Katie Holmes returns to New York stage in off-Broadway show 'The Wanderers'
Katie Holmes has returned to the New York stage in the off-Broadway production of "The Wanderers."
Holmes takes on the role of Julia Cheever, a movie star whose online friendship with an acclaimed novelist threatens his marriage and raises questions about happiness within a relationship.
"This show is about two couples who live in Williamsburg Brooklyn, and it's at different time periods," Holmes said.
"The more modern couple, the husband is going through the death of his father and he already had experienced the death of his mother. It's traumatic moments like that obviously everybody goes through...death is part of life. But it's the choosing to live again that is so poignant, that is so much a theme of this," she says.
Roundabout Theatre Company's "The Wanderers" is written by Anna Ziegler and directed by Barry Edelstein, artistic director of The Old Globe in San Diego where the play was previously performed. It is now in previews ahead of a scheduled Feb. 16 opening at the Harold And Miriam Steinberg Center For Theatre.
The limited engagement is currently scheduled through April 2.
