Katie Holmes is Bound for Broadway

Katie Holmes is Bound for Broadway

Katie Holmes will reportedly make her Broadway debut in a production of Arthur Miller‘s All My Sons this fall.

Back in March, Katie was still in final negotiations, but now the deal is all but certain. Producer Eric Falkenstein told OK! Magazine he thinks Katie is perfect for the part.

Katie is very well suited for the role of Ann,” he says. “There is an additional layer of soul to Ann and from the work I’ve seen of Katie, she has always impressed with multi-faceted characters. She would nail it.”

“Despite being in the spotlight and her celebrity status, the fact remains that she has a tremendous record of performances,” he says. “I think Katie is a tremendous actor. Whenever she decides to come to the stage she’ll be terrific.”

A formal announcement is expected to take place within the next 10 days.

Katie Holmes will reportedly make her Broadway debut in a production of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons this fall.

Who cares?
She is not a good actress.

# 2

Good for her!
I think she will be great, she is a good actress and she’d be hard pressed to go wrong in an Arthur Miller play, he knew his stuff!

# 3

Good for her! I’m sure she’ll do great.

# 4

What “tremendous record of performances”? Like, a dozen movies, Dawson’s Creek plus the Muppets from Space? Does that count so impressive?

# 5

it’s interesting that recently she’s been on this rampage of challenging herself: a marathon, now theatre (much much more difficult than film)…hmm. She didn’t seem to show any of this drive before Tom (and I’m not a fan of nutty Tom at all).

i cant wait i know katie will do an awesome job she is wonderful.

# 7

Well done Katie! Show them what you got!

I think its a good decision to do a play for Katie. I don’t how she will manage with Suri and her family…as a couple her and Tom usually support each other but good luck to her anyway.

this is a bad,she is such bad actress,wait to see the reviews.she can even act on movies she will act on theatre?

KH is a bimbo and a nothing actress. Why does she want to go out there and embarass herself again. Hasn’t she already DONE New York.

KH you should stay with Suri and take care of her, she has special needs, it’s not just about designer dresses for her. Suri covers her
ears, she looks distraught and withdrawn, troubled.
Give her the life a child her age needs (what is her age?). Now she’ll
be carried all over, all hours of the night, with paps flashing bulbs at her. Put her in a good pre-school where she can interact and get her off that stupid bottle.

You can’t act so atleast be a good Mom. Your Broadway joke will not be good for Suri.

blah blah blah……(yawn)
there, I said it all,Katie

Sorry Katie, but you can´t act. Don´t do this, you will regret it.

Although this could be a good move for her career-wise, I doubt she is strong enough to carry the part in this Arthur Miller play. The producer proclaiming that she is great at multi-faceted characters must be thinking $$$$$ as people flock to broadway to see her. She is shallow at best as an actor.

I love her hair in the picture.

People won’t buy tickets to see you except for your folks who will fly in for the show and some scientology wackos. Maybe Mr. Beckham but not Mrs. because she’s not your friend anymore, maybe Travolta. But really how will the seats be filled most nights? You’ll need an audience, somehow. The show could even be picketed because of all the issues surrounding y’all.
If you feel you have to “act”, if that’s what you are attempting to do, try another movie and see if it flops or not.

What a compliment! I stared at the picture to see if I could see what he saw. I think I will want to see it if it comes my way.

Ann Deever, the character which will be played by Katie Holmes was once played by Joan Allen. I only want to say:

Katie keep your fingers off Ann Deever. You are far far far away from reaching Joan Allen!

i’m not quite sure if this whole broadway thing will work for her.

Wow. Wonder how she got that gig. Did she audition for it, or am I being naive?

She did not run the NY marathon. Probably got this gig because TC bought it. Her acting is impressive? Obviously the talk of a bought person. I saw no acting talent in her acting. Even in TV land, it was mediocre.

i think Katie is talented and I am happy for her, if she is happy. But it doesn’t seem like REAL happiness, it seems like an act.

Maybe it’s just her shyness..?

I’m sure Tom had nothing to do with this….

Agree with 2cents – she got this job the same way she got to “run the NYC marathon”. Cruise money and pressure
