Hedwig and the Angry Inch


As a teenager, Frank Abagnale Jr. charmed his way across the country in an elaborate ruse, masquerading as a pilot, doctor and lawyer… but all he was looking for was a little love. This high-flying original musical is based on the strange-but-true tale, as told in Abagnale's own memoir and the successful 2002 Steven Spielberg film.  With nothing more than his boyish charm, a big imagination and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank succeeds at living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. However, when Frank’s antics catch the attention of relentless FBI agent Carl Hanratty, the ultimate chase begins.

Who’s Who in the Cast: Aaron Tveit as Frank Abagnale Jr., Norbert Leo Butz as Agent Hanratty, Kerry Butler as Frank’s sweetheart Brenda, Tom Wopat and Rachel deBenedet as Frank’s parents.

SMP’s Favorite Moments: Watching Norbert Leo Butz perform in a role that fit him way better than his detective suit; Aaron Tveit’s duet with Norbert, “Stuck Together;” meeting the real Frank Abagnale – a true charmer!
