Katie Holmes has scored her first acting gig since announcing her divorce from Tom Cruise. The former "Dawson's Creek" actress will appear in a Broadway play titled "Dead Accounts" as a woman in her 30s, who is stuck living with her parents in Cincinnati.
A conflict arises when a brother of Holmes' character comes home with a lot of money and a missing wife, upsetting the delicate balance in the house. The show will open at the Music Box Theatre in New York, but no opening date and other cast members are announced just yet.
Theresa Rebeck serves as a playwright, while Tony Award winner Jack O'Brien is slated to direct. "It's beyond cool, honestly. The whole team is lively as hell. I am positively tingling with delight," Rebeck tells The Wrap.
"Dead Accounts" will mark Holmes' return to the Broadway since she made her debut in 2008 through "All My Sons". The 33-year-old actress was previously reported to star in a movie called "Molly" which she wrote and produced, but the project has been on hold. The mother of Suri Cruise additionally has filmed her guest stint on reality series "Project Runway: All Stars".
