So You Think You Can Dance guest star, Katie Holmes, has returned to Broadway in the dark comedy, “Dead Accounts.” And though she may not be making sweet music with a new man in real life, Katie didn’t hesitate to share a passionate embrace and lock lips with costar, Josh Hamilton onstage for the show’s preview on Monday.
According to E! News, this role marks Katie’s first acting appearance since splitting with former husband, Tom Cruise and her first time back on Broadway since 2008 for the debut of Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons.”
Holmes didn’t fail to please the audience at Monday’s preview for “Dead Accounts” garnering applause on several occasions according to the Los Angeles Times. Once specifically, when her onstage phone broke in the middle of a scene, Holmes kept the show going by incorporating a mishap into the performance when other actors may have fumbled.
The play “Dead Accounts” was written by “Smash” creator, Theresa Rebeck and directed by Jack O’Brien. Stars featured in the play include “Norbert Leo Butz as a wealthy prodigal son named Jack who heads back to his family in Ohio. Holmes plays his skeptical sister, Lorna, who awaits his return in Cincinnati. Jayne Houdyshell plays their mom, and Judy Greer who’s making her Broadway debut, plays Jack’s wife.” And Josh Hamilton plays Phil.
According to Daily News, Holmes has a not so secret admirer on set. Sources close to Holmes say her costar, Josh Hamilton, 43 is crushing on Holmes in real life and is making it quite clear despite the fact that’s he’s married to producer Lily Thorne. “He’s always nearby, in her face, during lunch, [and during] breaks,” the source said.
The onstage lip-lock between the two probably isn’t helping matters much. However, Holmes seems to pay no mind to Hamilton’s obvious affections. “She’s been nice [and] polite, but ultimately uninterested in a romantic relationship with him,” the source said. “She doesn’t want any stress at rehearsals or on the stage, so she has yet to unequivocally tell him to back off.” And adds Holmes is “very aware to avoid any bad P.R. and any gossip in the often catty behind-the-scenes Broadway world.”
“Dead Accounts” officially opens on November 29 at the Music Box Theatre.
