CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, based on the swinging, adventurous Steven Spielberg film, shifts the narrative focus of this real life tall tale to the television-drenched imagination of 18 year old Frank Abagnale, Jr.

In the blink of an eye our irresistible young hero manages to convince the world that he is a Pan Am pilot, a doctor AND a lawyer while simultaneous cashing millions of dollars in forged checks. With a score that celebrates the glorious big band sounds of Tom Jones and Frank Sinatra “spectaculars," and a production style that captures the brash optimism of that same 1960's television world, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN explores the father/son drama which inspired Frank Jr.’s masquerade and the FBI agent who chased him, caught him, and finally redeemed him.
