According to a report in the New York Times, when a mishap involving some stage furniture resulted in a slight injury for co-star Roz Ryan, Connick, the revival's Tony-nominated star, stepped in front of the curtain to entertain the crowd as matters were put right backstage.

Connick "conducted a question-and-answer session, sang 'Happy Birthday' to someone in the audience and talked about the future of his native New Orleans and his high school career," reported the Times.

Roughly a half-hour later, the conductor said "Harry, it's time," and the show continued.
