Based on the hit film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and the incredible true story that inspired it, new Broadway musical Catch Me If You Can follows the life of Frank W. Abagnale Jr., who uses charm, imagination and millions of dollars in forged checks to create his ideal future. Abagnale successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor and a lawyer -- and wins the girl of his dreams -- before FBI agent Carl Hanratty finally catches up to him. The Tony Award-winning "dream team" behind Catch Me If You Can includes playwright Terrence McNally (The Full Monty, Ragtime) and composers Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray). Learn More

Was able to shout, cheer, jeer and laugh out loud. Raucous fun.

Awesome experience! Equal doses of physical and mental action. Offers great insight into the phenomena of professional wrestling but has commentary that reaches far beyond it. There's also ample humor.

I had a great time seeing this play! The acting ( and this includes the physical acting required to do the wrestling moves ) was awesome! I lost count how many times we laughed. I recommend seeing this show if you can as tonight is the final night!

Great play, stellar performances. Gave me a new perspective on wrestle mania. A fun outing for wrestling fans and novices alike. The performance was five stars, but our seats required us to twist throughout the show to see the 'stage'. Might be best to request a seat in the center of one of the three sections, to avoid neck strain. Enjoy!

A Boston Premiere by Kristoffer Diaz
Directed by Shawn LaCount Having just won the Obie for Best New American Play, this Pulitzer finalist is as hilarious as it is relevant. Mace is a professional wrestler. He’s a really good professional wrestler. He’s not the champion though — that’s the impossibly charismatic Chad Deity. When Mace discovers a young Indian-American Brooklyn kid whose charisma rivals that of the champ, Mace decides to get him a job in the company. Only problem is, the boss has a very specific plan for the duo! A serious minded comedy about wrestling, geopolitics, and raisin bread.
