Lyrics by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman
Based on the DreamWorks Motion Picture
Chase your dreams…but don’t get caught.
September 4 – October 11, 2020
Directed by Chrissy Burns
Musical Direction by Jerrica Stone
Choreography by Jenn Harris
Based on the hit Steven Spielberg film and the incredible true story, Catch Me If You Can is the high-flying musical comedy about chasing your dreams and not getting caught. Nominated for four Tony awards, including Best Musical, this delightfully entertaining show was created by a Tony Award-winning “dream team,” with a book by Terrence McNally (The Full Monty, Ragtime) and a swinging score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray).
This true-life story portrays Frank’s story as a 1960s TV spectacular, boasting a soulful Motown-with-a-shot-of-Sinatra score. Seeking fame and fortune, precocious teenager, Frank Abignale, Jr., runs away from home to begin an unforgettable adventure.
With nothing more than his boyish charm, a big imagination and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor and a lawyer – living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. Frank’s lies catch the attention of FBI agent, Carl Hanratty, who pursues Frank across the country to make him pay for his crimes.
Catch Me If You Can is a big and bright spectacle with high-energy dance numbers and a riveting story everyone can relate to.
