James L. Nederlander and Broadway Across America will present Harry Connick, Jr. In Concert on Broadway July 15-26. Connick most recently appeared on Broadway in the revival of The Pajama Game in 2006.
The concert engagement is the first production announced for the Neil Simon Theatre since the producers of the Broadway production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom sequel, Love Never Dies, delayed its New York premiere to 2011. Performances were originally scheduled to begin in November at the Neil Simon.
Connick made his Broadway debut with the concert An Evening with Harry Connick Jr. and His Orchestra, which played the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in 1990. He earned a Tony Award nomination for Best Score to the short-lived Broadway musical Thou Shalt Not and received a Best Actor in a Musical Tony nomination for The Pajama Game. His screen roles include "Will & Grace," "Memphis Belle," "Little Man Tate," "Independence Day," "Hope Floats," "P.S., I Love You," "Mickey," "Bug" and "Living Proof." He earned an Emmy Award for "Harry Connick, Jr.: Only You in Concert." His latest album "Your Songs" features pop classics including "The Way You Look Tonight," "Some Enchanted Evening," "Close to You," "Who Can I Turn To?" and "Smile."
