Katie Holmes headed to Broadway
Bound for fall revival of Arthur Miller's 'All My Sons'NEW YORK -- Katie Holmes is ready to make her Broadway debut.
The "Dawson's Creek" star and wife of Tom Cruise, who most recently starred in this year's "Mad Money" alongside Diane Keaton and Queen Latifah, will hit the stage in a revival of Arthur Miller's "All My Sons" this fall.
Fellow castmembers include John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest and Patrick Wilson. Exact dates and theater will be announced, producer Eric Falkenstein said Monday.
The play, first seen on Broadway in 1947, was Miller's first Broadway hit. It 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.
Simon McBurney will direct "All My Sons," which was revived on Broadway in 1987 and was last seen in New York 10 years later in a Roundabout Theatre Company production off-Broadway.
