KATIE D.O.A. ON B’WAY
KATIE HOLMES show DEAD ACCOUNTS is dead – literally.
Katie’s first project since splitting from Tommy Scientolo earlier this year -- will shutter January 6 after a mere 27 previews and 44 performances, paltry by standards by which The Great White Way accrues revenues.
Dead, which opened November 29 at the Music Box Theatre to less-than-stellar reviews, will close seven weeks ahead of schedule, RadarOnline.com reported.
"I am extremely proud of this production and the cast," producer Jeffrey Finn said in a statement Thursday.
"Theresa Rebeck and Jack O'Brien have created an inspiring and hilarious new play and we are all sad to see Dead Accounts end on Broadway.
"I look forward to working with this remarkably talented cast and creative team again very soon."
Katie, 34, who got fair to middling reviews from crix for her performance in the production, made her Broadway debut in 2008 in Arthur Miller's All My Sons in a small but pivotal role.
“Pivotal” because of her supposed marquee value.
“Small” because the play was named “All My SONS”.
