The key to throwing summer's hottest dance party? Just invite Katie Holmes.
The Mania Days actress was in attendance at Saturday's Apollo in the Hamptons: A Night of Legends event, held at Apollo Theater board member Ron Perelman's East Hampton estate. The line-up of stars out to support the iconic theater included the Roots and Lenny Kravitz, with surprise performances by Darlene Love, Jon Bon Jovi, Ciara, and Pharrell.
Seated at a long table in center of Perelman's party barn alongside prosecutor pal Leigh Bishop, Jamie Foxx, Ellen DeGeneres and Penny Marshall, Holmes, 34, started getting into the groove slowly, swaying to Darlene Love's powerful rendition of "Lean on Me."
Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise celebrated Memorial Day weekend in Rosemary Beach, Fla.
Joined by some of Holmes's family, the actress, 34, and Cruise, 7, soaked up the sunny, 90 degree weather on Sunday, taking a break from the beach to have lunch at Summer Kitchen Cafe.
"Everyone looked like they were having a great time," a staffer tells PEOPLE. "Katie had a chicken salad and the table was drinking iced tea. There was a lot of laughing. Suri was really polite and so well behaved."
It was a day of pampering for Katie Holmes and daughter Suri Cruise on Saturday.
Just two days after turning 7, Suri indulged in an afternoon of manicures and pedicures at Tribeca's i-Plaza Nail & Spa in New York City.
Nestled in between Holmes and Holmes's mother, Kathleen, Suri played on her iPad as the trio got pedicures. Meanwhile, Holmes and her mother were texting and reading on their phones.
Someone had a sweet birthday!
Katie Holmes kicked off her 34th birthday celebration Tuesday with daughter Suri Cruise by her side. The pair enjoyed breakfast at New York City's Sugar and Plumm bistro and bakery, on the Upper West Side.
The duo ordered the silver dollar pancakes and eggs Benedict, but saved room for dessert: After their meal, Holmes was treated to a surprise birthday cake created by pastry chef Pichet Ong. The dreamy confection was made of vanilla sponge cake layered with strawberry jam and vanilla buttercream, and said "Happy Birthday Katie" on top. – Carlos Greer
While Katie Holmes's ex, Tom Cruise, was in England promoting his new movie and prepping for Christmas with his children, she was letting her hair down at a performing arts training program benefit in New York City.
Clad in a long, purple dress by Vivienne Westwood and wearing her wavy hair down, Holmes, 33, looked cozy and comfortable shooting the breeze for several hours at Broadway Dreams Foundation annual Champagne & Caroling Gala on Monday.
Spending much of her time at the winter-themed party hanging out with her lawyer, Jonathan Wolfe, and the director of her current Broadway play (from which she had the night off), Dead Accounts, Jack O'Brien, Holmes sipped champagne but abstained from the short-rib tartlet, crab cake and shrimp cocktail appetizers.
After the opening night of previews of Dead Accounts, Katie Holmes hosted a small party at The Lambs Club in New York on Monday.
"Katie came into the party wearing sunglasses," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She stayed for about 45 minutes and put the sunglasses back on when she was leaving."
Dressed in "a beautiful flowy black pantsuit and white shirt," Holmes mingled with her guests as they enjoyed Hemingway daiquiris, shrimp tartines and tuna tartare.
Although she made a brief appearance, while in attendance, Holmes – who made her Broadway debut in 2008 in a revival of Arthur Miller's All My Sons – was in "good spirits" and spent a lot of time with costar Judy Greer, the source adds.
Dead Accounts, written by Theresa Rebeck and also starring Jayne Houdyshell and two-time Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz, officially opens Nov. 29.

While most New Yorkers were preparing for the impending Frankenstorm on Sunday, Katie Holmes ventured out to upscale eatery ABC Kitchen.
Joined by a blonde female friend, Suri, another child and a bodyguard – who was stayed seated at the bar as the ladies dined – the Dead Accounts actress was hard to miss.
"Katie was all dolled up, lots of makeup and dressed to impress," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She was wearing very high heels, a dark green silk shirt and carried a fuchsia clutch."
