Is Katie Holmes
preparing to swap playdates for the Great White Way? Britain's Daily Mail
newspaper reports that she's in talks for a role on Broadway.
Respected showbiz writer Baz Bamigboye reports that Holmes is "in final negotiations" to make her professional stage debut in a revival of All My Sons
, Arthur Miller's heartbreaking, post-World War II family drama.
While the Mail
reports the actress has committed to participating in a workshop of the play in May, a rep for Holmes tells PEOPLE that she is in discussions but also says, "nothing is set."
If she does take the role, Holmes would play a woman who visits the family of her former lover, a missing pilot. It would be her first play since high school and Holmes would be on stage six nights a week.
