Katie Holmes was all smiles in New York yesterday as she walked through Times Square to rehearse for her new Broadway show, Dead Accounts, after Hurricane Sandy's devastation delayed previews of the play

The actress looked thrilled to be headed back to work as she was snapped out and about in post-Hurricane Sandy afflicted New York on Thursday, carrying a cup of coffee and working a laidback look in wide-leg jeans, a button-down shirt, a chunky grey knit jumper and a raspberry leather cross-body bag.

Previews of her new play, Dead Accounts, were due to begin this weekend but have been pushed back to Monday due to the effects of Superstorm Sandy, and according to the LA Times, producers are offering ticket holders from the cancelled Saturday preview performance a sweet treat to make up for the missed show: a free pint of Graeter's ice cream, which is referenced in the play itself.

Katie recently told US Weekly that she is 'thrilled' about heading back to Broadway, and about tackling the role of Lorna:

'Finally I get to yell!,' she told the magazine. 'What I really loved about this character was she’s strong underneath it all. I like her values, I like that she’s trying to figure it all out and really cares for her family.'

New Yorkers are getting back on their feet after Hurricane Sandy devastated the city earlier this week, causing widespread flooding, shutting down airports and subways and leading to power outages around the city.
