You'll want to know what sort of performance Katie Holmes gives in Theresa Rebeck's Dead Accounts, which marks the actress's second Broadway appearance and her first since she slipped out of the orbit of That Superstar Who Declared His Love by Jumping on a Sofa.
That’s a lot, considering there's not much meat to this comedy, and that most of it has been thrown into the sizable, eager mandibles of Tony-winner Norbert Leo Butz. It's a showcase role, and he's up for it.

Katie Holmes brought star power, and a touch of improvisation, in her return to the Broadway stage on Monday, as the new family comedy Dead Accounts opened for previews.
Holmes, 33, drew applause on several occasions – notably, when a telephone she was using in one scene broke, and she deftly fixed it without skipping a beat, even punctuating her dialogue by slapping the broken piece back into place.
She also earned cheers for a defiant speech about Wall Street greed – a recurring theme of the play, in which Holmes plays a Cincinnati woman whose brother returns home with a load of new money and a missing wife.
