Reviews

Catch Me if You Can the musical flew onto Broadway in April 2011 and ran for over 200 performances and is now on tour throughout the US. The show received critical praise and was nominated for four Tony Awards and actor Norbert Leo Butz took home the award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical

Here is what the audience members had to say about the Broadway show:

“…From the first song, “Live in Living Color,” the musical put a smile on my face, and I knew that I would love the entire performance. The song’s title served as a perfect description of Catch Me If You Can, as it was always a spectacular sight…Knowing that Marc Shaiman wrote the music, it is evident that Catch Me If You Can has similarities in style to Hairspray — another show involving Shaiman. These likenesses made for a very energetic and compelling production….I never wanted the final song to conclude, and seriously considered how I might get the cast to perform an encore. When the actors exited the stage after their bows, my only consolation was the hope of buying the show’s soundtrack.” THE FEATHER – Fresno Christian High School read more

    The show is GREAT! It’s an old fashion Big Broadway musical. Dancings and a grand ensemble. Saw it last night in Hollywood. Can’t wait to take my kids.

    I was lucky enough to catch the show’s run on Broadway and immediately fell in love. I’ve been a long-standing fan of the original book by Frank Abagnale and Stan Redding, as well as a fan of the 2002 Spielberg-directed film. This is a story that resonates me with, and I’m pleased to say that the musical adaptation continued to portray the story as both highly entertaining and emotionally powerful.

    The writing is witty; the songs are fun, catchy, clever, and powerful. But this is a musical with a heart. Telling a story about fear, family, escape, and truth, I fell in love all over again with the characters and this powerful story of redemption.

    The original cast was astonishing (particularly, of course, Tveit and Butz), but I encourage everyone who gets the opportunity to go and see this show. I listen to my Broadway cast album at least once a week, and the songs never get old. My favorite musical!
