NEW YORK, Dec. 28 (UPI) -- The stage play "Dead Accounts," starring Katie Holmes and Norbert Leo Butz, will end its Broadway run seven weeks early, producers announced.

The show will close Jan. 6.

"I am extremely proud of this production and the cast. Theresa Rebeck and Jack O'Brien have created an inspiring and hilarious new play and we are all sad to see 'Dead Accounts' end on Broadway," producer Jeffrey Finn said in a statement. "I look forward to working with this remarkably talented cast and creative team again very soon."

The play began previews Nov. 5 and opened Nov. 29 at the Music Box Theatre in New York. It was scheduled to run through Feb. 24.

The New York Times said the closure notice came after the play received lukewarm reviews and experienced sluggish ticket sales.
