I really enjoyed the national tour of Catch Me If You Can that came to Minneapolis a few years ago. Although this offer isn’t for a national tour, you can see this highly entertaining show from Black Box Theatre on the cheap with discount tickets from Goldstar.
What’s a boy to do when his parents are breaking up, he doesn’t know where to turn and he can’t get comfortable in his own skin? If you’re Frank Abagnale, Jr., the subject of Catch Me If You Can, the answer is simple: Slip into someone else’s skin! The teenager impersonated a doctor, a lawyer and an airline pilot, and passed $2.5 million worth of forged checks over the span of more than five years, all while being hunted by the FBI. Inspired by a true story — as depicted in the bestselling book and hit Leonardo DiCaprio film with the same title — energetic musical Catch Me If You Can gives Frank a chance to tell the audience his side of the story. You’ll get an earful of just the kind of flash and dazzle you’d expect from one of the world’s most successful impostors. The musical caper gets underway at the Black Box Theatre in Burnsville’s Ames Center.
