The 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle has announced the cancellation of the first two previews of Catch Me If You Can, the new musical based on the 2002 Dreamworks film. According to the Seattle Times, this is due to the death of Teresa Butz, sister of Norbert Leo Butz, who was killed during an attack in her South Park home. Her partner was also injured, but was treated and released.
Norbert Leo Butz, a Broadway stalwart and Tony Award winner most recently seen on Broadway in Speed the Plow, is scheduled to star as Carl Hanratty opposite Aaron Tveit as Frank Abagnale, Jr.
Our prayers go out to his family in this difficult time.
