Description

Frank W Abagnale, alias Frank Williams, Robert Conrad, Frank Adams, and Robert Monjo, was one of the most daring con men, forgers, imposters, and escape artists in history In his brief but notorious criminal career, Abagnale donned a pilot s uniform and copiloted a Pan Am jet, masqueraded as the supervising resident of a hospital, practiced law without a license, and cashed over 2.5 million in forged checks, all before he was twenty one.Known by the police of twenty six foreign countries and all fifty states as The Skywayman, Abagnale lived a sumptuous life on the lam until the law caught up with him Now recognized as the nation s leading authority on financial foul play, Abagnale was a charming rogue whose hilarious, stranger than fiction international escapades, and ingenious escapes including one from an airplane make Catch Me If You Can an irresistible tale of deceit.Performed by Michael Cerveris
