Photo Coverage: CATCH ME IF YOU CAN Opening Night Curtain Call

The Broadway production of CATCH ME IF YOU CAN officially opened last night, April 10. BroadwayWorld.com was there to capture the show's high-energy curtain call!

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN is based on the book and hit 2002 DreamWorks film of the same name directed by Stephen Spielberg with screenplay by Jeff Nathanson and book by Frank Abagnale, Jr.

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.

Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz stars as Carl Hanratty and Aaron Tveit stars as Frank Abagnale, Jr. alongside Tony Nominee Tom Wopat as Frank Abagnale, Sr. and Tony Nominee Kerry Butler as Brenda Strong. The cast also features Rachel deBenedet as Paula Abagnale, Linda Hart as Carol Strong, Nick Wyman as Roger Strong, Joe CassidyTimothy McCuen PiggeeBrandon WardellJennifer Frankel,Lisa GajdaBob GaynorKearran GiovanniNick KenkelGrasan Kingsberry,Aleks PevecKristin PiroRachelle RakJoe Aaron ReidAngie SchworerSabrina SloanSarrah Strimel and Katie Webber.
