Catch Me If You Can

Completing our season is another South Bay theatre premiere: Catch Me if You Can. This lively musical tells the true story of Frank Abagnale Jr., a world-class con artist who successfully passed himself off as a doctor, lawyer and jet pilot.
After it opened on Broadway in 2011, Catch Me was nominated for four Tony awards and six Drama Desk Awards. This witty and modern musical is an entertaining musical telling of the charming Abagnale's evasions of a bumbling FBI agent - but will love catch him first?
