Broadway feels the Cruise effect as Tom embraces Katie's role
19 SEPTEMBER 2008
First there was a hubbub outside the New York theatre as the actress and her movie star husband Tom Cruise arrived in a blaze of flash bulbs.
More cheers and clapping broke out as the actor took his seat - after stopping to greet his Rain Man co-star Dustin Hoffman, who was also in the auditorium.
Mrs Cruise received a standing ovation for her confident performance as the daughter of a corrupt businessman in the Arthur Miller revival. And the audience's verdict definitely mirrored that of Katie's number one fan, Tom, who declared her portrayal "extraordinary".
