NEW YORK (AP) - You’ll have to wait a little more to catch “Catch Me If You Can” on Broadway.

Producers on Monday cited the heavy snowfall in New York and the extension of The Neil Simon Theatre’s outgoing tenant, “Rain _ A Tribute to the Beatles,” as the reasons they need more time to move into the space and start technical rehearsals.

The musical is adapted from the 2002 Stephen Spielberg-directed film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks. It will star Norbert Leo Butz, Aaron Tveit, Tom Wopat and Kerry Butler.

Music and lyrics are by Marc Shaiman, and lyrics are by Scott Wittman. Both of them worked on “Hairspray.” The book is by Terrence McNally, who wrote “Love! Valour! Compassion!”

The start of previews is being moved from March 7 to March 11.

Opening night hasn’t changed. It remains April 10.
