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
Goldstar Member Tips
Bring a warm sweater for the outdoor theatre
Some day I will try valet parking. I usually have to park very far away.
Bring your own intermission snacks/candy, very pricey ($3 for a small bag of M&M's)

The stage actor who played Richard III gave an amazing performance. I would have preferred stage backdrops, props, and costumes specific to the Middle Ages rather than the more modern twist. The play was a feast for the ears but not so much a feast for the eyes.

Quotes & Highlights
- Meet the cast of Old Globe's 2012 Shakepeare Festival in this video.
Richard III is one of the most diabolical and outrageous villains in all of literature. A ruthless Machiavellian, the brilliant and power-hungry lord embarks on a bloody campaign to seize and keep the English crown. Shakespeare paints an unforgettable portrait of obsession, seduction, betrayal and a man who would be king.
