Based on the hit film and the incredible true story, Catch Me If You Can is about chasing your dreams and not getting caught. Nominated for four Tony awards, including Best Musical, this delightfully entertaining show was created by a Tony Award-winning “dream team,” with a book by Terrence McNally (The Full Monty, Ragtime) and a swinging score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray).

"For MTW's enjoyable production of CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, director Larry Raben keeps things light and airy, keeping even the serious moments not so dire, and reminding me again just how underrated this show is amongst other movie-based stage musicals."

"With precise direction by Larry Rabin, toe-tapping musical direction by Dennis Castellano, and luscious eye-candy choreography by Peggy Hickey, Catch Me is a musical extravaganza employing 23 performers in 21 scenes, packed tightly into two acts, with over a dozen and-a-half song and dance numbers."

"The show is part fun, part object lesson, and, given Musical Theatre West's treatment by director Raben, an audience pleaser. It makes a nice addition to MTW's 66th season."

"Some sexual content and a “Crime Almost Pays” message make Musical Theatre West’s latest too PG-13 for the kiddies, but for grownups in the mood for some Vegas-worthy pizzazz (and a story that may even tug at your heartstrings along the way), Catch Me If You Can can’t be beat."

"A great story? Most certainly it is. But what makes this production so great is not just the story, but the way it is presented."
