She looks great! I’m so happy for her and admire how she’s trying to get on with her life despite all the chaos. It looks like Katie just wants things to go back to ‘normal’.

Are those two metal teeth?

I’ve never seen a little is with such serious dental work. Poor thing.

The reviews said she was boring.

There you go Just Jared employees. THAT is a story about her that is actually newsworthy. :)

Hope that the experience with the Broadway community turns out to be a positive one.

She seems to need some help in regaining her footing – her confidence, and it would be great if this situation helped her along in that.

Good luck to her on this, at the very least for Suri’s sake.

@Suri’s Teeth
Wow! They aren’t even her molars. She seems to be developing an underbite too.

Suri doesn’t fall from the tree. Kate’s teeth are so brown. Wonder if there is a toothbrush in their place.

Of course JJ would post this now after most of the reviews (lukewarm to negative) are in the previous post.

Here’s the list…

LA TIMES Critic – “suggest that Holmes’ acting is only skin- deep. ”

BACKSTAGE BROADWAY REVIEW – “Holmes can’t give the passive, colorless Lorna distinction and contributes a whininess that’s at odds with the character’s essentially sympathetic nature.”

THEATER REVIEW – “Perhaps Holmes was looking for an non-challenging assignment. ”

CHICAGO TRIBUNE – “Holmes was struggling vocally Wednesday night and generally lacks sufficiently expansive definition”

ASSOCIATED PRESS – “Holmes relies too much on a whiny teenage angst and a guilelessness that worked on TV but lacks nuance onstage.”

NYPOST (My Favorite) – “Holmes, on the other hand, doesn’t have similar stage chops to fall back on. She’s got one note — shrill, impatient — and yells it at top volume, making a vein bulge on her slender neck. You wish director Jack O’Brien had told his star to tone it down a notch, but he seems to have just leaned back and prayed for the best.”

NY DAILY NEWS – “Holmes, 33, a film and TV starlet notorious for being one-half of the now-defunct supercouple TomKat, plies her lopsided grin, furrows her brow, cranks her voice level to loud ”


Katie’s post Cruise endeavors:

NYFW Presentation – ***crickets***
Dead Accounts – All My Sons redux (mediocre)

Return to the Buckeye State for the Win!

I think she’s really talented. Best wish for her..

Good for her. DB…you can’t con a con man with your fake sincerity.

Dead Accounts Review: Katie Holmes in Slight, Odd Hate Letter to New York – by Jonathan Mandell – http://newyorktheater.me/2012/11/29/dead-accounts-review-slight-odd-hate-letter-to-new-york/

“It is certainly fun to see Katie Holmes back for her sophomore turn on Broadway, playing the sister who never has gotten it together, playing against her beauty in grey sweatpants or dungarees. She is not a central character here, but her comic timing is professional. Her emotional moments are often not credible, but this seems far more the fault of the writing and of Jack O’Brien’s direction. Of course, I could just be smitten by her – as is one of the characters, Phil (Josh Hamilton) – and thus willing to lay the blame elsewhere.”

USA Today Review @ 11/30/2012 at 4:49 am

‘Dead Accounts’ cashes in on our culture wars’ – By Elysa Gardner – http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/2012/11/29/dead-accounts-broadway-review/1727247/

“As for Holmes, she appears more at ease than she did in a 2008 revival of All My Sons, and shows an affinity for goofy comedy; but her restless, shouting Lorna is too much of an overgrown kid. That’s certainly part of the character, but you can’t help but wonder what a slightly more mature, nuanced actress might have brought to the role.”

Bloomberg Review @ 11/30/2012 at 4:53 am

Katie Holmes, Plain Jane; Redgrave; ‘Asher Lev’: Review – By Jeremy Gerard – http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-11-30/katie-holmes-plain-jane-redgrave-asher-lev-review.html

“Katie Holmes is fine, if oddly cast, as the diet-obsessed homebody sister of a hopped-up embezzler in “Dead Accounts,” an all-too-aptly-titled entry in one of the worst seasons in memory for new shows on Broadway.”

Village Voice Review @ 11/30/2012 at 4:57 am

Norbert Leo Butz and Katie Holmes In Dead Accounts: My Review – By Michael Musto – http://blogs.villagevoice.com/dailymusto/2012/11/dead_accounts.php

“Holmes’ performance seems pretty surfacey, but she shines in a bitter Act Two speech about the culpability of greedy banks, who arguably did a more legalized version of what Jack has pulled off. Alas, her character then goes back to righteously dull yelps of “You stole!”–utterances that contribute to an unexciting overabundance of everyday bickering.”

Scribicide Review @ 11/30/2012 at 5:09 am

http://scribicide.com/2012/11/30/the-percentage-is-negotiable/

“It is no surprise, of course, that Ms. Holmes is terrible. She delivers her lines as if she is expending all her energy in remembering them and none of it in acting; it is the kind of performance we often see from an average high school drama student. Still, she is not conspicuously bad, like many Hollywood transplants. Hers is an inoffensive, if inadequate, presence, and one that is outshined by her worthier co-stars.”

ugh….who buys or wears that crap? Black stockings? ugh!

Can’t even “pose” right.

Go back to Ohio Katie. Ugh

what the hell is she wearing????????????

@ Suri’s teeth – that could be a brace but yeah, it looks like 2 big metal fillings.

Sincerely concerned @ 11/30/2012 at 9:02 am

@No Surprise: The reviews ALSO said the writer “didn’t deliver”. Hard to act when the material is not so good???

Sincerely concerned @ 11/30/2012 at 9:19 am

U mean to tell me that she would dare walk on that stage with no preparation. I.e, coaching, training, direction and try to deliver? At $86 a ticket, THAT IS NOT RIGHT!!!!

@ Krix. If you can’t be honest, your opinion is meaningless. For instance you say the LA Times suggests her acting is only skin deep when in fact it said the exact opposite, ” This isn’t to suggest that Holmes’ acting is only skin deep. She’s charming, natural and, yes, about as fresh-faced as a moisturizer model.” Notice the word isn’t. You pick and choose what parts of the review to show to make it agree with your preconceived notions,and that’s when your not outright lying like with the LA Times. Of course you don’t post reviews like the New York Times which was very positive about her performance. katie holmes got a few mediocre reviews but mostly solid to good reviews. The writing was what got mostly bad reviews. Of the actors Judy Greer got the worst reviews, and very few people would say Judy is a bad actress. Everyone gets bad reviews sometimes.

Sincerely concerned @ 11/30/2012 at 9:22 am

@Melanie: F.U.

Sincerely concerned @ 11/30/2012 at 9:30 am

@Thornton: I TRULY wish her the best, BUT at $86 a ticket in this economy, I will only have respect if she takes those reviews and “gets direction”. I mean her teeth actually look nice. Her dress for her body type is perfect. Her skin actually looks NORMAL. But can we dress her up but not taker her out???
