CATCH ME IF YOU CAN Tour Flies Into Houston's Hobby Center, Now thru 2/10

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 Frank Abagnale's New York Times bestselling autobiography, published by Broadway Paperbacks, and the hit 2002 film of the same name directed by Steven Spielberg with screenplay by Jeff Nathanson and book by Frank Abagnale, Jr.
Nominated for four Tony Awards and six Drama Desk Awards, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN features a Tony Award-winning creative team, with a book by Terrence McNally (THE FULL MONTY, RAGTIME), an irresistible score by Marc Shaiman & Scott Wittman (HAIRSPRAY), choreography by Jerry Mitchell (HAIRSPRAY, LEGALLY BLONDE) and direction by Jack O'Brien (HAIRSPRAY, THE FULL MONTY, DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS).
Scenic design for CATCH ME IF YOU CAN is by David Rockwell (HAIRSPRAY), costume design by five-time Tony Award winner William Ivey Long (THE PRODUCERS), lighting design is by Tony Award winner Kenneth Posner (WICKED) and sound design is by Peter McBoyle.
