Katie Holmes' Broadway debut

Katie Holmes is set to make her Broadway debut later this year.

The 29-year-old actress is reportedly in final negotiations to star in a New York revival of Arthur Miller's post-World War II play 'All My Sons' alongside stage veterans John Lithgow and Dianne Wiest.

Britain's Daily Mail columnist Baz Bamigboye revealed: "The actress has committed to taking part in a private workshop of the play in May. She will play the part of a woman who visits her former neighbours, the family of a missing pilot she once loved."

Katie, who last tread the boards in high school, has assured the play's British-born director Simon McBurney and producer Eric Falkenstein that she is serious about working in the theatre.

The former 'Dawson's Creek' star is desperate to be recognised for her acting skills and not just the wife of Tom Cruise.

Kate - who married the 'Top Gun' actor in November 2006 - received critical acclaim for her performances in 'Batman Begins' and 'Thank You For Smoking', but decided to take a break from acting after giving birth to the couple's first child Suri in April 2006.

The brunette beauty made her big screen comeback in the comedy heist 'Mad Money' alongside Queen Latifah, which was released in the US earlier this year.
