Broadway Musical Catch Me If You Can Now On Sale

That's right theatre fans. One of this season's most highly anticipated new shows is now on sale. Catch Me If You Can is set to begin previews at the Neil Simon Theatre on March 7 with opening night scheduled for April 10. The show which first premiered at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre in late 2009 features a score Tony winners Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman who scored a big hit nine years ago with Hairspray.

They will be joined by fellow Tony winners and Hairspray alum Jack O'Brien (Director) and Jerry Mitchell (Choreographer). Will lighting strike twice? Of all the new musicals coming in I think it has a good shot if you ask me. Now believe it or not but I have never seen the movie. Maybe that's a good thing. Maybe I will check it out after I see the show. Now for those of you like me that are not familiar with the story here is a brief synopsis from a production source.

"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."

Sounds interesting to me. How about you? I for one hope it does well as Broadway could really use a big fat hit. Keep your fingers crossed. By the way for those of you that want to see the show you have come to the right place.
