Though he’s best known as a jazzy cooner in the Sinatra mold, Harry Connick Jr. has established strong ties to Broadway. A two-time Tony nominee for the score of the short-lived 2001 musical Thou Shalt Not and his charming lead performance in The Pajama Game, Connick has also played sold-out concert runs on the Great White Way in 1990 and 2010. In 2011, he stars as Dr. Mark Bruckner in a re-imagined Broadway revival of On a Clear Day You Can See Forever.
