"Dead Accounts" began previews on Monday, November 5 and opened Thursday, November 29 at the Music Box Theatre. The play is by Pulitzer Prize finalist Theresa Rebeck and directed by two-time Tony Award winner Jack O'Brien. Dead Accounts stars two-time Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz and Katie Holmes. The production also stars Judy Greer, Josh Hamilton, and two-time Tony Award nominee Jayne Houdyshell. Holmes had previously acted on the Great White Way in a revival of Arthur Miller's "All My Sons" in 2008.
In Dead Accounts, Jack's (Butz) unexpected return throws his family into a frenzy, and his sister Lorna (Holmes) needs answers. Is he coming home or running away? Where is his wife (Greer) everyone hates? And how did he get all that money? Theresa Rebeck's new comedy tackles the timely issues of corporate greed, small town values, and whether or not your family will always welcome you back...with no questions asked.
The creative team for the production features five-time Tony nominee David Rockwell (scenic design), five-time Tony winner Catherine Zuber (costume design), David Weiner (lighting design), Mark Bennett (sound design, original music), and Tom Watson (hair design).
"Dead Accounts" is produced by Jeffrey Finn, John N. Hart Jr., David Mirvish, Amy Nauiokas, Ergo Entertainment, Harriet Newman Leve, Double Gemini Productions, 3toGo Entertainment, and The Shubert Organization.
