AceShowbiz - Katie Holmes is making her return the stage after a 10-year absence. The "Dawson's Creek" actress has been signed on for an Off-Broadway production of "The Wanderers" - written by playwright Anna Ziegler - which is set to begin preview performances at the the Laura Pels Theater in New York in January with Katie playing a movie star who becomes involved in the life of a Jewish novelist.
Helmed by The Old Globe Theatre's artistic director Barry Edelstein, the Roundabout Theatre Company show is planned to open on February 16 for a limited run through until March 26. The rest of the cast and additional creative team members will be announced at a later date.
A statement from the theatre company states of the play, "Orthodox Jews Esther and Schmuli are newly married, and their future is written in the laws of the Torah. Secular Jew Abe is a famous novelist who believes he can write his own future … until an unexpected email from a movie star puts his marriage to the test and threatens to prove him wrong."
Katie made her Broadway debut in 2008 starring in a revival of Arthur Miller's classic play "All My Sons" opposite stars including John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest, and Patrick Wilson. Her last appearance on stage came 10 years ago in a 2012 production of "Dead Accounts" by Theresa Rebeck.
