Katie Holmes' Backstage Behavior
Katie Holmes is costarring in a Broadway play called Dead Accounts and she knows there's a lot of interest in her in this town--both as an actor and a personality.
So the way Katie's been handling the stage door scene after the performances is to sometimes have a guard pull together all the Playbills from people who want her autograph and bring them inside.
They have you initial the Playbill so you'll get yours back.
And they bring it in to Katie and later come out with them, all John Hancocked for your box of Broadway memories.
The trouble is, sometimes the process takes so long that the other cast members are coming out and greeting the assembled fans, but the fans don't have their Playbills back yet!
One stage door Johnny admitted on a Broadway board that he simply took out his ticket stub for them to sign.
I would have simply held onto my program and sent Katie a settlement deal.
