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."
Catch Me If You Can officially opened April 10 at the Neil Simon Theatre. Abagnale Jr. has made appearances at the Neil Simon to host talkbacks about the musical and answer questions about his life as a successful conman.
