Following her performance in All My Sons, Katie's co-star, John Lithgow announced to the audience, "Tom Cruise, our good friend, devoted fan to the show, doting husband of Katie, could not be here tonight. He's heartsick that he couldn't be here ... but he wanted to make his presence felt. So, he's joining us, inviting all of you, to celebrate Katie's birthday."

A five tiered, white-frosted birthday cake was then wheeled out on stage, while the audience cheered and sang "Happy Birthday."

A seemingly shy Katie thanked the audience saying, "Thank you for coming out to the show tonight. It was a real pleasure."
