One of history’s most notorious con artists has taken over the Broadway stage.
The new Broadway show, Catch Me If You Can is an entertaining musical comedy based on the 2002 blockbuster movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks. Like the hit DreamWorks film the Broadway version also tells the intriguing tale of Frank Abagnale Jr., who became one of the the most successful con men in America at just 16 years old.
This astounding true story is brought to life on stage with a little help from rising Broadway star Aaron Tveit (Wicked, Next to Normal) and his portrayal of Frank. Tveit has taken on the challenging role of being undeniably charming, confident, and imaginative while successfully posing as a doctor, airline pilot, and even a lawyer.
Joining Tveit on stage is the rest of the amazing cast, which includes Tony Award nominee, Kerry Butler (Hairspray, Xanadu) who plays Frank’s love interest. Additionally, Broadway favorite Norbert Leo Butz plays Carl Hanratty, the FBI agent who will not quit until Frank is caught.
The creative team behind this musical, along with the fabulous cast prove that they have the perfect recipe of contributors. Director Jack O’Brien seamlessly ties together all aspects of creativity, including the exceptional book by Terrance McNally, which is complemented by the work of Jerry Mitchell the choreographer, and costumes by William Ivey Long.
Catch Me If You Can has scheduled performances Tuesday through Sunday at the Neil Simon Theatre in New York City. This amazing musical comedy has acquired numerous rave reviews, so don’t miss your chance to see why!
