Katie Holmes: The Broadway Community Is So Supportive!

Katie Holmes: The Broadway Community Is So Supportive!

Katie Holmes grins as she heads inside the Music Box Theater for a performance of Dead Accounts on Wednesday (November 28) in New York City.

The 33-year-old actress recently gave an interview to Playbill about the Broadway community.

“What I was shocked by, just because I didn’t know about it when I did All My Sons here, was how warm the Broadway community is,” Katie said. “Everyone is so supportive on Broadway — we send notes to shows on their opening nights, that sort of thing. I think it’s really fun to be here.”

Be sure to catch Katie in Dead Accounts, currently playing on the Great White Way.

‘Dead Accounts’ (in previews; opens on Thursday) This new comedy from Theresa Rebeck tests the strength of family ties when a man returns to his small-town home with a suspicious amount of cash and few answers to the questions raised. The play’s deluxe team includes two Tony magnets in the director Jack O’Brien and his leading man, Norbert Leo Butz, with a tasty supporting cast of Judy Greer, Josh Hamilton and Jayne Houdyshell. ***But the big news here is Katie Holmes: she returns to Broadway in her first starring role there, not to mention her first significant professional adventure since the tabloid storm of her divorce from Tom Cruise. Music Box Theater, 239 West 45th Street, (212) 239-6200, telecharge.com. (David Rooney)***
***Come see the ex-Mrs. Tom Cruise***

What was that Katie? @ 11/28/2012 at 4:10 pm

“What I was shocked by, just because I didn’t know about it when I did All My Sons here, was how warm the Broadway community is,” Katie said. “Everyone is so supportive on Broadway — we send notes to shows on their opening nights, that sort of thing. I think it’s really fun to be here.”

REALLY… Hmmmmm…flashback (All My Sons interview)

“I love doing Broadway,” she says, “It’s so much fun and I loved the cast and the community was so welcoming and wonderful.

Anyone who has seen her “act” knows that she was not cast for her talent. It’s shameful considering how many talented stage actresses are out there. But I guess she needed a little hobby and her ex-husband’s name bought that for her.

The more things change, the more they remain the same.

The 2nd post is a clarification of the first just incase no one saw the glaring disparity on how the ex- Mrs Cruise is being billed for the show vs the rest of the cast.
Katie is the money draw and everyone else has the acting/stage performance chops, except for Judy Greer, who is making her debut, but will still probably receive better reviews.

@NYT (translation):

When you think about it, this was a very smart move to do Broadway on her part. Since her marriage to Tom she has had a string of movie bombs, her magazine covers haven’t sold any better than with a nobody on the cover–ditto for her endorsements. She got scathing reviews for her role as a judge on the dance show, she has shown she can’t really sing or dance. Her one success in the years married to Tom was All My Sons while her reviews were lukewarm, her presence sold the theater out.. Going back to Broadway with Dead Accounts I bet her management team hopes to emulate the success of AMS so she doesn’t appear to be such a total failure. There is absolutely no way she would have gotten the part if she wasn’t the ex-Mrs. Tom Cruise. I’ve seen well over 200 Broadway productions and she was one of the most awful performances I’ve seen and that included the horrible performance by Amanda Peet in Barefoot in the Park (great rest of the cast like AMS tho). She got this part for one reason and one reason only: Mrs. ex-Tom Cruise. I think people are getting sick of her like they are Tommy girl. It will be interesting to see if they flock to get a glimpse of her now. If she does pull it off–she won’t come off as such a loser to the honchos that cast other Broadway productions and movies. And she might, just might, get another movie part that she doesn’t have to buy.

give her a shot people!…. who knows how she will do. It takes a great amount of courage to do broadway especially when you are coming from screen. From what i hear it’s hard to be accepted w/ the community. I think she could use her name to do some films and that would be easy and more $. I think she likes a challenge and wants to learn. She clearly learning a lot about life lately (as we all do) cut her some slack, seriously. I respect her so much for leaving Tom. It must have been really difficult as well.

@JLR: Do you mean a free ride??

Sincerely concerned @ 11/28/2012 at 7:16 pm

@JLR: Reviews are tomorrow…

She has such a frumpy “soft dough” face.

What is up with that?

Oh dear, DB is back again to tell us about his obsession with Katie Holmes. It is especially funny that you are so obsessed with her face. How many times can you repeat your insanity about her “soft dough” face, whatever you think that even means. She has the face she was born with and it looks very good. I’m sorry if you would prefer she have a thousand plastic surgeries like your hero Tom Cruise. I can imagine him in a few years unable, to form expressions at all on his face. It seems you need to worry less about Katie’s face and more about your ” soft dough” brain. Your life would then be considerably more rewarding.

She Brings Great Snacks @ 11/28/2012 at 11:44 pm

[Judy Greer, Dead Accounts Vanity Fair interview at Huffington Post]

So how has it been working with Katie Holmes and the rest of the cast and crew?

I wouldn’t say anything bad anyway, but I’m not lying when I say it’s been one of the — I also don’t want to say anything hyperbolic because I want you to believe me — it’s been so special. Everyone always says, “Oh, she’s great, it’s great, the project’s great.” But it really is. It’s been terrific. I mean, Jack O’Brien, I wish I could just record every word that comes out of his mouth because I’m learning more from him and this process than I feel like I’ve learned from any other director I’ve ever worked with. And I think Norbert Leo Butz is one of the greatest actors I’ve ever worked with, and I’ve worked with a lot. And Katie is one of the hardest-working actresses I’ve ever worked with. She cares so much. She works so hard. She’s early to rehearsal and the last person to leave. She brings really awesome snacks, by the way.

She brings really awesome snacks? Good to know. o_O

***And Katie and I will go in our dressing room and gossip about whatever for a few minutes.***

Yeah, “about whatever” is code for “the ex-Mrs. Cruise drama filled life”

The reviews should confirm all of the above, great cast, except for the dull (but hard working, cares so much) Katie Holmes, who brings really awesome snacks.

SURI HAS CAVITIES !!! @ 11/28/2012 at 11:52 pm

.
Is it from using a bottle? Starchy carbs? Poor care?

Tom cruise gave her a career….. katie saw money she saw a movement in her life and career meeting tom the day tom started talking about his sci fi life he had major negative reviews he’s been in that sci fi sh** for years people loved him when Tom jump up and for this B**** the world couldn’t belive it talking about his sci fi life it ruined him such a private man lost it for a second for this. I don’t dislike katie but Tom is not an attention ***** like katie. And If tom wants plastic surgery why not he’s a money maker his face is money and yes Katie has a dough face not ugly but time is telling us she too needs a fix
also for leaving tom she milked what she could she was not happy and moved on tom’s not stupid he had a tight prenup. but he’s not tight tom gave her a lot did he give YOU ANYTHING what do you mean your happy she left him mind your own your a fool. Katie is in it to win it she was in that sci fi sh*** for a while dont think she did not know what she was doing. my guess KH probably wanted more kids since Tom & Katie had different views on raising Suri Tom probably new not to have any more with Katie

So, its Katie being Joey (Dawson’s Creek) being Lorna (Dead Accounts), or at least that is what I saw.

Her voice is so, what’s the word?

That's It! @ 11/29/2012 at 12:25 am

@chip:
Grating, Annoying, Irritating…. GET’S ON YOUR LAST GOOD NERVE VOICE!

Thanks Chip!

@Thornton: I wasn’t aware that Tom Cruise – or anybody else for that matter – was responsible for the amount of elasticity in her skin and the expressions she chooses to make with it.

I wonder how I could have possibly missed that connection?

Oh DB, do you have trouble understanding what people write? I never said Tom Cruise was responsible for her facial expression or the elasticity in her skin. I only said there is nothing wrong with her face, in fact many people find her very attractive. But, even if her skin wasn’t the best, how shallow and nasty are you to constantly go on about it. I only brought your hero Tom Cruise into it to point out your hypocrisy in going on about Katie’s skin when vain Tom continues to have all these plastic surgeries. I’ve never understood people who are so filled with hatred for people they don’t even know that they constantly attack them. And in your case in such a shallow way it makes you seem ridiculous. I think Tom is crazy and his cult extremely dangerous, but I have mostly just tried to ignore him until lately. But seeing his crazy, nasty fan base and scientoligist cult members attack people Tom doesn’t like has changed my mind. He needs to be exposed for what he really is if that’s the kind of effect he has on people like yourself. Thank you for letting me and others see we need to expose Tom Cruise and his cult.

Where do you get off that she has to buy parts, #8? She’s in demand enough and is more popular and talented than you claim.

@Thornton: I don’t understand the hate. I have done you no wrong, have I? I just have an opinion that might differ from yours. Can we not simply disagree and ignore each other? No need to fill this site with personal attacks. It’s not about us really, it’s about the people in the stories, after all. I would ask you to consider that please. I would prefer to bury the hatchet, as it were.

Thank you

DB, Thornton’s aim is to expose the shallowness of your comments. They’re always superficial and degrading. If you despise Holmes ignore any posts about her. It comes across manic and disturbing.
