I would imagine that if it weren’t for the constant swarm of paparazzi that surrounds Katie Holmes everywhere she goes, she’d get a high five from every single person that recognized her. You could see that, right? Immediately after she filed for divorce from ol’ cray-cray Tom, her life seemed to get unspeakably better, and it really is heartwarming to watch.
And here’s another example of how things keep getting better for Katie: she just landed a role on Broadway!
Get ready to see a lot more of Katie Holmesin New York City.
The actress, 33, is returning to Broadway this fall in the dark comedy Dead Accounts, it was announced Thursday.
She made her Broadway debut in 2008 in the revival of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons alongside John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest and Patrick Wilson.
In the new show, Holmes will play Lorna, a woman looking for answers about her brother’s surprising return home. Additional casting news has yet to be released. The show, to be directed by Jack O’Brien, will play at the Music Box Theatre.
In the three weeks since her surprise split from Tom Cruise, Holmes has become a popular tourist (and local) attraction in the Big Apple.
Now, she’ll become even more of a Manhattan mainstay – and keep an eye out for Suri on opening night!
I’m so happy for Katie that I’m putting aside my frustration that yet another bad actor just got a big acting job. And just in case you don’t know me, that means that I’m really, really happy for her.
