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

Very funny show. Creative.

Mike shared with us his own movie-making experiences, comparing & contrasting them to Jesus & those movies made about him ! No small task - but honest & thought-provoking, whether you were Christian or Jew, or neither ! Small space adds to the enjoyment & good work with the projected images as well. Only negative was trouble finding street parking as neighborhood is totally residential.

I attended the 4/20/12 performance. This is a wonderful evening of theater - Mike Schlitt is a brilliant and clever storyteller. His interwoven tale of a the making of 'his' Jesus movie, contrasted with his perspective of 'Jesus' movies; and shared with the perspective of a middle-aged man struggling his relationship with his father had me feeling completely related with this man.
You will feel it too - and while you don't have to be Jewish, you'll see yourself if you are... Mike, thanks for the popcorn - great touch!
BTW - get there as early as you can. I found the street parking situation to be quite challenging, bordering on frustrating in this neighborhood.

An incredible one-man show where the writer/actor takes us on a wonderful journey through his personal experience of Jesus through film and life. The show is clever, subtle and funny, with an incredible performance by the writer himself. Highly recommended for those who appreciate their humor delivered with a dose of history, trivia, and philosophy.
