Catch Me...Before I close ~ Disappointing & Boring!, Apr 01, 2011
reviewer: TJ from NYC
It just doesn't work as a musical!
As the star of the show~Aaron Tveit is a fine
singer very cute indeed but he can not hold the
piece together due to his weak stage presence and
is totally not believable as a con man.
Norbert Leo Butz drags it along as the character
man adding some solidly acted and sung moments.
Tom Woppat looks terribly disinterested as his Dad
but sings it nicely if a bit hoarse. Both Moms
portrayed are the best things in the show;sultry
Rachel DeBenedet stunningly graces the stage and
sings beautifully.Linda Hart's small but memorable
role is sung w/ much brass n sass adding much
humor. Both have the best looking costumes in a
show that looks ugly, shadowy & bland...lacking
the pop-fun sex appeal of the 60's.The large
unsexy ensemble brightly smiles but the women have
the most unflattering styled wigs.
The score is ok w/a few catchy n bouncy period
tunes.Kerry Butler's \"Fly Fly Away\" is
powerfully sung and is the only Showstopper!

Loved it, Mar 17, 2011
reviewer: Lisa from Chicago
If you are coming to NY and you can only see one show, this is the show to see! I see broadway shows a couple of times a month and this is in my top 5 of all times. Everyone in the cast is a triple threat, they are uber talented. The music is great, the choreography is fantasic and tight and the acting is superb. See this show in previews before you can't get seats. I predict that this will win the Tony for best musical!

Catch this show!, Mar 16, 2011
reviewer: Nancie Wingo from Santa Fe, NM
Catch Me If You Can had me at hello! This is what
you hope to experience in a Broadway musical; great
music, big dance numbers, fun costumes, clever story
telling, an escape from the real world!
Norbert Leo Butz and Aaron Tveit are to Broadway
what Paul Newman and Robert Redford were to film.
