The Tony Award-nominated crooner began his latest Broadway concert July 15 and was scheduled to conclude his limited run July 29 at the Neil Simon Theatre.
Two additional performances, July 30 and 31 at 8 PM, have now been scheduled in order to allow for a live, multi-camera filming of the concert. Tickets for the added shows are now available.
Representatives for Harry Connick, Jr. In Concert on Broadway said it had not yet been determined whether the film was being created for a television broadcast or DVD release. A live audio recording could also be a possibility.
Connick's concert engagement highlights songs from his latest album "Your Songs," which features such pop classics as "The Way You Look Tonight," "Some Enchanted Evening," "Close to You," "Who Can I Turn To?" and "Smile."
The Broadway run is part of his ongoing, multi-city concert tour, but Connick added that the Neil Simon concerts would offer special material.
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."
