Complete with magnificent color photos from the original Broadway production, this 172-page collectible songbook contains piano/vocal sheet music for each song from the hit musical's original Broadway cast recording. Award-winning Hairspray writers Marc Shaiman (music and lyrics) and Scott Wittman (lyrics) have created another masterpiece, and songs like “Fly, Fly Away,” “Goodbye,” along with many others from the show, have fast become staple repertoire among singers. This songbook edition allows pianists and vocalists to apply their talent to one of musical theatre's most beloved new scores. Catch Me If You Can captures 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, we're off on a jet-setting, cat-and-mouse chase, as a jazzy, swinging-'60s score keeps this adventure in constant motion. In the end, Agent Hanratty learns he and Frank aren't so very different after all, and Frank finds out what happens when love catches up to a man on the run. Songs include: Live in Living Color • The Pinstripes Are All That They See • Someone Else's Skin • Jet Set • Don't Break the Rules • Butter Outta Cream • The Man Inside the Clues • Christmas Is My Favorite Time of Year • Doctor's Orders • Don't Be a Stranger • Little Boy, Be a Man • Seven Wonders • (Our) Family Tree • Fly, Fly Away • Goodbye • Stuck Together (Strange But True) • Fifty Checks.
