Grammy Award winner and Tony-nominated performer Harry Connick, Jr. returns to Broadway July 15 for a limited two-week run at the Neil Simon Theatre.

Harry Connick, Jr. in Concert on Broadway will play a 13-performance engagement through July 29. James L. Nederlander and Broadway Across America present the Broadway stop on Connick's current multi-city concert tour, which continues through the fall.

"We'll make it special and add some surprises for the Broadway house because it is Broadway," Connick, Jr. told Playbill.com in a recent interview. "You're not just playing some venue. It demands some individuality."

The evening will highlight 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."

He also revealed, "I could sing 'Mona Lisa' or 'The Way You Look Tonight,' or some of the songs I wrote like 'We Are in Love.' We're just going to keep mixing it up and changing it."



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."
