Katie Holmes on her Broadway nerves


Katie Holmes struggled to sleep because she was so worried about impressing audiences with her new Broadway play "Dead Accounts."

The former "Dawson's Creek" star debuted the production, by "Smash" creator Theresa Rebeck, in New York on Monday night, but she admits the rehearsal period was far from easy. Holmes reveals she suffered sleepless nights as she was plagued with anxiety about performing for the crowds at the city's Music Box Theatre.

She tells the New York Times, "I have a hard time sleeping because I think about how serious this all is. I think about the cost of tickets. I think to myself, 'You better do a good job. People are paying a lot of money.' You want to know your stuff." Holmes made her Broadway debut in 2008 in a revival of Arthur Miller's "All My Sons."

Lighten up Chip, this is "Movie News", not humanitarian news. It's her JOB, you douche.

Chip, her remarks reflect pre Sandy/Noreaster times.  She was her anxiety about her job, her work.  If the questions had been about the current state of affairs on the east coast I'm sure she would have answered differently.

Standing on stage before a live audience can be terrifying.

Every actor gets stage fright.

Poor Chip has a Chip on his shoulder doesn't he....haha
Good Lord, get a grip and move on.....if that was your job you would stress too, but oh wait you must not like your job or life or you would not be so negative towards others.  Good prevails over evil.   ahhhhhhhhh         Hope you have a nice day CHIP, Karma comes around and it is a bitch.
