Katie Holmes’ return to Broadway will be much shorter than she would have liked. Producers said Thursday that Holmes’ play Dead Accounts, a drama by Theresa Rebeck, will close next Sunday after 27 previews and 44 performances.

Rebeck created the first season of NBC’s Smash and several well-received plays, including Seminar and Mauritius.
