Catch Me If You Can
8:00 p.m.
Kalita Humphreys Theater
2.0 Miles from Museum Tower

Uptown Players continues its 2015 season with the 2011 Tony nominated musical Catch Me If You Can. Catch Me If You Can captures the astonishing story of Frank Abagnale, Jr., 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, take off on a jet-setting, cat and mouse chase, as a jazzy, swinging-sixties score keeps this adventure in constant motion. In the end, Agent Hanratty learns he and Frank aren't so very different after all, and Frank find out what happens when love catches up to a man on the run.
