Catch Me If You Can Pantages Theater

The 2013 Pantages Calendar of events is upon us. Their lineup of Broadway shows consists of Catch Me If You Can. This exciting and colorful play is based not only on the hit 2002 movie with Leonard DiCaprio but also the true life story of Frank Abagnale. Frank Abagnale was born in 1948. By the time he was fifteen, he had learned to use his father’s gas credit card to run up charges and buy items from the gas station only to return them for cash. He racked up a bill of thousands of dollars. Frank Abagnale eventually became one of the most famous under-age con artists in American history. He evaded arrests at least twice and by the time he was caught for good had embezzled an estimated $2 million in checks. He posed as an airline pilot, a doctor, a teacher’s assistant at Columbia University, and an attorney amongst other things. He was caught in 1969 in France after an Air France attendant he dated recognized him and notified authorities. By the time he was arrested, at least twelve countries had charges out on him. Frank Abagnale’s ingenuity in his crimes would serve him well later in life. He only served five of his twelve year sentence and after being released he was hired by the U.S. government to help them catch other cons doing similar fraud. Today he is a widely respected speaker and has one son in the FBI. This exciting Broadway play takes you on the series of unbelievable adventures that Frank Abagnale Jr. embarked on. This stunning show is taking Pantages audiences everywhere on a fun and exciting journey through the bold and brazen stints successfully accomplished by Abagnale. Catch Me If You Can has been long anticipated and now it’s finally here in Los Angeles at the Pantages Theater!

Mike Tyson the Truth is the Truth

March 8th, 2013

Pantages Theater is showcasing Mike Tyson: The Undisputed Truth. This incredible show offers a rare insight to the former heavyweight world champion. To some audiences the show is repugnant as Mike Tyson seems transparent in his efforts to be quote unquote truthful. Written by Tyson’s third wife Kiki, he claims to be “domesticated” by his violent and tumultuous life which most would say he brought upon himself. From a past littered with violence starting with a self-reported thirty arrests by age twelve, to his domestic violence accusations, to rape charges, to his cannibalism. Boxing fans worldwide and even just those in awe of such a shockingly talented athlete who couldn’t seem more reproachable to the civilized world, Mike Tyson’s Undisputed Truth leaves audience a bit stunned by both the things he is willing to profess on stage and by the seeming attempt not to convince us that he is an A-Okay kind of guy but to convince himself that he is. He presents his life story as a victim and the only crime for which he apologized for was biting off Evander Holyfield’s ear. Either way, the man is a world-famous icon and brand recognized everywhere and this affords a rare opportunity to hear him speak or attempt to on an intimate level, an effort which given his rocky past should be applauded in and of itself. No one is perfect and it is clear to the world that the man wants a fresh start and another chance at life. He is a forty-six year old Brooklyn native who didn’t seem to be given many tools for refinement growing up and this is a noble and courageous effort from anyone. I definitely suggest checking this out!

Tickets for Mike Tyson Undisputed Truth are still available for both March 9th and 10th.
