With a cast led by a two-time Tony Award-winner Norbert Leo Butz, and an actress currently best-known for her off-screen life, Katie Holmes, the new play Dead Accounts, gives fans of both acting and star-gazing a reason to head to the Music Box Theatre.

Theresa Rebeck’s new play is described as dark comedy, with darkness in the form of a financial scandal that drives a man from the big city back to his family’s Ohio homestead. New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood takes the measure of the play and the principal performers.
