Catch Me If You Can Entertains But Won’t Stick With You
Once upon the 1960s, there existed theatrical offerings on Broadway unapologetically called the tired businessman’s musical. They were well-made, well-executed but unassuming diversions that left audiences feeling they had been transiently entertained if not especially moved, inspired or provoked to reflection. Ironically set in the same period, the 2011 musical Catch Me If You Can unintentionally qualifies for the category as evidenced by the peppy road show making its South Florida debut at the Kravis Center’s stand-alone Broadway series.
Kravis on Bway: Catch Me If You Can, Maroulis in Jekyll & Hyde, Priscilla, Poppins, Billy Elliot, Jersey Boys
By choosing its own schedule, the Kravis Center has several titles in its 2012-2013 slate of musicals on national tours that you won’t see at the Broward Center or the Arsht Center as the sole regional venue offering the musicals Catch Me If You Can,and a revival of Frank Wildhorn’s Jekyll & Hyde starring Constantine Maroulis. In addition to the new Priscilla Queen of the Desert, more familiar offerings are returns to South Florida of Mary Poppins, Jersey Boys and Billy Elliot
