Catch Me If You Can: Sheet Music from the Broadway Musical Songbook Released by Alfred Music Publishing

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Tuesday, September 20, 2011
Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands of popular artists and songwriters, releases Catch Me If You Can: Sheet Music from the Broadway Musical, the companion songbook to the highly-praised, Tony®-nominated musical’s Original Broadway Cast Recording, arranged for piano and voice.

Catch Me If You Can: Sheet Music from the Broadway Musical is a 172-page collectible songbook featuring instant classics by award-winning Hairspray writers Marc Shaiman (music and lyrics) and Scott Wittman (lyrics). Memorable tunes from the high-flying musical include “Jet Set,” “Fly, Fly Away,” “Don’t Be a Stranger,” including the energetic order, “Don't Break the Rules.” Not only a must-have for fans of the musical, the songbook is also a perfect means for pianists and vocalists to apply their talent to one of musical theatre's most beloved new scores.

Catch Me If You Can is based on the astonishing true story of Frank Abagnale, Jr., a world-class con artist who passed himself off as a doctor, a lawyer, and a jet pilot—all before the age of 21. With straight-arrow FBI agent Carl Hanratty on Frank's trail, the show is a jet-setting, cat-and-mouse chase with a jazzy, swinging-'60s score to keep the adventure in constant motion. Carefully transcribed arrangements in the Catch Me If You Can: Sheet Music from the Broadway Musical songbook capture all the excitement as unfolded on Broadway’s stage. As a bonus, the songbook contains vivid production stills, featuring the original Broadway cast: Aaron Tveit (as Frank Abagnale, Jr.), Tom Wopat (as Frank Abagnale, Sr.), Kerry Butler (as Brenda Strong), and musical’s Tony® Award winner for “Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical,” Norbert Leo Butz (as Agent Carl Hanratty).

As part of Alfred’s ongoing commitment to improving the environment, this songbook is printed on recycled paper.

Catch Me If You Can: Sheet Music from the Broadway Musical songbook (00-37530) is now available for $19.99 at music retail stores or at alfred.com.
