Immediately following the 7 PM performances, Tveit, who stars as charming con man Frank Abagnale, Jr., will take the stage at the Neil Simon Theatre to answer audience members' questions.

Tveit received 2011 Drama League, Outer Critics Circle and Fred Astaire Award nominations for his performance as Frank Abagnale, Jr. and has also been seen on Broadway in Next to Normal, Wicked and Hairspray.

Based on the DreamWorks film of the same name (and the autobiography by Frank Abagnale Jr. and Stan Redding), Catch Me If You Can has a score by Tony winners Marc Shaiman (music/lyrics) and Scott Wittman (lyrics) and a book by Tony winner Terrence McNally (Master Class, Ragtime).

Catch Me If You Can, according to the producers, "captures the astonishing true story of Frank 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 features Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Is He Dead?) 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.
