Packed with comparisons of New York to the Midwest, Dead Accounts landed some solid laughs from the New York-based audience but one wonders what tourists will think of the inside jokes. Unfortunately, those are the only aspect of the show that is communicated clearly.
Some of the answers in Katie Holmes' new Broadway play "Dead Accounts" come at the end of the first act, and it would be remiss to give them away. Or, as the main character himself says, "It's so complicated it's not worth explaining."
To promote the Broadway play in which she stars, Dead Accounts -- the same one delayed by Hurricane Sandy last week -- Katie Holmes agreed to be interviewed with her co-star, Tony-winning Norbert Leo Butz, for a piece in The New York Times.
