Based on the hit movie of the same name comes this new musical from Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman

Why See Catch Me If You Can?

As a teenage runaway from a broken home, Frank ditches high school in pursuit of the American dream. To survive, he masquerades as a Pan Am pilot, a doctor and a lawyer (and cashes millions of dollars in bad checks!) all before the age of 19.

Based on a true story, Frank's high-flying adventure of luxury and beautiful women won't cover the bill to put his family back together, and as his schemes become more fantastic he begins to lose himself in his own game.

With each con he pulls off, a dedicated FBI agent named Carl Hanratty is one step closer to the ultimate catch: the real Frank Abagnale, Jr.
