Penned by Tony Award-winning Hairspray songwriters Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman and Tony-winning playwright Terrence McNally (Master Class, The Full Monty, Kiss of the Spider Woman), the sleek, jazz-inflected musical opened on Broadway April 10 at the Neil Simon Theatre.
It reunites much of the creative team behind the hit musical Hairspray, including director Jack O'Brien and choreographer Jerry Mitchell. The production frames the scandalous adventures of Abagnale's life within a 1960's television variety show, as he cons his way to becoming an airline pilot, lawyer and doctor, all while eluding the FBI.
Here is a look at the celebration:
