DEAD ACCOUNTS Begins Performances on Broadway Today, November 5
Dead Accounts, the new Broadway comedy, begins previews tonight, November 5 at the Music Box Theatre (239 West 45th Street). The show will open on Thursday, November 29.
Starring two-time Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz and Katie Holmes, Dead Accounts, the new comedy by Pulitzer Prize finalist Theresa Rebeck, directed by three-time Tony Award winner Jack O’Brien, also stars, Judy Greer, Josh Hamilton, and two-time Tony Award nominee Jayne Houdyshell.
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.
