“The laughs don’t stop!” – The Wall Street Journal


Katie Holmes makes her much awaited Broadway return alongside Norbert Leo Butz (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) in Dead Accounts, a comedy written by Theresa Rebeck (the creator of “Smash”) and directed by three-time Tony winner Jack O’Brien (The Coast of Utopia).

The unexpected return of Jack (Butz) throws his family into a frenzy, and his sister Lorna (Holmes) needs answers. Is he coming home or running away? Where is his wife everyone hates? And how did he get all that money? Theresa Rebeck’s new family comedy tackles the timely issues of corporate greed, small town values, and whether or not your family will always welcome you back…with no questions asked.


“Katie Holmes is absolutely delightful.” – Fox 5 News

“Norbert Leo Butz is a comic force of nature!” – The Hollywood Reporter
