Katie Holmes’ Broadway debut is set for September 18, The Associated Press informs. She is to begin preview performances in a revival of Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons,” producer Eric Falkenstein announced Tuesday.
The production, which also stars John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest and Patrick Wilson, officially opens October 16 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre for a limited engagement through January 11.
“All My Sons” concerns businessman Joe Keller (Lithgow) whose factory supplied defective cylinder parts to the military, resulting in the deaths of 21 pilots during World War II. Yet it was his business partner who went to jail for the mistake.
Wiest will play Keller’s wife; Wilson, his idealistic son; and Holmes, the son’s fiancee and daughter of Keller’s disgraced partner. The director is Simon McBurney.
OK, it’s been called “Broadway’s worst kept secret,” but Playbill confirms that Katie Holmes is going to be starring in the Arthur Miller play (for which he also garnered a Tony Award). What I find a little dismaying is that the headlines are all talking about Ms. Holmes – and it’s her debut. She may not be good. There’s no shame in not being good at stage acting.But shouldn’t the real news be the rest of the cast? John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest, Patrick Wilson, costumes and sets by Tom Pye, and directed by Simon McBurney – between them all they could furnish an entire house with Tony’s and Obie’s. I think it’s a real tribute to their dedication to the theatre that instead of going for the easy mega hit they’re devoting their time to a straight play and keeping the genre alive.
Hey guys, I found some photos and videos of the movie Watchmen starring Patrick Wilson and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. You can view them <a href=”http://community.livejournal.com/ohnotheydidnt/22194905.html”>here</A> right now. I’ll add them to the gallery later tonight if I have time.
