Actress to follow in Nicole Kidman's footsteps

Katie Holmes is in final negotiations to make her stage debut in Broadway production All My Sons.

The actress, 29, will play a woman visiting the family of a missing pilot she once loved in the post-World War II drama.

‘This play will be like a shop window for Katie,’ a theatre expert tells the Daily Mail.

‘It’s kind of a neat idea. Nicole Kidman had Hollywood eating out of her hand when she was in The Blue Room.’

Katie’s role would mean being on stage 6 nights a week, leaving husband Tom Cruise, 45, to babysit daughter Suri, 23 months.
