NEW YORK (AP) - There’s now only a limited time to catch the Broadway musical “Catch Me If You Can.”

Producers said Tuesday that the Tony Award-nominated show will close Sept. 4 at The Neil Simon Theatre after having played 32 previews and 170 regular performances.

The production was nominated for four Tonys and Norbert Leo Butz took home the award for best actor in a musical.

The show also starred Aaron Tveit as a con artist who passed himself off as a doctor, a lawyer, and a jet pilot.

The musical is based on the life of Frank Abagnale Jr. It inspired the hit film directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

The first national tour of the musical will launch in the fall of 2012 in Providence, R.I.
