Catch Me if you Can on Broadway

Catch Me if you Can on Broadway |  Broadway, New York |  Last night I was invited to see the preview of Catch me if you Can, the news musical opening in Broadway in only 4 days. Although there was a WHOLE show behind our seat, that I am not going to dish about now (but trust me was way funnier than the play itself). By the producers of Hair Spray and based on the DreamWorks Motion Picture. After this show, now I fully understand why Pan Am Airways went on bankruptcy. I would have to say that after an USD 18 glass of red wine at the Lounge of the Neil Simon Theater, the second part of the show was my absolute favorite. Norbert Leo Burtz – Agent Carl Hanratty, Aaron Tveit – Frank Abagnale Jr, Linda Hart – Carol Strong and Kerry Butler – Cheryl Ann stole the show with the best performances to my respect.

Frank W. Abagnale, one of the world’s leading authorities on secure documents, fraud and embezzlement. The story of his son, a teenager who runs away from home in search of the glamorous life. With nothing more than a boyish charm, a big imagination and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor and a lawyer – living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. During almost 3 hours you will get lost into his own turbulent fantasies and delusions, with a end that, although very predictable very catching and entertaining.
