    i wish the paparazzi worked this hard to get pictures of other Broadway stars. i would love to have seen these pictures of say, Darren Criss or Nick Jonas leaving their theatres when they were doing How To Succeed…

    The play is closing several months early because it is atrocious and the sales are zero.

    I’m switching between Haunted Encounters: Face to Face and college football. I just thought you should know.

    The acting was good. But the play was not all that. So they said…

    Of course the # of seats being filled is low. If I heard a show had gotten bad reviews, I surely wouldn’t shell out big bucks.

    @Sincerely concerned:

    On the contrary several shows have gotten less than stellar reviews, but due to the competent acting, word-of-mouth or the public disagreeing with the critics. Spiderman didn’t get great reviews, but it hovers around 80 percent full. Phantom which has been playing forever and gets wildly differing reviews hovers between 70-80% capacity. AMS didn’t get totally stellar reviews, but it had the GREAT John Lithgow and Diane Weist in it–Broadway favorites. I think DA thought Katie was the total draw there. Wrong. And any NYC theater goer and aficionado could have told you that seeing AMS had nothing to do with Katie Holmes (who was the weakest actor in it) and everything to do with the other actors. Peter and the Starcatcher’s reviews haven’t been great and it hovers between 60-70 percent. When you have a weak play like DA and you put in a very weak actress like KA and the rest of the cast are known to Broadway fans and not so much to the general public–well it is recipe for failure. And it failed. It is an off-Broadway play and that is where it should have been put on. It most likely would be sold out if it was. But ten-to-one Katie and her management team would probably feel Off Broadway was a huge step down for her and thinking she’d replicate “her” (make that Lithgow, Weist and Patrick) success with DA. Instead now instead of playing to a sold-out crowd off broadway–she is now a failure on Broadway. Good move Katie and team. NOT.

    You can’t really compare something like Spiderman to Dead acounts. Spiderman is an iconic character with a huge built in audience. Phantom is a unique haunting experience. A small simple play with terrible reviews is a pretty tough sell.

    @dani: that, plus – was her acting so weak, that she couldn’t pull off a ‘midwestern girl’ which is exactly her profile?? is she so far from her past (already)??

    Well.of course the play would close earlier…the play is crappy and Katie has no talent or looks to be an actress.Even when she was in Dawson’s Creek,she was boring.I only watched DC because of two of the actors.Katie is a very mediocre actress,her movies don’t sell much,she’s tacky and extremely boring.Who would want to watch her playing basically herself on a theater?I wouldn’t,not even for free.

    @missy:

    A small simple less than great play (whether it is the script, directing or acting) belongs on Off Broadway. Not Broadway. Broadway is full of theaters with lots of seats. A play has to be stellar for it to make it on Broadway. For instance I’m not Rappaport with Judd Hirsch and Clevon Little was simple and it was a great Broadway Play. Did close to 900 performances and won Tonys for Best Play and Hirsch. Dead Accounts lacks a decent script, didn’t think the directing was that good and Katie was pretty cringe-worthy awful. Although not the main star, she had enough presence on stage to make one want to curl up in embarrassment for her.

    It’s just mind boggling that this woman thinks she can act. With Tom gone, hopefully the people stroking her ego are gone too. Instead of all those dance classes, she should put that time into acting classes.
