CATCH ME IF YOU CAN

Based on the hit DreamWorks film and the incredible true story that inspired it, the first national tour of the high-flying Broadway musical CATCH ME IF YOU CAN will land in Dallas, Texas, presented by Dallas Summer Musicals at the Music Hall at Fair Park for a limited engagement February 12-24, 2013.  Single tickets will be priced from $15-$85 at The Box Office, 5959 Royal Lane, and all Ticketmaster locations, or online at www.ticketmaster.com.  For groups of 15 or more, call 214-426-GROUP (4768).

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN captures the astonishing true 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, we're 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 finds out what happens when love catches up to a man on the run.

 

This engagement follows hot on the heels of the recent Broadway run, where the show received considerable acclaim.  The New York Times exclaims, “Hot diggity!  This portrait of the con artist as a young man comes to ecstatic life.”  WOR Radio calls it “absolutely marvelous” and proclaims CATCH ME IF YOU CAN “a real Broadway musical with showstoppers to enthrall just about everyone.”  And Vanity Fair says “CATCH ME will move you to live life to the fullest and dance past anything standing in your way,” and urges “Get your seats now!”

 

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN is based on Frank Abagnale’s New York Times bestselling autobiography, published by Broadway Paperbacks, and the hit 2002 film of the same name directed by Steven Spielberg with screenplay by Jeff Nathanson and book by Frank Abagnale, Jr.

Nominated for four Tony® Awards and six Drama Desk Awards, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN features a Tony Award-winning creative team, with a book by Terrence McNally (The Full Monty, Ragtime), an irresistible score by Marc Shaiman & Scott Wittman (Hairspray), choreography by Jerry Mitchell (Hairspray, Legally Blonde) and direction by Jack O’Brien (Hairspray, The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels).

 

All performances will be held at the Music Hall at Fair Park, opening at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12 and continuing through Sunday, Feb. 24, with matinees at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16; Sunday, Feb. 17; Thursday, Feb. 21; Saturday, Feb. 23 and Sunday, Feb. 24.  There will be no evening performance Sunday, Feb. 24.

Tips to survive Valentine’s Day, if you are alone:

 

Do not define yourself  by your relationship status. Your identity is much bigger than that.

 

If you are single due to a recent loss/ divorce, do not pretend that this is not a hard day. Get the support that you need.

 

Treat yourself to something special: spa/ movie/ food.

 

Avoid love triggers; such as romantic movie and love songs. They may sadden you and make you feel worse.

 

Have your own Valentine party and gather your friends and family. This way you are surrounded by love.
