  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Dead Accounts

    Prodigal Son, Dripping Sweat and Mystery

    Ben Brantley

    November 29, 2012: Any analysis of the chemical makeup of Norbert Leo Butz would surely reveal traces of gunpowder. How else to account for the fireworks that Mr. Butz is conjuring out of thin air at the Music Box Theater, where Theresa Rebeck’s “Dead Accounts” opened on Thursday night?

  • NEWSDAY REVIEW OF Dead Accounts

    A slim sitcom

    Linda Winer

    November 29, 2012: Ridiculous, I know, to worry about Katie Holmes. She has beauty, money, family and appears to be a very nice person. Similarly, it feels silly to be concerned about playwright Theresa Rebeck. Yes, she was noisily dumped at "Smash," the TV show she created, but she's had five major productions here in the past six years. "Dead Accounts" -- Holmes' first move to establish herself as more than a celebrity divorcee -- is the sixth.

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW OF Dead Accounts

    Theresa Rebeck’s ‘Dead Accounts’ with Katie Holmes isn’t DOA but it lacks sharpness

    Mark Kennedy

    November 29, 2012: You might expect Katie Holmes to have something to prove in her first acting appearance since splitting from Tom Cruise. You might expect her to emerge onstage in a gown by Valentino and shoes by Jimmy Choo.

    Dead Accounts

    David Rooney

    November 29, 2012: Watching Katie Holmes play a woman chafing against a stifling situation in Dead Accounts, just a block from the New York headquarters of the Church of Scientology, the symbolic parallels are irresistible. When the character played by Josh Hamilton finally overcomes his timidity and declares his love for her with a kiss, the moment signifies the escape of this frustrated Midwesterner to a more fulfilling life. The exhaustive tabloid chronicles of Holmes’ recent flight to independence provide an amusing subtext, something otherwise lacking in Theresa Rebeck’s superficial new comedy.

  • ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY REVIEW OF Dead Accounts

    Dead Accounts

    Thom Geier

    November 29, 2012: Norbert Leo Butz is no stranger to playing shady characters, from the con artist in the musical Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (for which he won a Tony) to real-life felon Jeffrey Skilling in Enron. In Dead Accounts, Theresa Rebeck's engaging but unsatisfying new dramedy, he brings a fast-talking charm to a New York banker named Jack who suddenly shows up at his parents' suburban Cincinnati home with suspicious stacks of cash. In the linoleum-floored kitchen, he deflects inquiries from his super-Catholic mom (a reliably dowdy Jayne Houdyshell) and his kid sister Lorna (Katie Holmes), who's helping care for their ailing offstage dad.
