Katie Holmes will have to wait two more days before she begins preview performances of the new Teresa Rebeck play "Dead Accounts." The Broadway production has pushed back the start of preview performances to Monday due to the effects of the storm Sandy.
Producers are offering a somewhat unusual recompense to ticket holders of the canceled Saturday preview performance -- a free pint of Graeter's ice cream (which is mentioned in the play itself, according to a release).
Organizers said that patrons of the canceled performance may present their tickets at the Music Box Theatre box office to claim their coupons. The freebies are available only at D’Agostino's supermarkets in New York through Nov. 30. The ticketholders then can reschedule to another performance.
"Dead Accounts" had previously been scheduled to begin previews Saturday. The comedy also stars Norbert Leo Butz, Judy Greer, Josh Hamilton and Jayne Houdyshell. Multiple Tony winner Jack O'Brien is directing the production.
