What Is the Story of Dead Accounts?
Dead Accounts tells the story of a crafty New Yorker named Jack, who arrives at his Midwestern home in the middle of the night, greeted by his sister Lorna with a raised eyebrow and a lot of questions. Why is he eating exorbitant amounts of ice cream and pizza? Where is his wife, a woman the whole family despises? And where did he get all of this money? Jack’s sister, mother and childhood best friend try to dig up answers just as quickly as Jack tries to bury them in Theresa Rebeck’s biting new comedy.


A collection of our favorite reviews from professional news sources.

"Any analysis of the chemical makeup of Norbert Leo Butz would surely reveal traces of gunpowder. How else to account for the fireworks that Mr. Butz is conjuring out of thin air?"

The New York Times

Ben Brantley

"...the anguish and heart of [Butz's] character are revealed beautifully. Butz makes Jack both lovesick in one moment and thunderously revengeful in the next."

Associated Press

Mark Kennedy

"Directed with a nimble hand by Jack O’Brien, the Broadway production assembles a terrific five-person cast... Butz is a comic force of nature."
