Poor Katie Holmes.
Looks like her marriage to Scientology princess Tom Cruise has ruined her career. Or basically her image.
Execs for Broadway's All My Sons were hoping that a big name could drive up ticket sales. In the same way that having "stars" like Mario Lopez in A Chorus Line and Clay Aiken in Spamalot helped boost sales.
So getting a real celebrity would guarantee good sales you'd think?
But not when half the world probably thinks you're being brainwashed or crazy for marrying Cruise.
According to reports, ticket sales for Holmes' Broadway debut at “definitely off from what the production hoped. You can’t say it’s the economy, because there are shows, like ‘Mamma Mia’ that are selling out.”
So what are the producers to do? They're blaming it on Katie's Dawson Creek days.
One source says, “It’s not that Katie’s bad in the part. She’s good enough. The producers are just getting the feeling people still want to view Katie as sweet little Joey Potter.”
Hah. Yea right. That was too long ago, and too much has happened with her and Cruise to even remember her B.C. (Before Cruise) happy days.
As for Jackie Green, the publicist for the shiteous show, she says "That information is totally false. There is a healthy advance for the show, and there is no chance of the run being shortened."
