HARRY CONNICK, JR. (Ted Mitchell) has proven to be among the world's most successful and multi-talented artists. While he first reached a mass audience as a pianist, singer and bandleader, his subsequent success in film, television and theatre, garnered him Grammy and Emmy® awards as well as Tony nominations. 

Connick achieved his initial widespread success as a musician when director Rob Reiner asked him to contribute the score to the smash film When Harry Met Sally, leading to Connick's first multi-platinum album. 

Only a year later, he made his acting debut in Memphis Belle, followed by his appearance in Little Man Tate, Jodie Foster's directorial debut. Other feature credits include: Copycat, Independence Day, starring Will Smith, Hope Floats alongside Sandra Bullock which garnered him a Blockbuster Award nomination for Favorite Actor - Drama/Romance, My Dog Skip, The Iron Giant, The Simian Line and P.S., I Love You, starring Hilary Swank. In addition to his acting credits, Connick's music has also contributed to the success of such films as Godfather III, Sleepless in Seattle, The Mask and One Fine Day. 

As a television performer, Connick has starred in two holiday specials built around his best selling holiday albums When My Heart Finds Christmas and Harry for the Holidays, and two Great Performances/PBS concert specials, Swingin' Out Live and the 2004 Emmy®-winning Harry Connick, Jr.: Only You In Concert. He teamed with IDT Entertainment (producers of The Simpsons) on The Happy Elf, which is based on the original children's song "The Happy Elf” that Connick composed for Harry for the Holidays. Connick has displayed his acting talents on the small screen, starring opposite Glenn Close in the adaptation of the musical South Pacific, played the recurring role of Dr. Leo Markus on Will & Grace and starred in the Lifetime movie Living Proof. 

Connick is also no stranger to the New York theater scene. His theatre accolades include: a Tony nomination for his role as Sid Sorokin in the revival of The Pajama Game, a Tony nomination for Best Original Score for Thou Shalt Not, and his own concert production Harry Connick, Jr. and His Orchestra - Live on Broadway. Additionally, the Coterie Theatre in Kansas City, Missouri was the first regional theatre in the US to stage The Happy Elf, a new family musical composed by Connick.
