Katie Holmes Bumps Mario Lopez

Katie Holmes Bumps Mario Lopez

The curtain will go up Sept. 18 for previews of Katie Holmes‘ Broadway debut, but not before a little controversy.

Katie‘ show, All My Sons needed a bigger theater for their run, so Mario Lopez‘s A Chorus Line is getting booted from the theater they are currently showing in.

Katie wouldn’t sign a long-term agreement with her show, which is why it’s the limited run that it is. They had to figure out how to make more money with the time they had with her,” said a source told MSNBC.

The solution: Move to a musical theater. “Musical theaters have more seats than a traditional playhouse, so they can sell more tickets each week,” the source said. “That’s how the show ended up at the Schoenfeld Theater (where “Chorus Line” runs). Because of the All My Sons rehearsal schedule, they had to cut Mario Lopez’s run in A Chorus Line.

“[Mario] might be People’s hottest bachelor, but he’s pissed,” said the source. “Let’s face it, he doesn’t have much going on right now.”

The production, which also stars John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest and Patrick Wilson, officially opens Oct. 16 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre for a limited run through Jan. 11.

    No more Mario. I am sure everyone heard about his diva ways on Chorus Line. I am glad he is getting a dose of his own medicine. He ain’t the ****. He needs to go back to Animal Planet!!

    awww. . .kind of sad but seriously though, were people really lining up to see him?

    It looks like a great cast for All My Sons, with Katie Holmes being at the bottom. Is she really considered the draw for this play? If so, things are really screwed up.

    This show does have potential with Holmes’s fellow cast members, but Holmes hasn’t given a decent performance in ages. She was great in Pieces of April, maybe she’s great with the right material?

    Deep down Mario is happy. The Chorus Line was cutting into his man whoring time. Now he can fit 3 or 4 women into a day instead of just 2.

    I agree with #7 as well, Mario is kind of a has been and he def gives off a very into himself vibe, so I wouldn’t doubt a bruised ego on his behalf. However, I’m skeptical – how long do they think an interest in Katie Holmes will last after the initial curiousity in her performance fades? I’m not saying she doesn’t have the acting chops to pull it off, but recently (ex: Mad Money) she hasn’t proved herself able to carry a live show.

    I liked Katie in the early years of Dawson’s Creek but eventually I stopped watching the show. I saw a rerun a while back from the time period that I no longer watched and couldn’t believe the over acting that Katie was doing. The non stop twisted face expressions were insane. Then I watched Mad Money and there it was again, extreme over acting that was really difficult to watch.

    She should look into taking some acting classes or just give up acting all together.

    It’s sad that Katie is the draw for this because of her marriage. So much for Broadway being about talent- all she is is stunt casting.

    I don’t like Mario but I’d be pissed too if I were him. He’s getting knocked aside for TomKat.

    This story sounds like a whole lot of bull to make people think that Katie Holmes is a big draw. Theaters and play runs are planned out in advance, so Lopez’s run was likely to end in August, anyway.

    As to the producers making their money back on “All My Sons,” is this supposed to make us believe they had to fork over lots of $$ to get Katie? Because that isn’t how Broadway works–not even for the “fabulous Katie Holmes.”

    I don’t think on acount of her marriage will harm her any but I think she will do just fine on her own

    I am sick of Katie’s face with that stupid, crooked smirk. I wonder what she’s thinking when she makes that expression, if she thinks.

    Defintely not intrest in her acting..they just want to go see the freak show.

    We all know she got no talent at all!!!

    In anycase papawidea-rsebit-ch bought the play for her, he might as well buy tickets for his cult friends to go see their messaih beard who was sperminatd with the psycho hubbards sperm.

    Not sure how good Katie will actually be on Broadway, after all, she has never played anything but lighthearted stuff, not real character material. But who knows, could be a surprise. And of course, if the show doesn’t turn out to be great, then they will still have made enough money now that they will be playing in a bigger theater. There will surely be enough people pouring in right after the premiere.

    They could charge $400 or $500 per ticket, doesn’t matter, her BF will be buying all the tickets for the cult. What a joke, what a disgrace for broadway. Just like the marathon, a farce.
