Harry Connick Jr.'s concert on Broadway in July 2010 will be broadcast on PBS in the Great Performances series beginning March 2. Connick mixed jazz and big band standards as well as some original material in the show, which ran for two weeks at the Neil Simon Theater. He employed not only his big band but also a 12-piece string section. Lucien Barbarin guested on a couple of New Orleans songs. The New York Times reviewed the show favorably here. Connick has performed on Broadway before, and he drew a Tony Award nomination for his role in The Pajama Game.
