with Tom C. Sorry, but there are a million pretty girls out there and it is sad that they always have to rely on a powerful man in order to come into their own.

    Well said. I agree.

    Tom Cruise is a good actor. Now don't get it twisted. I may not be a fan of the Scientology or other things Tom has done but he is a good actor. Just because we may want to support Katie and her freedom from what appeared to all as a suffocating marriage there is no reason to speak negatively about Tom Cruise and his acting skills to do so.

    Katie just needs time. Incredibly insecure (Letterman show) crooked mouth under stress, makeup? not a natural beauty - and posture? Showing clothing and legs are bowed and turned in. Hands in pocket? Maybe, just be a really rich Mommy to Suri and be glad to be away from Scientology!

    LA PERSONA QUE ME LO ENVIO ESTA TODAVIA ASOMBRADA DE LO OCURRIDO, YA QUE ELLA DICE QUE LO HIZO POR HACERLO Y QUE PIDIO ALGO QUE CREIA CASI IMPOSIBLE DE LOGRAR PROBEMOS. * Para ti mismo di el nombre de la unica persona del sexo opuesto con quien quieras estar (tres veces...)... * Piensa en algo que quieras lograr dentro de la proxima semana y repitelo para ti mismo(a) (seis veces)... * Piensa en algo que quieras que pase entre tu y la persona especial (que dijiste en el no. 1) y dilo a ti mismo/a (doce veces)... * Ahora haz un ultimo y final deseo acerca del deseo que escogiste. * Despues de leer esto tienes 1 hora para mandarlo a 15 temas y lo que pediste se te hara realidad en 1 semana. A la mayor cantidad de gente a quien lo mandes mas fuerte se hara tu deseo. Si tu escoges ignorar esta carta lo contrario del deseo te sucedera, o esto no sucedera jamas.............. Que tus días estén llenos de logros y tus noches de sueños copia y pega esto en 15 o + tema

    Just saying, she can't act. AT. ALL. Sad because she's been in the business for years, yet still can't act to save her life. She should leave that to her ex.... seriously.

    Katie is sweetly pretty and very charming. She does need to work on her skills as an actor. She will always be loved as a darling girl, but she has no depth or grit or passion when it comes to acting. Keep moving forward Katie, and act, act, act. You are to special a being to be left in the dust. You have gotten this far. You are meant for greatness. Your fans love you dearly pretty girl.

    Does she evewr smile? Allway a smirk!

    The problem with Katie is she is not a good actress. She is a B actress and is average for TV parts.
