Stage Act

Four years after making her Broadway debut in Arthur Miller's All My Sons, Holmes returns to the stage in a starring role in Dead Accounts, a comedy chronicling a man's unexpected homecoming with his family in Ohio. "What I like about her is that she's very real," the actress says of character Lorna. "When I'm looking for roles to play, it's exciting to find people who are complex like this." After under-performing at the box office, the play closes seven weeks ahead of schedule in January.
