Dead Accounts: complete cast announced
Judy Greer, Josh Hamilton and Jayne Houdyshell complete the cast for Theresa Rebeck's new comedy Dead Accounts, directed by Jack O'Brien, opening at the Music Box Theatre on 29 Nov 2012, following previews from 3 Nov 2012.
They join the previously announced Norbert Leo Butz and Katie Holmes.
The comedy is being produced on Broadway by Jeffrey Finn, John N. Hart Jr., David Mirvish, Amy Nauiokas, Ergo Entertainment, and The Shubert Organization.
In Dead Accounts, Jack's (Norbert Leo Butz) unexpected return throws his family into a frenzy, and his sister Lorna (Katie Holmes) needs answers. Is he coming home or running away? Where is his wife (Judy Greer) everyone hates? And how did he get all that money? Theresa Rebeck's new comedy tackles the timely issues of corporate greed, small town values, and whether or not your family will always welcome you back...with no questions asked.
