On July 30th, a special guest decided to stop by Catch Me If You Can: Chace Crawford!

Aaron Talks ‘Catch Me’ to City Guide NY

July 26, 2011 • Category: Catch Me If You Can, General News, Stage Work 0

A new article from City Guide NY has been released featuring the production of Catch Me If You Can. In it, Aaron Tveit discusses his discipline while performing, including a strict no alcohol diet and regular relaxing visits to a massage parlor. Check out the piece below; it has also been added to the Press Archive.

Word of mouth — an underrated publicity bazooka if ever there was one — along with theatrical daredevil Norbert Leo Butz’s off-the-chart rendition of “Don’t Break the Rules” on the 2011 Tony Awards broadcast, has (most deservedly, I might add) swept the high-octane musical comedy Catch Me If You Can out of the shadows and into an ever-expanding spotlight that has first-time audiences exiting the show in a “yowza” state of mind and ticket sales in a hearty upward spiral.

“We’d been pretty much flying under the radar,” says leading man Aaron Tveit, who plays the pivotal role of Frank Abagnale, Jr., the true-life, world-class con-artist who managed to pull off impersonating a jet pilot, a doctor and an attorney — all before his 21st birthday.

The show is based on the book and 2002 Steven Spielberg film of the same name starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Abagnale, Jr. and Tom Hanks as his Javert, FBI agent Carl Hanratty. (Butz took home the Best Actor in a Musical Tony for his portrayal of Hanratty.)
