Should I See It?What is Catch Me If You Can Like?
This bright and bouncy show features a topnotch cast and a sixties-influenced score by the Hairspray team of Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. Narrated by Frank as if his story is a television special, Catch Me draws audiences in to his web of relationships with his parents, FBI agent Hanratty and eventually his girlfriend and her parents. Whether or not you’ve seen Steven Spielberg’s hit movie based the same subject matter, if you enjoy a comic caper, Catch Me If You Can is the musical to see.
Is Catch Me If You Can Good for Kids?
Although Catch Me If You Can is not a classic “family show,” there is nothing objectionable in the script and songs, and the musical’s peppy vibe will appeal to school-age kids. The lead character participates in some morally objectionable acts including fraud and forgery. The show contains some sexual situations.
