Connick comes to The Colonial direct from his 15 sold-out performances on Broadway at the Neil Simon Theatre. Of his Broadway run, The New York Times said, "Harry scores a knockout" with Variety adding, "Dynamite.

Over the past two decades, Harry Connick, Jr. has earned a place among the entertainment world’s most successful and multi-talented artists.  While he first reached a mass audience as a pianist, singer and bandleader, his subsequent success in film, television and theater have secured his place in the public eye as a renaissance man and versatile entertainer.

His most recent album, “Your Songs,” was released on Columbia Records in 2009, featuring his versions of 14 classic popular songs. 

His film credits include "Memphis Belle;" "Little Man Tate;" "Copycat;" "Independence Day;" "Hope Floats;" "My Dog Skip;" "The Iron Giant;" "The Simian Line;" "P.S., I Love You;" "New in Town;" "Mickey;" "Bug;" and "Living Proof."  He also contributed music to several films including "When Harry Met Sally" (leading to his first multi-platinum album), "The Godfather III" and "Sleepless in Seattle."

On television, he has been seen in “When My Heart Finds Christmas” on CBS and “Harry for the Holidays”on NBC;  two Great Performances (PBS) specials: “Swingin’ Out Live” and “Harry Connick, Jr.: Only You in Concert;”  “The Happy Elf;" "South Pacific;" and on the long running NBC series “Will & Grace” on which he played the recurring role of Dr. Leo Markus.
