Katie Holmes Wows Critics With Broadway Debut
Holmes drew a star-studded crowd to the show, including husband Tom Cruise - who hailed her performance as 'extraordinary' and was joined by his Rain Man co-star Dustin Hoffman in the audience.
Now critics have piled in to echo the Hollywood actor, praising Holmes' skill in the Arthur Miller play.
In a review from the Associated Press, one critic says: "If Holmes felt nervous and jittery, she didn't show it. She delivered her lines with confidence and projected her girlish voice so it could be heard loud and clear. She danced around on stage with gusto. She looked lovely in two dresses that highlighted her trim yet shapely figure."
A theatergoer and friend of Holmes, New Yorker Nadja Forbes, adds: "She brings this fresh breeze of air not only in her acting but also in her dialog that kind of breaks up the seriousness of what's going on. I'm actually surprised that she's, you know, enough of an actress for being on Broadway."
The show, which co-stars John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest and Patrick Wilson officially opens October 16.
