Catch Me If You Can
Catch Me If You Can has been written by Terrence McNally and its music has been composed by the great team of Hairspray fame, Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman. The story of the musical relates the life of the con artist, Frank Abagnale Jr., who had duped the world and carried out millions of dollars. The storyline of the theatrical production is along the same lines as the plot of the film released in 2002 and went by the same name. Both of them are adaptations of the autobiography (1980) of Abnagale. The musical was first showed in 2009 in Seattle and then in April of this year, it was first showed on the Broadway stage of Neil Simon Theatre.
Catch Me If You Can consists of two acts. In the first act, Frank is caught by the FBI agent, Hanratty, at the Miami International Airport. Frank then goes on to tell his story to the world. He tells that he became a con when he was in school and was made fun of because of his poverty. He first impersonated his French teacher in school. Then when his parents fought over custody of him, he felt distraught and lonely and ran away from home. Over the years, he learnt to write fake checks and as a result amassed millions of dollars. Later he faked his way into Pan American World Airways as a co-pilot. Meanwhile the FBI was after him regarding the fake checks. He was able to dodge them by acting as an FBI agent himself.
In the second act of Catch Me If You Can, Frank tells that he posed as a doctor and got a job at a hospital. There he fell in love with a nurse, Brenda. Brenda took him to meet her parents, Roger and Carol where he lied to them that he was a priest, a lawyer and a doctor. They did not believe him but they gave their permission and Brenda and Frank got engaged. After the engagement, when Frank got to know that the FBI was onto him, he told Brenda the truth about his identity and his plan to run away. He told her that he would come back for her later. However, Hanratty was able to get Brenda to tell on Frank which brings the story to where it started, that is the airport. Hearing of his father’s death, Frank surrenders to the FBI, is sentenced to fifteen year imprisonment. However, after seven years in prison, Frank is released. Hanratty hires him to help catch other con artists. Towards the end of the play, Hanratty forms a partnership with Frank.

One of the most entertaining stories to have adapted by the Broadway, it definitely should not be missed. So get your Catch Me If You Can tickets and be prepared to be have a great evening out!
