Connick Plans Fall Season

Harry Connick Jr.’s fall looks terrifically busy, even for him. Two albums and two films featuring his various talents are being released, just in time to complement his debut as a Broadway lyricist and composer in the musical Thou Shalt Not.

Thou Shalt Not is based, unexpectedly enough, on an Emile Zola novel, although presumably the Ten Commandments make a cameo appearance. The story concerns a shopgirl who conspires with her lover to kill her husband, and the unexpected but dire consequences that ensue. Connick wrote the book, composed and arranged the music, and will produce the cast album when it’s all complete. The play is set to open Oct. 25th.
