The recording, released by Columbia Records, will be titled "Harry on Broadway, Act I." The first CD will include much of the score of the new Roundabout Theatre Company production of The Pajama Game, which stars Connick as Sid Sorokin and Kelli O'Hara as Babe Williams, and is currently playing a sold-out run at the American Airlines Theatre.

The second CD will continue the Pajama Game recording and then continue with new versions of selected songs from Connick's earlier Broadway musical, Thou Shalt Not, sung by Connick and O'Hara. Thou Shalt Not, which ran briefly during the 2001-02 season, was Connick's debut as a musical composer. Pajama Game represented his Broadway acting debut.

The CD should give a new lease on life for Thou Shalt Not, the score of which did not find a major recording label following its Broadway run, though it was retailed through the website Amazon.com.
