Katie Holmes' Broadway play has been curtailed due to poor ticket sales, and will close seven weeks early next month.

"Dead Accounts" premiered last month at the Music Box Theatre in New York and received mixed reviews.

Instead of ending on its scheduled Feb. 24 closure, the show will now close on Jan. 6. The production will wrap after just 27 previews and 44 regular performances.

"Dead Accounts" producer Jeffrey Finn voiced his disappointment in the show's closure while speaking to BroadwayWorld.com this week.

"I am extremely proud of this production and the cast," said the producer. "[Writer] Theresa Rebeck and [director] Jack O'Brien have created an inspiring and hilarious new play and we are all sad to see 'Dead Accounts' end on Broadway."

Finn added, "I look forward to working with this remarkably talented cast and creative team again very soon."

Last week, "Dead Accounts" saw the lowest attendance of all current Broadway shows with only 38 percent of the seats filled, according to Yahoo News.

Holmes, who first made her Broadway debut in 2008's "All My Sons," starred in "Dead Accounts" alongside Norbert Leo Butz.

Meanwhile, Holmes will remain busy following her divorce from Tom Cruise and living in New York City with daughter Suri.

The "Dawson's Creek" star and Cruise finalized their divorce earlier this year and agreed that their six-year-old daughter Suri would live with her mother.

Due to New York law requiring that all divorce documents be sealed, the exact terms of the settlement are unknown. The couple had been married for five years before their split.

The actress is often spotted with her daughter in NYC, as Suri attends the Convent of the Sacred Heart in NYC's Upper East Side.

Furthermore, Holmes has established herself as a designer with her label Holmes & Yang.

The actress started the label with her stylist Jeanne Yang in 2009. They debuted their line at New York Fashion Week last fall.
