FORT MYERS, Fla. - A special visitor will help celebrate Barbara B. Mann's 100th birthday by dropping in on Friday's showing of "Catch Me if You Can", taking place at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall.
Based on the hit DreamWorks film and the incredible true story that inspired it, "Catch Me if You Can" is the high-flying, splashy new Broadway musical that tells the story of Frank W. Abagnale, Jr., a teenager who runs away from home in search of the glamorous life. With nothing more than his boyish charm, a big imagination and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor and a lawyer - living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. But when Frank's lies catch the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty, Carl chases Frank to the end and finds something he never expected.
The real Abagnale will be at the 8 p.m. showing and will host a question and answer session afterward.
The musical runs through Sunday at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall.
