Off Broadway’s ‘Killer Joe’ makes room for Williams

Thesp to leave 'Dawson's'

Michelle Williams, star of the WB’s “Dawson’s Creek,” is leaving the show for the summer to immerse herself in Off Broadway’s “Killer Joe.”

Williams also stars in the upcoming Sony Pictures Entertainment release, “Dick.” She will join the “Joe” production as prodigal daughter Dottie Smith. She begins previews on April 20 and will stay with the legiter through June 27.

Legiter, penned by Tracy Letts and helmed by Wilson Milam, focuses on a tawdry trailer park murder scheme to knock off mama for the “insurance money” — only to have things go horribly awry.

Williams joins an ensemble cast that encompasses Paul Dillon, aka Joe, who originated the title role of the play in its Chicago production, and who currently stars in the NBC suspenser “The Pretender.” Also featured are Lori Petty (also making her Gotham stage debut), Seth Ullian (Off Broadway in “Trainspotting”) and Marc A. Nelson.

Williams is repped by Bonnie Bernstein in Gotham and Greg Siegel in Los Angeles(both of Endeavor), and is managed by Jason Weinberg at Untitled Entertainment in Gotham.
