Based on the unbelievable true story of one of the most famous con artists in history, Frank Abagnale Jr. (Brian Farnham), Catch Me If You Can is a rousing musical set in the 1960’s. We begin as Frank is captured by FBI Agent Carl Hanratty (Adam Woolsey), after years of pursuit. Frank, however, thinks the audience deserves to hear his version of the truth, and narrates his life as a hip teenager who runs away from home in search of the glamorous life. With nothing more than his boyish charm and imagination and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank successfully cons his way past people assuming a multitude of identities: airplane pilot, doctor, and lawyer, to name a few. This fast paced and rollicking musical, directed by Jane Falion and John Dale Smith as music director, tells the tale of an ingenious, yet lonely, young man looking for his place in the world.
Other cast members include: Bob Purosky, Megham Eldred, Taylor Rupp, Laura Croff, Ben Holzhausen, Isaac Orr, Austin Elieff, Zachary Riley, Jeremy Leonard, Aja Jenks, Christine Ciucanu, Sarah Hayner and Kelly Lofton.
Catch Me If You Can opened at Broadway‘s Neil Simon Theatre in April of 2011. The production received four Tony Awards nominations, including one for Best Musical, and winning for Best Actor in a Musical.
