Katie Holmes to make Broadway debut

Actress Katie Holmes will make her Broadway debut later this year in a revival of Arthur Miller's All My Sons, starring alongside Oscar winner Dianne Wiest and Tony winner John Lithgow, producers say.

Holmes shot to fame on the US television series Dawson's Creek before marrying actor Tom Cruise with whom she has two-year-old daughter Suri. Most recently she starred in box office flop Mad Money.

All My Sons is due to open on Broadway in the northern autumn, but a theatre and date have not yet been announced.

The play is based on a true story about a successful businessman who knowingly sold the government defective plane parts during World War II with tragic consequences.

The truth comes out and his life unravels when his son marries his business partner's daughter, to be played by Holmes.

All My Sons was first performed on Broadway in 1947 and won Tony Awards for Miller and director Elia Kazan.

It was adapted for a 1948 feature film starring Edward G Robinson and Burt Lancaster and then performed again on Broadway in 1987.
