This bright and bouncy show features a sixties-influenced score by the Hairspray team of Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. The show is based on the 2002 film of the same name which starred Leonardo DiCaprio and follows the story of con man Frank Abagnale, Junior.
Narrated by Frank as if his story is a television special, Catch Me draws audiences in to his web of relationships with his parents, FBI agent Hanratty and eventually his girlfriend and her parents. The show manages to walk the fine line of making Frank likeable in spite of his crimes. (From the show’s first scene, we know he’ll eventually pay for his misdeeds.)
Catch Me if You Can flew onto Broadway in April 2011 and ran for over 200 performances and is now on tour throughout the US. The show received critical praise and was nominated for four Tony Awards. Whether or not you’ve seen Steven Spielberg’s hit movie based on the same subject matter, if you enjoy a comic caper, Catch Me If You Can is the musical to see.
