Katie Holmes was forced to sprint through the streets of New York on Tuesday (30Dec08) - after heavy traffic threatened to make her late for her performance on Broadway.
The actress has been living in the Big Apple with husband Tom Cruise and daughter Suri since the start of her run in Arthur Miller play All My Sons in October (08).
The family left their apartment together early on Tuesday evening, but after spotting the build-up of traffic on the roads, Holmes decided to go it alone to the theatre to ensure she made it on time.
She was later reunited with her family at the stage door.
