This high-flying musical comedy is based on the unbelievable true story of one of the most famous con artists in history, Frank Abagnale Jr., and the hit film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks. Catch Me If You Can is a rousing musical set during the jet-set age of the 1960s.

Seeking fame and fortune, precocious teenager, Frank, runs away from home to begin an unforgettable adventure. With nothing more than his boyish charm, a big imagination, and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor, and a lawyer over the course of several years – living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. But when Frank's lies catch the attention of a sleuthing FBI agent, an epic chase across the globe ensues.

Catch Me If You Can is a big and bright musical with high-energy dance numbers and a riveting story. This splashy spectacle was nominated for four Tony awards, including Best Musical. The delightfully entertaining show was created by a Tony Award-winning "dream team," with a book by Terrence McNally (The Full Monty, Ragtime) and a swinging score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray, Some Like it Hot).
