It’s no surprise to see celebrities in the audience of Katie Holmes current Broadway hit, All My Sons, but the star-power inside the Schoenfeld Theatre on Wednesday afternoon went into overload when the actress’ hubby Tom Cruise was joined by good pals David Beckham and Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham.
For some audience members, it was hard to keep their eyes on the stage with these three superstars in the crowd.
"Tom clapped really loud and laughed when Katie came on stage," Hillary Hamm from Oklahoma, who sat in front of the Valkyrie star and his guests, told OK! after the show. "They were really into the play. Right at intermission they darted out so no one could come up to them. A lot of people didn’t notice they were here until intermission."
By the end of the show, everyone in the theater knew about the trio of celebrities in the fifth row. "When we found out who was here, everyone was like ‘Oh my gosh,’" a second audience member, Hayley Pearson, told OK!. "They were near the front and all their bodyguards were around then. David was on the aisle."
Even the star of the show had to acknowledge her VIP fans. "When Katie came out and took a bow, Tom and the Beckhams were the first ones to stand and clap," Hillary continues. "Tom waved to the row we were in. When Katie came out at the end she looked at Tom and smiled at him from the stage. It was really cute."
For Hayley, it was a once-in a lifetime experience: "I thought the play was phenomenal. It’s my first time here and I guess New York didn’t dissapoint."

Following the show, David and Victoria each gave their own, glowing reviews of the play. "It was good!" said the soccer stud as he exited the theater. And Posh told OK!, "It was fabulous!"
After hanging out backstage, and then reconvening at the East Village townhouse Katie’s been residing in during her Big Apple stay, the two couples changed outfits and all their kids headed off to a big family dinner at Il Cantinori on E. 10 St.
