Catch Me If You Can

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 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.

Two-time Tony Award nominee and one-time Duke of Hazzard Tom Wopat brings a five week concert series to the charming Upper East Side eatery and saloon The Beach Café, and his opening night was a memorable night of Manhattan magic.
by Stephen Sorokoff - Oct 24, 2019
A musical coincidence occurred in Manhattan last night. Marilyn Maye was swinging on the West Side at Feinstein's/54 Below and Tom Wopat was doing the same on the East Side at the Beach Cafe. They are a bit similar in Night Club performance. I'm purposely using the word Night Club as opposed to Cabaret because both singers just sing their well chosen song list while exciting you musically with their great voices, jazz infused phrasing, and the secret sauce of being able to Swing. No theme or “theatrical” show here, it's just the extraordinary ability to interpret a song that keeps your eyes and ears focused on the performer from the opening to the closing notes.

On Saturday August 10, singer/actor Derek Klena, now a popular leading man on Broadway, returned to his California roots to present his first live LA concert on the El Portal Mainstage. To say it clicked, is an understatement. I have seen Klena perform since 2009 when he came in a runnerup in LA's Next Great Stage Star. He is handsome, charming, a real promising performer who comes from a warm West Covina family. Maybe it's because of these roots, that he is as successful as he is right now. He adores his caring mother and father and two siblings Lauren and Dylan. Though married to his high chool sweetheart and living in NYC, he returns regularly to celebrate birthdays and holidays with the family or to see his brother Dylan perform on local stages.
