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

Watson was wonderful! great storyteller!

It was a very pleasant show.
Doctor Watson has,certainly,received his due.
He was impossibly believable and touchingly charming.
And so was an "Indian"narrator.
Holmes did not disappoint me either, but that what one expects him
He made his vices look rather innocent and seductive.
Supporting ladies were very lovely and precise and at times threatened to steal
The trick with the dog was extremely ingenious and witty.

I loved the small intimate theater and the actors were fantastic. We went on a Sunday afternoon and then had dinner across the street at Francesca's. Wonderful afternoon date. We plan on becoming subscribers to the theater and are looking forard to seeing Sleepy Hallow this fall.

Quotes & Highlights
- McCabe’s two previous adaptations of Sherlock Holmes material, Holmes and Watson and The Hound of the Baskervilles, were both Jeff-nominated in the Best Adaptation category.
"Detection is, or ought to be, an exact science," Holmes tells Watson, "and ought to be treated in the same cold and unemotional manner." Thank heavens Watson ignored him; the good doctor's natural storytelling gifts make this one of the greatest Holmes tales.
Cast: Don Bender, Jerry Bloom, Linsey Falls, David Fink, Nick Goodman, Greg Kolack, Drew Longo, Brian Pastor, Ed Rutherford, Andrew Shapiro, Judy Lea Steele, and Shawna Tucker
About the Ticket Supplier: City Lit Theater Company
City Lit was founded in 1979 and incorporated in 1980 by Arnold Aprill, David Dillon, and Lorell Wyatt. At the time it was the only theatre in the nation devoted to stage adaptations of literary material, a form that has since become quite popular. Over 30 seasons, City Lit has explored fiction, non-fiction, poetry, biography, essays, and drama in performance, and presented a wide array of voices, from classic writers such as Henry James, Edith Wharton, Oliver Goldsmith, Mark Twain, Colette, and P. G. Wodehouse to such contemporary writers as Alice Walker, W.P. Kinsella, Lynda Barry, Raymond Carver, Edward Albee and Ruth Prawer Jhabvala. As an Illinois not-for-profit corporation and a 501(c)3 federal tax-exempt organization, it keeps its ticket prices below the actual cost of operation and production, and depends on the support of those who share its belief in the beauty and power of the spoken written word.
