RIALTO CHATTER: Butz, Tveit Set for Bway's CATCH ME IF YOU CAN?

According to a report by Variety, Broadway veterans Norbert Leo Butz and Aaron Tveit might be reprising their roles in the upcoming Broadway production of CATCH ME IF YOU CAN. The duo played conman Frank Abagnale and FBI agent Carl Hanratty in the Seattle premiere in 2009. Though Butz is set to star in MIRACULOUS YEAR, if HBO picks up the series, shooting will not begin before the spring opening of CATCH ME IF YOU CAN.

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN will open on Broadway at The Neil Simon Theatre, 250 W. 52nd Street, on Sunday, April 10, 2011. Preview performances begin Monday, March 7, 2011. This new musical, created by a team of Tony winners, features a book by Terrence McNally, music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman, choreography by Jerry Mitchell and is directed by Jack O'Brien. Casting and additional design team will be announced shortly.

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.

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN opened at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre for a limited engagement from July 23 - August 14, 2009.

Ticket information, including on sale date and point of purchase, will be announced at a later date.
