Based on the hit film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and the incredible true story that inspired it, 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
f you attend, be advised that this venue is an outdoor amphitheater with very limited parking, requiring long walks up steep terrain to get to the venue itself. Bring a seat cushion, a blanket and a flashlight to find your way back to your car afterwards. The seats are hard plastic, narrow and the rows are steeply pitched. I felt like I was going to fall forward the whole time. People with back or leg problems should forgo this one. I don't think I'll attend another event at this venue.Catch Me If You Can info • Aug 19 2014 star this tip starred

I really enjoyed the experience. The acting, singing and dancing were great. I'd forgotten how long the show is. It was 3 hours with a half hour intermission after 21/2 hours. It was too long for my eleven year old dtr, especially at night. If your child loves musicals it is well worth it though.

This was my first time at a Woodminster event and I was impressed.
Parking ($5) was convienent. There was plenty of food for sale and there does not seem to be any rules against bringing in your own.
I saw the opening night performance,...continued
The universal story of tradition versus change is beautifully told in one of the most famous and popular musicals in Broadway history, Fiddler on the Roof. The tale of Tevye and his daughters, based on Sholem Sleichem’s short stories, is set in a poor Jewish village in Czarist Russia in the early years of the twentieth century. The themes are universal — tradition, family, love and marriage, resignation, regret, and optimism — and the characters are honest, funny, and memorable. Songs like “Sunrise, Sunset,” “If I Were A Rich Man,” and “Matchmaker” help tell this dramatic story in the best tradition of American Musical Theater.
The original Broadway production, with a cast including Zero Mostel and Beatrice Arthur, won 9 Tony awards, ran for 8 years, and was the first Broadway musical to surpass 3000 performances. It has had four Broadway revivals, a very successful 1971 film adaptation starring Topol, and continues to enjoy great international popularity.
