Washington, Sept 19 : Katie Holmes made her Broadway debut amid anti-Scientologist protesters in Manhattan.
About 30 protesters lined up at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre and chanted "Scientology kills!"
Some wore masks like in the movie "V for Vendetta," and one poster read: "FREE KATIE."
But the 29-year-old actress indeed won praises for her act at the preview performance for "All My Sons."
"I love Katie Holmes," Fox News quoted Melissa Doyle, a New Yorker, as saying.
"I think she's a great actress and right now, I really love her for her fashion, her style! I think she really kind of differentiates herself among young Hollywood. Plus, she's a mom - and I just think she's a really good role model," she added.
Hubby Tom Cruise was also present at the theatre, where he mingled and shook hands with some other theatergoers who took photos and clapped.
