CATCH ME IF YOU CAN National Tour to Launch in Fall 2012!
CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, which played its final performance on Broadway in September, will launch a non-equity national tour in the Fall of 2012, presented by Troika Entertainment. A full schedule has yet to be announced.
The opening night of CATCH ME IF YOU CAN was April 10, 2011 following previews that began on Friday, March 11, 2011. The production was nominated for four Tony Awards with Norbert Leo Butz taking home the award for Best Actor in a Musical. The production was nominated for three Drama League Awards, six Astaire Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, six Drama Desk Awards and seven Broadway.com Audience Awards. In addition to the Tony Award, Butz won the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Musical and the Astaire Award for Best Male Dancer.
CATCH ME IF YOU CAN captures the astonishing true story of Frank 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 is based on the book and hit 2002 DreamWorks film of the same name directed by Steven Spielberg with screenplay by Jeff Nathanson and book by Frank Abagnale, Jr.
