Katie Holmes Completes 'Dead Accounts' Broadway Run

Katie Holmes heads to the Music Box Theatre to perform the final show in the Broadway run of Dead Accounts on Sunday (January 6) in New York City.

The 34-year-old actress’ new play was cut short after low box office grosses. It was originally scheduled to run until the end of February.

Earlier in the day, Katie was spotted taking an early morning stroll with her daughter Suri.

FYI: Katie is carrying a Dolce&Gabbana Miss Sicily Soft Handbag.

    Geeza Louisa Jared how much did you get paid to shill her and this play? You have pushed the play in almost every thread! Obviously not enough people were moved to see it. Although the play itself got bad reviews so did Katie! Why are you pushing mediocrity on us all?

    No JJ, we didn’t see the play. No one did. That’s the point.

    If they put Suri in a play it would sell out every night. She’s the draw. Katie still picks her up because she wants to be in Suri’s shot.

    Just happy she saved her daughter Suri from the craziness of Scientology. good job Katie !!!

  • Rachel

    No,i didn’t see it,and not even for free i’d see Katie acting in movies or plays.She’s a mediocre actress and should find a real job,she has no talent to be an actress.Now that the floppy play is over,we’ll see her new show:her staged photo ops with Suri.

  • Question

    “I really like her philosophy that makeup makes you feel beautiful,” Katie says. “I’ve always been a fan of her makeup, because it’s so easy to apply. Her color palettes aren’t extreme, so when I first started wearing makeup it felt comfortable and I didn’t feel like I had too much on, which can happen.”
    .
    So why does she leave her house looking like krapp most days?

    @annie: Those who earned a College Degree went to see Dead Accounts, so I don’t want to hear anymore the World laughing at us that we are not educated people … and here is the proof the educated people went to see the play until yesterday, so thank you New York; and those who are High School dropouts went to see Jack Reacher, good for Tom …that’s kinda to deep for KFLOP to get it!

    @OCTAVIAN
    I love Katie, but we saw Jack Reacher on the weekend, and it was one good movie. My husband in not a TC fan as such, take him or leave him type thing, we both liked it ,although I spent the whole movie trying to figure him out.
    But even tho I don’t paticularly care much for him anymore, it was a good movie, can’t take that away from him.
    He does look older in the movie than he does in pics, but he is an attractive looking man, can’t lie.

    @Mels: Than next performance should be coming out in a …week. Since single working moms “work”. Seriously, she has been out there to long to fold up camp, so I’m hoping for an “off” broadway show to show that she IS serious. 1st – so many blog saying she goes off on tangents, so stay on track. 2nd – way too many blogs about her lack of presence, so what better way to hone that skill than on stage. 3rd – or in conclusion, now that she knows what she needs to work on, does she do it?? Or lke Amy Irving, rely on Suri The Meal Ticket?

  • Sincerely concerned

    For all those Katie haters, does anyone NOTiCE what kind of crap some A-listers have been putting out there. Adam Sandler, (Katie probably felt like she was on a Cedar Point roller coaster hanging on working next to that dim wit), Sean Penn, YES Meryl Streep!, Robt. Dinero. My point is keep perspective. She has 6 yrs. she’s lost so let’s just see…

    @K-FLOP not attending NYFW?:

    I think much of their last show went to the sale bins.

    Katie should pick one “thing” and work at it. Designing fashion is a full-time job. Jessica Simpson, Gwen Stefani, and Victoria Beckham for instance oversee their collections, but have talented people working for them both from the first concept to marketing. Katie and Jeanie do the designing themselves as I understand it and pick the fabrics, do the marketing etc. Plus Katie then spreads herself way too thin trying to be a stage actress, a movie star, a singer, a dancer and whatever. If she wants to dance–then get the best teachers around and devote 8 hours a day to it, however, she is 34 and most dancers have peaked by then. If she wants to sing, then get rid of everything else and again get the best teachers around and devote herself to it. Same goes for acting. Pick one and devote yourself to it. You are 34 Katie and in a few years Hollywood will consider you old. Ask any actress as they approach 40 what happens to the roles, the parts, the opportunities…they start drying up.

  • Octavian

    @annie: Dear Annie I saw most of Tom’s movies and Far and Away impressed me the most, but the way he is changing the wives like we change the cars disgusts me. It will always be out there a more beautiful person than our spouses…and the search for more beautiful people will never end…until we get older and older and no one gives a damn about us. Look at Brad and Angelina they love and respect each other for so many and they are not even married, good for them .

    After Katie filed for divorce it took less than two months for them to divorce, and no judge in the US would divorce them without knowing that they were separated for at least six months, and it was Tom who left Katie for more than 6 months and refused to see her. Katie did not have any choice, what would you do if your husband would go away for more than six months disrespecting you? I was a great fan of Tom and I thought that he could be like the king Edward VIII of England who abdicate his throne to marry an American lady, and Tom would abdicate his Scientology throne to save his marriage, but he did not do it. We are sick and tired of Stars like Tom Cruise, Shirley MacLaine, Angus T Jones who promote their religious and spiritual views allover and ask us to join them, and I know that there are 100 % lies. Shirley MacLaine sold more than 20,000,000 copies of her Out on a Limb book and I paid about $30 for my copy and I watched her movie too, and I changed my Christian views with the New Age one (another lie)…. until I realized that her “genuine” OBE was nothing more than a banal Lucid Dreaming and now I know that everything happened only inside her brain and no soul traveled to the Moon like she described it in her biographical book and movie, nothing paranormal happened there…. you know by the Moon she saw a huge beautiful spiral galaxy, and that was not possible without us to see it from Earth too; the Moon is very close to Earth and the galaxies too far away, and her astronomers friends should have told her that, only the dreams or the lucid dreams can make us fly or bring galaxies closer to us, just watch this 3 minutes video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjBbLGvnl3E&feature=relmfu) …. Her experience made me believe that Moses had a similar Lucid dream like Shirley when he saw the burning bush and the finger of God writing the commandments, or Jesus when he talked in the desert with Satan (according to the Bible). I had the so called OBEs, for instance once I saw the blue sky opening like a huge window allowing me to see what was hidden beyond it, other time I was beamed up to a spaceship through a tunnel with red walls like lava, other times I saw a few elves waving their hands to me, and no matter how overwhelming, 3D and lifelike were my experiences now I know that everything happened only inside my brain, like in a dream, because I induced myself into a delta state of mind meditating.

    Annie I’m sorry but I cannot enjoy the movies of a man who is on the top of a nonsense cult who separated so many families and others lost their homes because the cult’s ideology…and that’s indecent and I’m not going to be a part of it and support an actor no matter how talented and charming he is… On the web there are so many tragic stories of ex scientologists and though you will never read about Katie’s tragic story you should feel compassion for her, and there are not enough diamonds in the World to cover that tragedy ! Actually Katie is a Hero and Tom should be proud of her, and if Tom would have the guts to appreciate her, give up his Scientology throne and re-merry her then I would wipe out the past and I would happily jump on my couch before I’ll go to his movies again and review the oldier. The last movie I saw with Tom was MI Ghost Protocol… and that will be the last one unless he will reconsider! My last movie with Katie was The Romantics…and she impressed me as much as Tom in MI ghost protocol. If Tom feels the need to worship someone then he should forget about Scientology and “worship” Stephen Hawking, the “father” of the Black Holes, because the hard work of our scientists we live a decent life.

  • Octavian

    @geeza louisa: @omg: There are people who do not need 8 hours every day to practice singing, dancing, acting or do other things and Katie is one of them. For instance Katie can memorize a poem in a few moments and you probably need a few days or more . Hawking can memorize the Theory of Relativity in less than an hour and you….never! Katie might memorize the Theory of Relativity in a few days and she might understand it if she has the right teacher….if this is what she wants. Designing fashion is not necessary a full-time job, depends on how creative and fast you are … Salieri was a full-time composer all his life (he died at the age of 72) and his work was not even close to Mozart’s work who died at the age of 35. I know that Katie wears whatever she designs and she looks awesome, she is very creative and I like it… I couldn’t afford to buy for my wife any of her very expensive cloths though I work in an Engineering department, I have other responsibilities for instance to send on a monthly base a check to my mom and my wife’s mom in Europe to beautify their lives as much as I can…and I do this from ancient times … the Eurozone hits new record high 11.8 unemployment! I can bet that Katie will always have in the future opportunities and big parts…some people are born to be bigger than the life, look at Shirley MacLaine at her age (already older than Salieri) she still gets great parts, and I saw all her movies…well almost and her movie Out on a Limb changed my life…Upside Down ha, ha, ha

    @Octavian:

    I’m sorry Octavian, but Katie has excelled at nothing she has tried to do since marrying Tom. Her fashion line, her singing, her dancing, her stage performances, her movie roles–all range from below average to average. About the only thing she has “excelled” at has been modeling and even that when you look at the photos that weren’t used – seems to make one think she needs a lot of coaching. I’m not saying she has to do one thing, but a dancer that excels at what they do practices 8 hours a day–ask a ballet dancer, a show dancer. And singing, ask anyone who is a professional (opera, stage) singer and they will tell you they practice hours to get ‘it’ right. Ask fashion designers like those that work with Gucci, Chanel, Dior–who hire the top of the line–and it is a FULL-TIME job, not something you drop in and supervise every once ‘n awhile. The H/Y collection is uninspired and not well thought out. There are pics of another actress wearing that lace creation where the lace has torn. There are pics of Katie with poor hemlines. Pretty bad when these pieces cost a fortune. And acting…Katie has not had a successful film since Batman has she? And her performances have gotten mediocre reviews to average reviews. I don’t believe I remember any which gush about her performance ala say Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings and Hunger Games.
    All I’m saying is that Katie does show a modicum of talent in acting and she should enhance it by studying her craft, learning from top acting coaches etc. instead of diluting herself with all of these projects, none of which she is doing well. And you know it doesn’t matter how fast you can memorize a poem (I know I can do it quickly like Katie also) that doesn’t translate into acting skills (I have none). So all of the smarts, memorization talent etc. is not going to make Katie an above average actress. Only hard work is going to do that and she is spread too thin and doesn’t seem to want to put the effort into what is needed to make her the best SHE can be. She will never be a great actress kuje Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, or Helen Mirran. She probably won’t ever be an excellent actress like Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Kate Winslet. And may not ever reach “very good” with her limited talent. But she can probably be above average. And with the right parts to fit her skill set she can turn things around. Unfortunately, and Katie has even said this, she has made poor choices in choosing her roles. If she keeps up with the poor choices and spreading herself too thin she is going to fade into obscurity.

    @ Octavian
    I don’t care much for Tom, I mean to be honest it was because of Katie, I took an interest, and as a result of that , you could say I educated myself on Tom, and NK, and Scientology, because before that , and of course I knew them, and their movies, didn’t have too much interest in what they were up to, or who they were seeing, or doing. More into DC.
    I have always said , from the beginning , that I just don’t trust Tom, never have. He lies, a lot. He was carrying on, about how happy he is, from the minute he met Katie, and she on the other hand was preparing for a divorce. You certainly got the impression they were not sleeping togther, if he didn’t know , as her husband what she was up to in the middle of night, he could hear her, he didn’t even know she was writing a movie script. If the marriage was totally broken down, 6 months before Katie filed for divorce, around the time then, of MI, around the end of 2011.
    But I think there is more to their divorce, than just Scie, Katie seemed angry, her actions seemed angry towards him.
    I don’t know about anyone else, but the quickness her wedding ring came off,she didn’t even keep it on , for appearances, if nothing else, probably we’ll never know, but there’s more to it.
    Maybe, he even strayed , and she found out, maybe those pics with the topless girls for Rock of Ages, finished it off for her.
    Also she threw little comments as well, things like ”looking forward to new adventures with my daughter”.
    Tom is a very ”precise” man, she got the make of his plane wrong, one day and he corrected her, but you got the impression in the interview, that he corrected her often.
    From the end of 2011 till March 2013, he will have had 4 movies out, and these movies have taken months to make.
    And I think, actually I’m sure that whatever went down with that Naz girl was true, if he could do and say those things to her, then why not his wife.
    Obviously, him and Katie were not on the same page, not even with Suri’s upbringing.
    He was going on, about her Scie education before she was even born. Suri really seems like a different child, she dresses differently, no more blanket….well except for the paps.
    She goes to school, she has little friends, her hair is always tidy now.
    Just like weeks before he left NK, he said all these wonerful things , renewed their vows, then he was gone, like the wind.
    I have my doubts about Scientolgy being the reason, more like Pen Cruise, but anyway
    And you are right , he never respected her, and on what I have seen, was never there for her, on heaps of occasions.
    In an interview, for Jack and Jill, Adam Sandler said to Katie”you’re going to I ndia soon”, TC was going to be there for MI premiere, she said she was going but she never went.
    I’m sorry, they arn’t together, because of Suri.
    She goes to school now, and having all these things written, and disected about her fathers life out there, it’s not right for a little girl, all some kid has to do is overhear a conversation, about TC and they say something hurtful to her, I think it’s really sad, the whole lot of it.
    Even if he leaves Scie, which I actually believe he will , slowly slowly, doubt they will get back together.
    Sorry , I’ve jumped all over the place, in writing things.
    Really enjoyed Jack Reacher, as much as I don’t like certain things about him, I quite like his movies, didn’t see Rock of Ages, because I quite like thrillers.

    @geeza louisa: Did you see Katie in Arthur Miller’s All my Sons on Broadway and did you see her recently in Theresa Rebeck’s Dead Accounts so you can have your own opinion? I live far away from New-York and actually I was there only one time in the 90′s just to fulfill one of my dreams since I was a teen. I’d read the comments of many people who watched Dead Accounts, and one guy said that when he watched Katie on stage he was so immersed with his mind that he saw only Lorna, and he never thought a moment that she was Katie Holmes, and then he concluded maybe that was the greatest elegy he could give to an awesome actress. Sunday after her last show, hundreds and hundreds of people gathered by the Music Box Theater to show their love and respect to Katie and actually the police urged the cast to use the back door, and I am not sure if Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, or Helen Mirran experienced ever so much love from their fans.
    I did not watch Mirren in The Queen mostly because I am a Beatles fan and Lennon left England and he returned his MBE to the Queen, also the king Edward abdicated his throne to marry an American lady, and too bad Tom Cruise didn’t have the guts to abdicate his Scientology throne to save his marriage, I would worship him until the end of my time :) …it looks like he is not like Lennon or king Edward VIII :( Anyway from all those movie stars you mentioned I definitely like Katie the most, she is talented, beautiful and she is a classy lady. You know, a movies star has to look like Aphrodite and from all the stars you mentioned she resemble the most her. Katie impressed me by far more in The Romantics than Maryl in The Devil wears Prada… sorry to disappoint you…

  • annie

    @geeza louisa
    There are some things that you say, that I agree with you.
    But she dances because she likes it, not to make a career out of it.
    She sings because like the dancing, the occasion came up and she sang , it’s not her pofession.
    But her decision making sucks…….big time!
    Ok, here goes….I’ve said it before, but astrology really interests me, for years.
    If Katie is to succeed, and you might find this strange now , what I’m going to say, but she has to come out, of herself. she has to come out into the open, take charge, of herself, confidence in herself, to deliver the goods,she has what it takes, in spades, but she doesn’t grab it, she doesn’t run with it.
    I’ve seen Miranda Kerr, in David Jones, she’s not so great looking , honestly, but I bet Dj’s said to her that she has to be spot on all the time, she is representing them, knows how to sell herself.
    I’ve seen Elle Macpherson, again no big deal, bad skin, but she knows how to sell herself.
    Katie lacks this, for me, maybe the actress side of her , can get away with” being natural” but the model and designer side, clash with this type of thinking.
    She wants to prove herself, so she accepts unglamorous roles, when she has a beautiful face, much more so than other actresses, beautiful hair, and maybe not a perfect figure, but a nice figure, nonetheless…use it.
    Play the roles you’re best suited to , dramatic, complicated, not comedic
    This is what Katie needs, somebody to say to her, Katie you are representing us, we expect this and this from you
    I don’t know if you have seen the videos for Ann Taylor, or the videos for H Stern, these are not photoshopped pics, they are beyond stunning
    She’s very creative, she has everything going for her to reach the top, she holds herself back.
    This might sound silly to you, but her Moon and Jupiter are hidden in her 12th house, she has to bring them out, to start creating her own luck, it’s there waiting for her, she just doesn’t grab it, she needs to do her homework, it’s not going to fall in her lap by any stretch.
    Tom Cruise, has a very prominent Moon , Jupiter, Sun Venus, it’s up high in his horoscope, same with Nicole K, hers are prominent, out there so to speak, Katie has all this, but she has to work to bring it out, and until she does, she’s not going to succeed, jack of all trades , master of none.
    I do realise this probably sounds beyond crazy to you, but not to me.
    Really she should go and see a good astrologer, and a good stylist, not a friend, work together with a top stylist, to make the most of her attributes, and she will succeed ,big time……until then.
    She’s letting herself down, a shame because she’s got ” IT ”, a lot of IT but doesn’t use it to full effect, and it’s a shame.
    Anyway don’t think me too crazy, but you would be surprised. For me astrology is a hobby, but you can tell so much.

    On daily mail , article about watching a court case… Hmmm maybe I’ll be a lawyer.

    @annie: In response to her to not using IT… I meant, she woke up this morning and thought,,, “Hmmmm, maybe I’!! Be a lawyer”

  • Sincerely concerned

    @geeza louisa: I could not agree more!!!!! And in some way or another All these bloggers are saying the same thing. Tom was a drag on her career. If she doesn’t USE it to learn from and Buckel down on what she started with,,, melodramatic acting, she will loose herself. I think of some of the things she did with Tom and I think, “you poor thing”. That Lola dance, what a nightmare, Mad Money and Jack and Jill. She has no comedic experience, why the he double hockey sticks would her husband do that??? He had NO RESPECT for her as an actress, that is for sure!!

    The only helpful advise I wish I could tell her is loose that catholic guilt and just for SPITE, show that MFer what you got got. Just pick one thing, (serious/melodramatic acting) and hone it!!!

    @Something Ain’t Right: You MUST not have kids… When I think of the things my 6 – 10 y/0′s went into tailspin about.., I cringe…

  • geeza louisa

    @Octavian:

    I saw her in AMS and it was a cringe worthy experience to see her fumbling thru the role along side of the great John Lithgow and Diane Weist. Friends in NYC saw her in DA and said she was awful. We all go to NYC/Broadway plays at least a dozen times a year. Katie does not have what it takes to be a BROADWAY actress. She could possibly do off off Broadway–and that is where she should have honed her skills. Her projection is not good. She doesn’t have the stage presence that so many of the very talented actors have that do Broadway.

    She appeared to have found her niche with DC and the small screen. She should stay there in my opinion. Her skills and talent are not big screen applicable. There is nothing wrong with being a television actor. There are many that make a living at it and a good living at that. A few of them even know their limitations unlike David Caruso who dropped out of NYPD Blue because he felt he was a big screen actor and failed only to come back to CSI:Miami. Katie is good on the small screen for many reasons. Playing to your strengths and then occasionally going outside your comfort box is fine. Constantly failing has to be a drag on her don’t you think? And now it comes out H/Y is not going to be showing in the winter fashion shows in NYC. Gee that really shows commitment. Actually her line is not doing well. So another failure.

    I do have to admit Katie has failed at almost everything since marrying Tom, but she gets right back up and tries again. That has to show either a very narcissistic personality or someone who has a lot of gumption. She doesn’t seem like a narcissist to me, so I give her a ten for gumption.

  • geeza louisa

    @annie:

    Annie while I appreciate you are her number one fan, lets be realistic here. She has a a string of box office failures. Not just failures, but absolute bottom of the barrel failures when it comes to producing revenue, return on the investment and positive vibes for her. Now that Tom will no longer bail her out financially (i.e. provide funding, be collateral), what studio wants to take a chance on someone so into the minuses and with such poor averages (some of the lowest in the industry for someone with her name recognition)?

    And Annie if you were a producer or a financial backer for film would you, after looking at Katie’s stats–average per film (around $28k or mil –extremely low), how much the films have earned that she has starred in, produced? You would not. You’d look at it as throwing good money after bad.

    She said in some interview that she knew being married to Tom gave her opportunities to try different things and she took advantage of those opportunities. Nothing wrong with that. But there is such a thing of trying to hard, trying to much and doing none of it well.

    Katie, in my opinion, is a good model. She isn’t a natural one as you can often tell by outtakes, but with work she is a good one. She certainly seems to lack the intuitive skills when it comes to posing on the red carpet and you can see that in some of the modeling film/outtakes. But this is generally still work and photographers can work with it.

    I don’t care for Tom. I’ve heard from a friend who met him when he was doing PR at TV station she worked at that he was very controlling about the entire visit. Nothing was left to chance. I’ve heard others say he is very controlling both in business and personal relationships.

    However, if you search “Katie Holmes” on JJ and start with the first time he featured her with Tom (since JJ loves KH there is a really good photographic record of their time together) you can see she is very very much in love with him. She absolutely glows and as you go thru the pictures–well it is sad really for her–you can see that glow diminish until it is just a caricature of any real feeling for him. I don’t believe Tom ever deep down really loved her. I think the person he loved most (aside from himself and the cult) was Kidman. You look at ten years of pictures and there was a quiet glow within him for her. I realize they had problems, but according to Kidman he was unwilling to do any type of counseling. And according to Andrew Morton when Tom decides something that is it. He doesn’t second guess, doesn’t look back. But I have a feeling within the last decade or so since he so hurtfully and carelessly let Kidman go he has had some private regrets. I think Kidman is far happier with Urban and the life she has now.

    And I think Katie did the right thing by dumping Tom and getting Suri out of the cult. I think she is smart and looked at what the cult and Tom did with Kidman and her kids and she learned from it. I think she saw how Tom hired that PI in jail for wire tapping to go after Kidman, I think she saw how all the household staff reported back to the Cult about everything went on in the house and what was said etc., and mapped out a plan of action with her dad to leave. It obviously worked.

    However, having smarts doesn’t mean having talent. Having talent doesn’t mean being talented in everything. Having talent doesn’t mean you don’t get better with the skills and talent by hopping from one thing to the other.

    Katie has above average talent and below average smarts when it comes to PR/marketing herself. If she doesn’t want to play the Hollywood game, then she needs to work on honing her skills and the talent she does have to be the best she can be. She doesn’t appear to do this. If I was her PR/Marketing/Manager person I’d tell her do go back to TV and get a role that suits and do a movie now and then along with some modeling and hire someone to front her fashion line. Katie is 34. She doesn’t have much time left in Hollywood. We have a cadre of wonderful older actresses that will tell you that getting parts as you age is more and more difficult. And getting good parts is really hard because producers prefer to hire younger and younger even tho it makes no sense with regards to the age the part should be.

    So it will be interesting astrology or no to see where Holmes goes after the DA debacle.

    @annie:
    You did not jump all over the place, you spoke your mind and I appreciate that. Katie said she was tired of Tom and other people telling her what to do and how to do it. K-FLOP wrote here “Holmes’ confidential, anonymously filed paperwork cited “irreconcilable differences” and stated the union broke down six months ago — a prerequisite to using New York’s new no-fault law.” So it is not like it happened suddenly and perversely on Tom’s B-day, the roots are way deeper. In my mind and heart Katie is a classy lady and you could be right she got hurt about whatever went down with that Naz girl… Those movie stars are so different than the rest of us, Schwarzenegger had affairs with his maid, Sienna Miller split Jude Law because he was unfaithful, on the other hand Brad and Angelina are not married and love each other for so long time… Shirley MacLaine had sex with three different people in the same day (she said that on Oprah’s show) though she did not say if it was a foursome, or she had one for breakfast, another one for lunch and the last one for dinner… Or it was after she had that OBE by the Moon and enjoyed from there the sightseeing of that huge Spiral Galaxy -from her Out on a Limb :) :) :) :)

    “….Katie has above average talent and below average smarts when it comes to PR/marketing herself”. No, no, no I do not agree with that sorry, Katie is by far more than that, she is way above an average actress, and Sunday after her last Dead Accounts show hundreds of fans were waiting for her outside to have a glimpse of her, and the NYPD asked her and her crew to use the back door to be on the safe side.
    About marketing herself there are others who take care of that, for instance she fired her scientologist manager, agent, and publicist when she filed for divorce. Seven years prior Katie fired her managers because Tom told her so, and they were replaced by Tom’s people… so it was not Katie’s fault she did not make as much money as you would want to, she is an hardworking awesome actress. Before Katie met Tom she earned by far more money because her awesome managers she was told to fire.
    Scientology claims that there are approximately 8 million Scientologists, world-wide so if they all went to Jack Reacher (and all the other movies… maybe the church pushed them) to support Tom then you got more than $100 millions right there. How many Scientologists went to Dead Accounts… NONE… I’m sure they were told so?

    I appreciate like Annie that you like Katie. But having hundreds outside the stage door is not indicative of talent. It is indicative of being a “movie star.” The Kardashians have hundreds and thousands of screaming fans, but would you honestly say they have talent? Meryl Streep has talent, but I bet she rarely has crowds trying to get to her. Katie has not done anything in terms of acting since Pieces of April. She has been awkward to awful in almost everything she has done. After All My Sons I could not bear to see her in another play. She was absolutely the worst in the cast and one of the worst “Broadway” actresses I’ve ever seen. And that includes a dismal performance by Amanda Peet in one of my fave plays Barefoot in the Park. Katie could not project well, she was very erratic in how she performed thru the night and her acting was down right cringe-worthy. As I said earlier a friend that saw her in DA said she hadn’t improved much. She needs to play to her strengths, unfortunately she doesn’t want to.

    @geeza louisa:
    Yeah right, Meryl Streep has talent because she performed in “Defending Your Life” and because the movie has strong Scientology views about Life after Death (ha, ha, ha), and because Shirley MacLaine performed in that movie too? Just a few years before Shirley released her biographical movie and book Out on a Limb and told the World about her Out of Body experience by the Moon and how she contemplated that huge Spiral Galaxy from there, Ha, Ha, Ha (huge galaxies by the moon ha, ha, ha what a crap). Because this kind of crap the church of Scientology is Tax Exempt in the States, shame, shame, shame… but not in England, because England has Stephen Hawking, and Tony Blair told Tom Cruise in the past never to come again and lobby in England for Tax-Exemption. Meryl and Tom want fame and they are open to mislead you if they know that they can make big bucks. How can you even compare Streep’s Defending your Life with Katie’s last movie The Romantics, Katie’s movie brought tears, and happiness in me and when the DVD was available I run to buy it! I like all kind of movies, comedies, drama and yes action movies too that’s why I watched all the Mission Impossible (I love those movies because Tom did not use the guns…wow I gave him +A for that… and not only because of that…) and I stopped right there no Jack Reacher for me…he sucks like a human being in the real life and he promotes lies and defeat, and by the why he came in my dream last night, I’m not kidding you, he was kinda nervous especially that I told him in face to change his behavior… Wake up America, England laughs at us, the World laughs at us that the leader of the Scientology Church, a High School Dropout convinced our government that it is right his church to be tax-free, now when America needs more than ever money to pay its debts and we need to increase our taxes. It is something very wrong with us, we adore stars that perform in life after death kind of movies, and we ignore those who are trying to bring love, compassion, unity like Katie in one of her last movie The Romantics. Katie’s movies are meaningful, Wake up America!

    @geeza louisa:
    I am not sure if the story with your friend who saw Dead Accounts is true but here is the comment of a person who really saw the show: “… I really enjoyed the chemistry between the two leads. Norbert is a seminal Broadway performer and Katie held her own against him. I honestly didn’t think I was watching Katie Holmes. I felt I was watching Lorna. That is probably the biggest compliment I can give to Katie on her performance…. ” and if you want to read the whole AmericanDreamer’ s comment then here is the link… of course there is another comment (donnaaron78 ) that says that Ms Holmes was unconvincing as a Midwestern woman http://entertainment.time.com/2012/12/04/katie-holmes-trapped-on-broadway/ and remember the enormous stress Katie had with her divorce and the months and months before that when Tom left her for good.
    You should google to see who is the French Marianne, and in my mind and heart Katie is the American Marianne, and she should be our symbol. We can’t become free from superstitions and intellectual insincerity that puts constrains to human’s evolution for thousands of years if we don’t have the guts to say it out loud “That’s Enough” with the barbaric behavior of some cults and the nonsense of pledging our souls for the next billion of years to a cult, enough with those stories that promise OBEs to the Moon surrounded by huge galaxies, enough with the pseudoscience. The people will judge us in the future for everything we say , do and write now, and unfortunately they won’t remember Tom as one of the finest movie star ever, they will remember him as the man who pledged his soul for the next billion years to scientology ?!?!?!? The future generation won’t remember Shirley MacLaine as one of the finest American movie star ever, they will remember her as the “soul” who traveled to the Moon and enjoyed the sightseeing of a huge Spiral Galaxy by the Moon ?!?!?! The future generation will remember Katie Holmes as one of the finest American Star that was also synonym with the American Marianne. Now, please do not get me wrong, if it wasn’t for Out on a Limb story that opened my eyes about everything, religion, new age, cults etc I would still live the big lie until the end of my time, so I forgive Shirley MacLaine and actually thank her… and continue to love her as the hot American Movie star who made the Russian president Khrushchev lose his control. I guess we could get the quintessence from each creed, religion and add it to our psychology books in the Elementary School, High School and College to help us become better people, better citizens, I mean Tom said that the scientology helped him overcome his early-years dyslexia… this is good and we all want to learn that at schools. Christianity thought us to love each other, the New Age helped us with the self hypnosis and Buddhism told us that though we all think that everything we do and think it is about us…actually it is not…

    I think if Tom would change the direction and if he would re-marry Katie he could even get elected as the President of the United States in the future, I mean he is smart, fast learner, hardworking…actually workaholic, he is a doer and I heard he is altruistic too, he could be one of the greatest example to the new generation. He could even take college Web courses via the University of Phoenix or others and graduate in no time (Ronald Reagan enrolled at Eureka College in Illinois where he played football and made average grades…)! If the actor Ronald Reagan changed America when he became President, and if the actor Arnold Schwarzenegger (he earned a BA by correspondence from the University of Wisconsin–Superior ) was governor for so many years, then Tom as the President of the United States could change the World, and I’m sure he would donate his salary to charities…. and Katie would be the First Lady, and Paul McCartney would be again invited to the White House :) EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE :) Anyway, there is nothing else I could write without being redundant.
