Spielberg musical; Enron play

Steven Spielberg is partnering with the team that created *Hairspray* and helped him create *Catch Me If You Can* (both the movie and the new musical, now playing in Seattle) for a Showtime TV series about the making of an actual new musical, followed by the actual production of that musical on Broadway, Variety reports.

*The Guardian* took five non-theatrical financiers to a performance of Lucy Prebble's *Enron,* which recounts the 2001-02 scandal, to get their reactions to this financial piece of theater. It's all the rage over there, and it's intriguing how video, puppets, ventriloquists, etc., are apparently used to depict the likes of Jeff Skiling and Ken Lay.

"Catch Me If You Can" closed in Seattle over a month ago.

Thanks. I didn't check the closing date. Sloppy of me.
