Frank W. Abagnale Jr., whose youthful adventures are the basis for the new Broadway musical Catch Me If You Can, will host an on stage, post-show talk backs and Q & As at the Neil Simon Theatre on Thursday, May 19 and June 2 following each 8pm performance.

The musical captures the astonishing true story of 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.

The show features a book by Terrence McNally, music by Marc Shaiman, and lyrics by Shaiman and Scott Wittman. The musical centers on a world-class con artist who is pursued by straight-arrow FBI agent.

Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz stars as Carl Hanratty and Aaron Tveit stars as Frank Abagnale, Jr. alongside Tom Wopat as Frank Abagnale, Sr., Kerry Butler as Brenda Strong, Rachel De Benedet as Paula Abagnale, Linda Hart as Carol Strong, and Nick Wyman as Roger Strong.

The cast also features Joe Cassidy, Timothy McCuen Piggee, Brandon Wardell, Sara Andreas, Alex Ellis, Will Erat, Jennifer Frankel, Lisa Gajda, Bob Gaynor, Kearran Giovanni, Nick Kenkel, Grasan Kingsberry, Michael X. Martin, Aleks Pevec, Kristin Piro, Rachelle Rak, Joe Aaron Reid, Angie Schworer, Sabrina Sloan, Sarrah Strimel, Charlie Sutton, Katie Webber and Candice Marie Woods.

Only ticketholders for that evening's performance will be able to attend the talk back. Abagnale previously hosted similar events on April 14 and May 12.
