Editorial Reviews

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN is the sparkling new musical comedy based on the hit DreamWorks film and the incredible true story that inspired it! Behind the magic is a Tony Award®-winning team - CATCH ME features a book by TERRENCE McNALLY (The Full Monty), a score by MARC SHAIMAN & SCOTT WITTMAN (Hairspray), choreography by JERRY MITCHELL (Hairspray, Legally Blonde) and direction by JACK O'BRIEN (Hairspray, The Full Monty).

AARON TVEIT (Next to Normal) stars as Frank W. Abagnale, Jr., an American teenager who runs away from home in search of a glamorous new life. Using nothing but his boyish charm and some phony checks, Frank successfully poses as a globe-trotting pilot, an ER doctor, and a hotshot lawyer - and gets a true taste of the high life! Tony winner NORBERT LEO BUTZ (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) is Agent Carl Hanratty, the determined FBI agent who's hot on Frank's trail. Don't miss this dazzling and hilarious new musical about being young, in love... and in deep trouble!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Broadway recording and score July 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you like old-fashioned glitzy musicals, this one is for you. I've seen the show twice and will try to see it again before it closes. The music and lyrics are smart and classy and given a first-rate production on this CD. Marc Shaiman who has arranged for Harry Connick keeps the tunes coming in the style of Sinatra or Dean Martin and the album is very pleasant to listen to. Maybe Connick will record a few of these tunes and make them his own. A few of these songs were sent out on a preview CD with a flyer for the show. They sounded good on the preview CD but they have been re-recorded with a full orchestra and what a difference. They pop! The cast is terrific. This is going to sound like heresy but I found Book Of Mormon to be wildly overrated. No so with one, which for some reason the critics ignored, I guess because it was not the flavor of the month. See the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best musical of 2011 July 19, 2011
By Mawrdew
Format:Audio CD
We (my husband, my son and his wife) saw Catch Me If You Can several hours after seeing The Book Of Mormon. While Mormon was certainly pleasurable, especially for its shock value, we all agreed that Catch Me was the better show. Truly an old-fashioned musical, something rarely seen on Broadway these days outside revivals. My son and his wife are HUGE Southpark fans and they felt the same way we old farts did.
Don't miss this show if you're in NYC!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Every Song is A Hit! August 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love broadway musicals, but it's not everyday that you can find a cast recording album that you enjoy thoroughly, in a sense that every song is so wonderful to listen to. To me, Catch Me If You Can is this kind of rare occurrence, and thus I highly recommend it. I enjoy listening to every single song on this album.

When I saw the show, I knew that I had to get the album. The scores are beautiful and provide a good number of variety. You have the energetic songs such as "Live in Living Colors," "Jet Set," and "Doctor's Orders." And then you have slow and touching songs such as "Seven Wonders" and "Fly Fly Away." Then amazingly, there are songs that have a versatile feel to them, such as "Someone Else's Skin," which starts beautifully soft and slow and turns into sort of a contemporary fast song. "Goodbye," which is sang beautifully, provides an old-fashioned grand broadway tone, but then also follows a fast-tempo orchestration, and it's a very unique and wonderful mix. Most importantly, no matter what kind of songs, fast or slow, these songs are very catchy, they get stuck in your mind easily, in a good way of course, and you will find yourself singing or humming them.

The cast's performance (and voices) for this production is fantastic. Aaron Tveit sings with perfect enunciation, I could understand and follow the lyrics (and pretty much the plot) very well. He has great control of power when he sings, and really carries out the songs beautifully. I was absolutely blown away with his performance and portrayal of Frank Abagnale, Jr., and his recording on this album is flawless, as he is in live performance. Norbert Leo Butz has a great voice that can be soft and raspy at times, such as the comical number "Don't Break the Rules.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding!!! July 15, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
We saw Catch Me If You Can on Broadway last week (which was magnificent), and loved the music so much we picked up this CD. The producers of the CD did an outstanding job of not just capturing the extraordinarily high quality of the music as it was presented on stage, but their detail extends to giving you every lyric, identifying which character and chorus that delivered it, in the included CD booklet. I can't recommend the CD (or the show!) highly enough.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Glitz August 1, 2011
By Janean
Format:Audio CD
I really wanted to like the cast album for Catch Me If You Can. I haven't seen the show, beyond little previews on YouTube and the Tonys, but I can tell the songs rely on lively (and leggy) choreography. The songs certainly don't stand on their own. The lyrics, by Hairspray's Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman, have very little of the cynic wit that makes Hairspray a standout. This music is slick with its mid-century non-rock pastiches: Frankie Sinatra big band, Laurence Welk family music, even some film-noir smoky detective melody. It's well orchestrated, perhaps too much so. Much of the sentiment feels closer to lounge lizard schmaltz. Even Kerry Butler's solo is repetitive. The most enjoyable song for me is Little Boy, Be A Man - a swaggering venting (boasting?) of whose father was worse - Detective Carl's or Frank Sr.'s? I also like the clothing-makes-the-man song The Pinstripes Are All That They See, delivered with bad-boy confidence by Tom Wopat. The CD is not a bad listen, and I'm sure it's a great souvenir of the stage show, but I can't help feeling that Shaiman is capable of better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Already one of the most underrated musicals of all time!! November 10, 2012
Format:Audio CD
My partner and I saw CATCH ME IF YOU CAN in March of 2011, while it was in its preview stages. We knew a little bit about the show as we had read about and seen clips of the pre-Broadway tryout in Seattle, but had mixed feelings on it. My partner had never seen the 2002 movie, but I absolutely loved it and while I was still a little concerned that yet ANOTHER movie was being made into a stage show, we both decided to give it a chance.

Maybe it was because my expectations were average, but the show well exceeded my expectations and I fell in love with it! It was truly energetic and completely classic with a truly strong score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Whitman, whom, I felt, still hit it out of the park in the same vein they did with HAIRSPRAY. The cast was strong with Aaron Tveit leading the show with pure charm and an absolutely killer singing voice but the show was definitely stolen by Norbert Leo Butz, who ended up winning the Tony for Best Actor while Tveit wasn't even nominated (tough year). Mr. Butz' playing this role had me concerned at first as he didn't fit any perception of which I envisioned Carl Hanratty (thanks to Tom Hanks), plus I had always been mixed by him as a performer. However, he flat out stole the show. While you may not be impressed listening to him on the recording, his performance benefited from seeing him live as he was the true definition of the "scene-stealing, character actor".
