Norbert Leo Butz

Catching Big Fish and Jazz After Midnight

by John Platt

It so happens that I’ve seen three of my favorite Broadway actors recently – Michael Cerveris in Fun Home, Danny Burstein in The Snow Goose, and now Norbert Leo Butz in Big Fish at the Neil Simon Theatre. Butz has made a specialty of playing con men in shows like Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Catch Me If You Can, so he’s perfect for the role of the irrepressible father who tells tale tales in Big Fish.
