VIDEO: Aaron Tveit Reunites With DISASTER!'s Kerry Butler For a CATCH ME IF YOU CAN Duet

After replacement gigs in HAIRSPRAY and WICKED, the talented singer/actor Aaron Tveit really started setting Broadway hearts aflutter rocking out as Gabe, the irrepressible son in the Pulitzer Prize winning musical NEXT TO NORMAL.

He's been seen on the small screen on The CW's drama series "Gossip Girl" and as Danny Zuko in Fox's "Grease Live!" and played Enjolras in the 2012 film adaptation of LES MISERABLES.

But his biggest Broadway role was playing the real life Frank Abagnale, the young con artist who forged checks and managed to pass himself off as a doctor and an airline pilot before getting arrested, in CATCH ME IF YOU CAN.

His innocent love interest in that one was Kerry Butler, currently belting out 70s pop classics in the hilarious musical comedy, DISASTER!

Last night Tveit and Butler were reunited for a post-performance duet of their CATCH ME IF YOU CAN love duet, "Seven Wonders," by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, as part of DISASTER!'s fundraising series for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, #DisasterRelief.

Coming to Broadway, come hell or high water is the new musical comedy Disaster!. Earthquakes, tidal waves, infernos and rampant wildlife can't stop an outrageous cast of characters from dancing, gambling and singing the night away aboard New York's first floating casino and discothèque. Disaster! features some of the most memorable pop, rock and disco hits of the 1970s, including "Hot Stuff," "I Am Woman," "Knock On Wood," "Daybreak" and more.
