Butz, Tveit joined by Butler, Wopat in ‘Catch Me’

Broadway musical confirms cast

Topliners Norbert Leo Butz and Aaron Tveit will be joined by Tom Wopat and Kerry Butler in the Broadway incarnation of “Catch Me if You Can,” set to bow in the spring.

Four thesps starred in the show’s 2009 preem at the 5th Avenue Theater in Seattle. Also appearing in the Main Stem cast are Seattle vets Rachel de Benedet, Linda Hart and Nick Wyman, among others.

“Catch Me” is based on the memoir of the same name as well as the 2002 Steven Spielberg film that starred Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks. Plot centers on a young conman on the run from an FBI agent.

Tveit (“Next to Normal,” “Howl”) plays the DiCaprio role of the conman, with Butz (“Dirty Rotten Scoundrels”) co-starring as the FBI agent portrayed by Hanks.

Most of the Seattle production team is also back, including several “Hairspray” alums: composer-lyricists Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, director Jack O’Brien, choreographer Jerry Mitchell and set designer David Rockwell.

“Catch Me if You Can” begins previews March 7 ahead of an April 10 opening at the Neil Simon Theater.
