Katie Holmes (recently divorced from Tom Cruise) and Theresa Rebeck (recently divested from Smash, which she created) are teaming up for the Broadway transfer of Rebeck's latest play, Dead Accounts. Set to bow this fall, Holmes will play an unglamorous woman living with her parents in Cincinnati while she tries to get her life in order. And though it's awfully hot in New York right now, something tells us that this fall, Katie Holmes will be wearing lots of scarves.
