17 OCTOBER 2008

The curtain officially rose on Katie Holmes' Broadway career this week as the Mad Money actress stepped onto the stage for the first public performance of post-WWII drama All My Sons.

Tom Cruise's wife, who was presented with a bouquet of blooms at the final curtain call, received a standing ovation for her portrayal of the daughter of a corrupt businessman in the Arthur Miller play. And the audience's positive reception was echoed in early reviews, which hailed her performance "stimulating" and "very provocative".

After taking a final bow Katie donned a white jumpsuit with lace detailing on the sleeves to attend an after-show party. While there was no sign of her famous husband - who attended her first preview performance - she was joined in celebrating the production's opening night success by her famous co-stars, Dianne West and 3rd Rock From The Sun star John Lithgow.
