NEW YORK (AP) - Norbert Leo Butz, Aaron Tveit, Tom Wopat and Kerry Butler will reprise their roles when the musical adaptation of “Catch Me If You Can” hits Broadway next year.

The musical opened in Seattle in 2009 with all four on board _ Tveit as the fugitive, Wopat as his dad, Butler as the love interest and Butz as the FBI agent on the hunt.

The show will open on Broadway at The Neil Simon Theatre on April 10. Previews begin March 7.

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

The story was made into a 2002 Stephen Spielberg-directed film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.
