The Broadway shows fall in the middle of a busy late spring/summer touring schedule for the pianist/singer/actor/composer.

Last month Connick toured New Zealand and Australia, and in May he continues performing shows across the globe with gigs in France, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey and Morocco.

Connick also has a U.S. tour planned with dates stretching from June 11’s show at the Fabulous Fox Theatre in St. Louis to a Sept. 21 performance at The Concerts At Wente Vinyards in Livermore, Calif.

According to his official website, Connick has recorded over 24 albums that have racked up over 25 million sales. His most recent album is 2009’s Your Songs, a collaboration with record producer Clive Davis that features Connick’s take on 14 classic tunes.

In 2006 Connick made his Broadway acting debut with the Roundabout Theatre Company revival of “The Pajama Game.”  His starring role as Sid Sorokin earned Connick a Tony nomination for “Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical.”
