Des Moines Playhouse recently issued the following announcement.
The charm. The con. The chase.
With nothing more than his boyish charm, a big imagination, and millions of dollars in forged checks, precocious teenager Frank Abagnale, Jr. embarks on an exhilarating journey over the country.
The show begins with Frank trapped at the Miami International Airport by his longtime rival, FBI Agent Carl Hanratty. Frank uses this opportunity to tell his side of the story, starting with the escape from his childhood home to conning careers as a pilot, a doctor, and a lawyer.
Nominated for four Tony Awards in 2011, Catch Me If You Can’s source material comes from the 1980 autobiography of Frank Abagnale Jr. that inspired the 2002 film of the same name starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks. The true-story told with upbeat music and an unforgettable adventure is sure to excite audiences.
