"Dead Accounts" quick take

Dead Accounts, currently in a limited run on Broadway, is a must see in my book.  A comedy written by Theresa Rebeck (Seminar) is a story of small town values vs. big city vice.  Featuring another fantastic performance by Norbert Leo Butz (Enron, Speed The Plow, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) as a small town boy returned home after making it "big" in New York City.  The show also features Katie Holmes in her return to Broadway as Mr. Butz's sister.

While Ms. Holmes is certainly a star in her own right, the star if this show is Mr. Butz.  He with impeccable comedic timing and stage presence draws in the audience and has us pulling for him, even if the morals may not all be in the right place.

This play in 2 acts directed by Jack O'Brien flows seemlessly without any lulls or dead spots.  Go see this now as it is in a limited run and Mr. Butz is at the top of his game!
