There's a small degree of difference between brave and just plain lucky. The true story of Frank Abagnale, Jr., the wildly successful con man who faked active professions as a doctor, lawyer and pilot (before he turned 21), became a well-known story thanks to Leonardo DiCaprio flashing his famous mug in Steven Spielberg's 2002 film (adapted from Abagnale's autobiography, published in 1980). And as all good stories go, it was bound to find reincarnations on as many platforms as possible—leading us to the award-winning musical version of Catch Me if You Can, which opened on Broadway in 2011. Follow the fearless (or insanely lucky) young Frank as he fools folks right and left with his charm, wit and quick improvisational skills—all with the FBI right behind him, scrambling to keep up. Get to the Center an hour early for an interactive pre-show with photos, games and prizes.
