Broadway Smackdown: Katie Tops Harry Potter

In its first full week of performances, the Holmes-powered revival of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons was the hottest dramatic ticket on the Great White Way, grossing $684,002 for the week ended Sunday, according to Playbill.com.

Costarring John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest and Patrick Wilson, All My Sons is still in previews until Oct. 16. But due in part to the buzz (and contoversy) surrounding Holmes’ debut, the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre was nearly full last week, 97.6 percent of its 1,052 seats were sold at an average ticket price of $83.31.

Broadway Stars Give Katie Holmes Advice for Her Debut

Nothing like the wisdom of the stars to help make Katie Holmes’s jump from screen to stage a smooth one.

As the actress prepares for her Broadway debut this fall in the revival of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, veteran stage actors shared some tips at the Tony Awards Sunday night in New York City.

“She’s a pro and I’d say to be herself,” says John Lithgow, who will costar with Holmes in the family drama. “She’s going to be wonderful. I’m looking forward to working with her. We haven’t worked together yet but it’s going to be great.”

Brooke Shields, who starred in Chicago as Roxie Hart in 2005, is excited that Holmes is making the leap from screen to stage. “She will be so happy about making that decision,” says Shields. “There is nothing like it. It’s the Olympics. It’s the college of theater.”

And Tony Award-winning actress Kristin Chenoweth says Holmes should focus on getting a good night rest. “I would recommend her just to stay [healthy] and get a lot of good sleep and drink lots of water,” she says. “It takes so much energy to be on stage 7 days a week so she needs a good night’s sleep everyday. But I’m sure she will do just fine.”
