    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’.

    DB Says:

    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.

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

    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 ”

    New York Theatre Review Says:

    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 Says:

    ‘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 Says:

    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 Says:

    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 Says:

    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.”

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

  22. 22
    Sincerely concerned Says:

    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!!!!

    Thornton Says:

    @ 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 Says:

    @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???

  26. 26
    Sincerely concerned Says:

    @chip: how about nude stockings with nude shoes or lighter on the black stockings? (I really think she is heeding our advice re: her cankles) Other than sticking her gut out(anterior tilting – There’s a trick to correcting posture: with you thumbs on your bely button, ring fingers on your pubic bone and your palms on your iliac crests, to form a triangle, your thumbs SHOULD be superior to you ring fingers) I think she looks amazing!!!.

    toria Says:

    What is up with that dress? Way too cluttered? Is that thing around her neck part of her dress or did she buy that and the belt thinking she was on the cutting edge of fashion? She also did a terrible job with her make up. I don’t care that it is minimalist, but her foundation washes her out. The dress definitely is wearing her instead of the other way around. Katie, Katie, Katie get a stylist.

    Could not agree more with DB about the doughy skin and R/O ETOH abuse. Poor Auri!!!

    Karen Says:

    Her reviews seem to mirror her as a person – nothing terribly objectionable, but nothing to suggest actual talent and get excited about.

    The real question is whether her status as the poor former Mrs. Cruise will continue to get her work — it would be such an injustice to all of the working actors out there who actually know how to do their job.

    Krix Says:

    @Thornton:

    The significance (meaningfulness) of MY OPINION (snippets from reviews) was not for your approval or validation.

    FYI – In another sentence the same review/reviewer states “Holmes is unable to give dimension to Lorna…..” [the "..." is where he goes into a description of Lorna -- I am including this tidbit so as not to be labelled as hiding something or dishonesty].

    [my summation] “no dimension –> superficial —-> skin deep” [see how that worked]

    “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.” —- POT MEET KETTLE

    You read the review one way [your opinion] and I obviously read it another way [my opinion].

    Your call on posting the “good reviews”…I promise no name calling on my part.

    HAPPY POSTING!

    Alexianna Says:

    Every review I’ve seen for Katie has been bad. Whoever on here who said they were good is delusional or picking out one decent comment in between the negative review. Katie is a joke and making her living now off being TCs Ex-wife. I wonder how long that will work for her.

    Holmes — meant to lend marquee-name draw after her marriage to and divorce from an A-list movie magnet — couldn’t be better at delineating the unceasing frustrations exhibited by a lonely woman under stress.
    David Finkle Huffington Post

    Tabloid-reading neighbors who could care less about the theater lately have been asking me, “So, how’s Katie Holmes in that new Broadway show?”

    Short answer: Katie Holmes is perfectly lovely, thanks.

    At home, Jack looks for sympathy to his sister, Lorna (Katie Holmes, with a solid performance),
    Robert Kahn NBC New York

    None of this, however, stops the members of the cast from giving performances that never fail to fizz and sparkle. We’ve come to expect that from Mr. Butz, who might just be the smartest stage comedian of his generation, but Ms. Holmes, who floundered her way through the 2008 Broadway revival of “All My Sons,” proves to be a pleasant surprise. Not only has she learned to project, but she’s unafraid to be unglamorous.
    Terry Teachout The Wall Street Journal

    The understated work of Hamilton and Holmes — as Phil dances nervously around his 25-year attraction to Lorna and she remains stubbornly oblivious — gives the play a sliver of emotional engagement.

    The Bottom Line

    A tasty cast helps Theresa Rebeck’s undercooked play go down easily, even if it leaves zero aftertaste
    David Rooney The Hollywood Reporter

    Let me assure you that Ms. Holmes, who was a tad unsteady in her Broadway debut four years ago in Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons,” appears much more at ease

    Despite the differences between their characters’ metabolisms (as well as their acting styles) Ms. Holmes and Mr. Butz summon an appealingly natural family rapport, especially in their first scene, which turns out to have been the show’s high point.
    Ben Brantley The New York Times

    These are just a few I found for you Alexianna. She generally got fine to good reviews, with a few not so good. The people who didn’t like the play put most of the blame on the writing. I don’t know if you are delusional or just an uneducated scientologist who is not allowed access to the internet, or both, but you don’t have to spew your hatred. You can check things out for yourself.

    Alexianna Says:

    Thornton, I’m not obsessed with Katie H like you are so I won’t cut and paste all the “awful” full reviews that I’ve read. You are clearly delusional to waste your time. Also, don’t insult me by calling me a scientologist. I can’t stand that cult or Tom Cruise.

    Kylie Says:

    I love when people like Thorton resort to calling other people scientologists when s/he doesn’t like was it being said about Katie Holmes.

    Holmes has never proven herself to be anything other than a mediocre to downright awful actress and yet has one opportunity after the other available to her. Folks don’t care for that, and it has nothing to do with scientology. Sorry that the majority of people out there are not buying the sympathy game spewed out by her PR team and actually expect her to have talent to keep her job.
