A Look at Catch Me If You Can (Video)

PlayBlog   A Look at Catch Me If You Can (Video) Catch Me If You Can is the new Broadway musical based on the life of charming conman Frank Abagnale Jr., played on stage by Aaron Tveit (Next to Normal). The production officially opened April 10 at the Neil Simon Theatre.


The musical, according to the producers, "captures the astonishing true story of Abagnale, Jr., a world-class con artist who passed himself off as a doctor, a lawyer, and a jet pilot — all before the age of 21. With straight-arrow FBI agent Carl Hanratty on Frank's trail, we're off on a jet-setting, cat-and-mouse chase, as a jazzy, swinging-sixties score keeps this adventure in constant motion. In the end, Agent Hanratty learns he and Frank aren't so very different after all, and Frank finds out what happens when love catches up to a man on the run."

The cast also stars Norbert Leo Butz (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Wicked) as FBI Fraud Agent Carl Hanratty, Tom Wopat (Sondheim on Sondheim, Annie Get Your Gun) as Frank Sr., Kerry Butler (Xanadu, Hairspray) as Brenda, Rachel De Benedet (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) as Paula Abagnale, Linda Hart (Hairspray) as Carol Strong and Nick Wyman (Tale of Two Cities) as Roger Strong.
