Katie Holmes recognizes the heartbreaking personal end of an era ahead of Suri’s big day.

Katie Holmes recently celebrated a poignant personal milestone by performing her final performance of the off-Broadway drama The Wanderers.

The 44-year-old actress said her final goodbyes to the production just days before her daughter, Suri, turns 17 on April 18.

The Dawson’s Creek actress, who was formerly married to actor Tom Cruise from 2006 to 2012, made a spectacular comeback to the stage in The Wanderers after a decade away.
