Katie Holmes gave her first performance on Broadway on Thursday night in Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons”. Was she nervous, how did she do? Did her voice carry beyond the footlights?
The show on Thursday was a preview performance of the play and Katie’s performance was well accepted by critics and theatre goers.
One critic from the Associated Press even said that, “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 friend of Katie’s said that she brought, “this
fresh breeze of air not only in her acting but also in her dialogue
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
I think a lot of people felt that she isn’t enough of an actress for Broadway, but we must remember that she has John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest and Patrick Wilson as co-stars. I’m sure they all want to succeed so they had a ton of rehearsals and tips to give her so she would be ready.
Way to go Katie!
