Are you getting into the spirit of Valentine's Day? If so, take your sweetie to a pre-Valentine date night in downtown Philadelphia to see the Kimmel Broadway series CATCH ME IF YOU CAN is at the Academy of Music!
Event: The Broadway Musical Catch Me If You Can
Where: Philadelphia's Academy of Music
When: Tuesday, January 15 - Sunday, January 20
Based on the hit DreamWorks film and the incredible true story that inspired it, Catch Me If You Can is the high-flying, splashy new Broadway musical that tells the story of Frank W. Abagnale, Jr., a teenager who runs away from home in search of the glamorous life.
Frank successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor, and a lawyer—living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. But when his lies catch the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty, Carl chases Frank to the end...and finds something he never expected.
This delightfully entertaining musical has been created by a Tony Award®-winning 'dream team,' with a book by Terrence McNally (The Full Monty, Ragtime), a swinging score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray), choreography by Jerry Mitchell (Hairspray, Legally Blonde), and direction by Jack O'Brien (Hairspray, The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels). Don't miss this big-hearted musical adventure based on an astonishing real-life story of being young, in love...and in deep, deep trouble.
