Based on the hit DreamWorks film and the incredible true story that inspired it, the first national tour of the high-flying Broadway musical CATCH ME IF YOU CAN will land in Detroit at the Fisher Theatre for a limited engagement, May 7-19. Tickets will go on sale Sunday, March 3 at 10 a.m. at all Ticketmaster locations, by phone at 1-800-982-2787, and online atwww.ticketmaster.com or www.broadwayindetroit.com. Starting at 10 a.m. on Monday, March 4, tickets will also be available for purchase at the Fisher Theatre box office.
CATCH ME IF YOU CAN captures the astonishing true story of Frank Abagnale, Jr., a world-class con artist who passed himself off as a doctor, a lawyer, and a jet pilot-all before the age of 21. With straight-arrow FBI agent Carl Hanratty on Frank's trail, we're off on a jet-setting, cat-and-mouse chase, as a jazzy, swinging-sixties score keeps this adventure in constant motion. In the end, Agent Hanratty learns he and Frank aren't so very different after all, and Frank finds out what happens when love catches up to a man on the run.
This engagement follows hot on the heels of the recent Broadway run, where the show received considerable acclaim. The New York Times exclaims, "Hot diggity! This portrait of the con artist as a young man comes to ecstatic life." WOR Radio calls it "absolutely marvelous" and proclaims CATCH ME IF YOU CAN "A real BROADWAY musical with showstoppers to enthrall just about everyone." And Vanity Fair says "CATCH ME will move you to live life to the fullest and dance past anything standing in your way," and urges "Get your seats now!"
CATCH ME IF YOU CAN is based on Frank Abagnale's New York Times bestselling autobiography, published by Broadway Paperbacks, and the hit 2002 film of the same name directed by Steven Spielberg with screenplay by Jeff Nathanson and book by Frank Abagnale, Jr.
