SYNOPSIS 

Based on the hit Dream Works Film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks , Amy Adams, Jennifer Garner and Martin Sheen.  This splashy spectacle follows the unbelievable true story of one of the most famous con-artists in history, Frank Abagnale, Jr.   Catch Me If You Can is a rousing musical set in the 1960’s.   We begin as Frank is captured by Agent Hanratty after years of pursuit.  Frank, however, thinks the audience deserves to hear his version of the truth, and narrates his life as a hip, dance-heavy variety television show.  We see Frank, as a teenager, run away from his unhappy home to live a life of great adventure, conning people by assuming a multitude od identities:  airline pilot, doctor, and lawyer, to name a few.  A fast,  rollicking musical by the creative team behind Hairspray,  first produced in 2011.

CRITICS REACTION 

The Huffington Post

A sheer delight.  This generations answer to  How To Succeed In Business Without ReallyTrying.   Seamless in weaving together drama, comedy, dance, genuine scenes of pathos and casual banter with the audience and orchestra.

The Hollywood Reporter

Super-slick.  Boasts superb craftsmanship, sophisticated design work, and tuneful songs.  The score evokes cocktail lounges, glitzy floorshows, Rat Pack suaveness, mellow jazz and energized go-go, all wrapped up in silky smooth ‘60s style orchestration.

New York Times

Catch Me If You Can uses the Tv song-and-dance show the way Chicago uses vaudeville: it’s the structure through which we meet the characters and watch the plot develop.

Variety

Offers consider entertainment value.  The score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman is more ambitious than their work on Hairspray.
