Katie Holmes, who made her Broadway debut four years ago in a revival of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, returns to the Great White Way next month in Dead Accounts, a new comedy by Smash creator Theresa Rebeck that’s become one of the most buzzed-about plays of the season.

In this exclusive clip, the former Mrs. Tom Cruise and her costar, two-time Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz, talk about working together on the timely story of a con man who returns home suddenly flush with cash and upsets the order in his tight-knit family (including his sister, played by Holmes). The limited-run show, directed by three-time Tony winner Jack O’Brien, begins previews Nov. 3 before an official opening on Nov. 29.
