The official YouTube account for Catch Me If You Can uploaded the above video today, featuring Aaron Tveit and the show’s dancers in a new TV slot for the musical. The song playing is “Rumour Has It,” courtesy of the hugely popular Brit songstress, Adele. It’s very similar to the other commercial for Catch Me, but fans may want to check it out anyhow.

June 15, 2011 • Category: Catch Me If You Can, General News, Public Appearances 0

Those who attended the performance of Catch Me If You Can last night, June 14th, got an extra special surprise when the company hang around a while after. The reason? Norbert Leo Butz – dismayed that he had left off an important set of “thank yous” from his Tony acceptance speech on Sunday – had words left to say. He called these four minutes a reacceptance of his Tonys, thanking those part of the Catch Me team, and taking extra time out to specifically thank Aaron Tveit. It’s a really beautiful speech, heartfelt in only the way NLB can be, and worth a watch. Congrats again to Norbert for the big win!

New Interview with Broadway Channel

A new interview featuring Aaron Tveit, conducted by Broadway Channel, has surfaced. In it, he talks about Catch Me If You Can, including how nostalgic it is as a production while simultaneously modern in its delivery. At about one minute, it’s a very short interview, but definitely worth checking out. I’ve also added HQ screen caps to the Gallery.

Aaron Sings “Goodbye” at Macy’s Herald Square

This news is a couple of days old now, but I debated posting about it as I don’t believe any of the videos are professionally shot. That said, Aaron Tveit – along with Tom Wopat and Kerry Butler – performed at Macy’s Herald Square on Thursday, June 2nd. It was part of a campaign to get shoppers in the store: the first 25 to spend $200 in the men’s department received tickets to see Catch Me If You Can. Aaron sang “Goodbye” from the musical, and you can check out footage of the performance above. There are also a couple of other videos, which you can see here (check out Kerry swaying in the background!) and here.
