Jerry Mitchell to
choreograph Broadway's Catch Me If You Can

The new musical Catch Me If You Can, based on the film by Steven Spielberg, is shaping up to be a Hairspray reunion: The Terrence McNally-scripted show already has a score from Hairspray's Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman, along with the earlier show's director, Jack O'Brien. And now, reports Playbill.com, Hairspray's Tony-nominated choreographer, Jerry Mitchell, has joined the Catch Me crew as well. A recent reading of the show featured Hairspray costar Matthew Morrison in the lead role of Frank Abagnale Jr. as well as Nathan Lane (as the FBI agent played by Tom Hanks in the movie version) and Tom Wopat. Mitchell also received Tony nominations for The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and Never Gonna Dance; he won the award for the revival of La Cage aux Folles.
