New Musical Catch Me If You Can To Open On Broadway Next Year

Well it looks like the 2010-2011 Broadway season is shaping up to be a big one. Following the recent announcement that Priscilla Queen of the Desert will open at the Palace Theatre in Spring 2011 comes the news that another screen to stage transfer will also make it's Broadway debut.

Catch Me If You Can, a new musical based on the 2002 film of the same name, will begin previews at the Neil Simon Theatre on March 7, 2011 with opening night set for April 10, 2011.

The show which first premiered in 2009 at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre will feature a score by Tony winners Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman.

Directing the show is two-time Tony winner Jack O'Brien with choreography by fellow Tony winner Jerry Mitchell. All four men previously collaborated on Hairspray which won the 2003 Tony Award for Best Musical and enjoyed a six year run on Broadway.

Will lighting strike twice? Now while I have never seen the film I expect the show to do very well and be a big contender at next years Tony Awards. We will soon find out. Until next time theatre fans.
