Dead Accounts delays first preview due to storm

Due to Hurricane Sandy, Theresa Rebeck's new comedy Dead Accounts, will now begin previews on 5 Nov 2012 at the Music Box Theatre. The show, which was originally scheduled to begin previews on 3 Nov 2012, will still open on 29 Nov 2012 as first announced.

Starring two-time Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz and Katie Holmes, Dead Accounts, directed by three-time Tony Award winner Jack O'Brien, also stars, Judy Greer, Josh Hamilton, and two-time Tony Award nominee Jayne Houdyshell.

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.

The creative team for the production features David Rockwell (scenic design), Catherine Zuber (costume design), David Weiner (lighting design), and Mark Bennett (sound design, original music).

Dead Accounts is produced by Jeffrey Finn, John N. Hart Jr., David Mirvish, Amy Nauiokas, Ergo Entertainment, Harriet Newman Leve, Double Gemini Productions, 3toGo Entertainment, and The Shubert Organization.

Her comedy 'Seminar,' which starred Alan Rickman and was directed by Sam Gold, played at Broadway's John Golden Theatre from 27 Oct 2011 - 6 May 2012. And her first Broadway play 'Mauritius' was produced by the Manhattan Theatre Club in 2007.
