Catch Me If You Can is the new Broadway musical based on the life of conman Frank Abagnale Jr., played on stage by Aaron Tveit (Next to Normal). The production officially opened April 10 at the Neil Simon Theatre. Tveit, along with his ensemble of girls, shot a new television commercial to the first act musical number, "Jet Set."


Here, the cast goes in front of the green screen for multiple takes of what will become a 30-second commercial. The Broadway actors readjust to performing out of order.

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."
