WHO: Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise (and friends)
WHERE: Claudette, Greenwich Village NYC
WHEN: October 31, 2017, 7 – 10 PM
Suri Cruise knows how to party – by paying homage to Broadway’s original girl gang! On Halloween night, the 11-year-old daughter of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise celebrated the holiday decked out as one of the Pink Ladies from the hit musical Grease. After trick-or-treating, Suri and her two girlfriends (plus one boy – who was not dressed as one of the “beauty school drop-outs”) enjoyed a sophisticated dinner at downtown hot spot Claudette.
Mom Katie was along for the meal too, though she came sans costume – instead opting for a basic camel-colored turtleneck sweater and jeans. The Broadway alum had two of her own (adult) friends along to keep her company, plus one woman who appeared to be a nanny. (ICYMI: Katie Holmes made her Broadway debut in the 2008 revival of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons and returned in 2012 for Dead Accounts.)
Broadway Spin‘s eyewitness reported that the entire group sat by the front entrance at one table that was made up of four small, round bistro tables pushed together – but the kids sat at one end, while adults sat at the other. Suri and her pals were well behaved but very animated as they talked and laughed. There was no candy served — Katie and her crew sipped white wine and shared several mall dishes “family style” — but we can all agree, wine > candy.
While they arrived on the early side at 7 PM, the group stayed for several hours, well after they had finished eating. As the adults chatted quietly among themselves, Suri and her pals watched the Halloween revelers go by and pointed out costumes they particularly liked. (Situated at 5th Ave. and 9th Street, the French eatery is pretty much in the heart of Halloween central in NYC so the kids had a front-row view of the evening’s show.) Around 10 PM, the kids finally began to get restless and the troupe headed home — it was a school night after all.
