Katie Holmes’ return to Broadway with Dead Accounts will be cut short.
Producers of Dead Accounts have announced that the show will be cut seven weeks early following bad reviews and poor ticket sales, Zap2It reports.
Directed by Jack O’Brien, the Broadway show will have played 27 previews and 44 regular performances when it ends in January, New York Times reports. According to the report, the show opened to mixed-to-poor reviews, with Stage Grade giving the show a “D+.”
The Times notes that the poor ticket sales averaged just under 25% of its potential gross in the week of Dec. 23.
Dead Accounts starred Holmes, Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz, Judy Greer and Josh Hamilton. The play was written by Theresa Rebeck, whose last play Seminar was closed after 191 performances.
Some reviews praised Holmes, who has previously starred in Arthur Miller’s All My Sons. The final performance of Dead Accounts can be seen Jan. 6.
