About the show

Legendary crooner Harry Connick, Jr. heads to Broadway for an evening of songs from one of America’s most respected songwriters. More…

From the show:

Featuring a vibrant, 25-piece orchestra and a modern, multi-media presentation, this entirely new production brings back to Broadway both the magic of Cole Porter's compositions and one of the world’s most celebrated live performers. Connick will delight audiences with a signature style that has been called by The New York Times “blatantly seductive” while celebrating Porter’s peerless contribution to the Great American Songbook.
