Tony Award winner Michael Mayer has reconceived and directed the musical, which features a new book by Peter Parnell, based on the original book by Alan Jay Lerner, who co-wrote the score with Burton Lane.
The musical centers on Dr. Mark Bruckner, a dashing psychiatrist who is still in love with his deceased wife. He takes on the case of David Gamble, a quirky young florists' assistant, and while putting David under hypnosis to help him quit smoking, Dr. Bruckner stumbles upon what he believes to be David's former self -- a dazzling and self-possessed 1940's jazz singer Melinda Wells. Instantly intrigued by Melinda, Dr. Bruckner finds himself swept up in the pursuit of a love affair with this woman from another time and place, while David, in turn, falls for Mark.
The show stars Grammy and Emmy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Harry Connick, Jr. as Dr. Mark Bruckner, David Turner as David Gamble and Jessie Mueller as Melinda Wells.
The cast also features Kerry O'Malley as Sharone, Drew Gehling as Warren, Sarah Stiles as Muriel, Paul O'Brien, Heather Ayers, Lori Wilner, Benjamin Eakeley, Alex Ellis, Tyler Maynard, Zachary Prince, Alysha Umphress, Kendal Hartse, Philip Hoffman, Sean Allan Krill, Patrick O'Neill, and Christianne Tisdale.
The creative team includes JoAnn M. Hunter (choreography), Christine Jones (sets), Catherine Zuber (costumes), Kevin Adams (lighting), Peter Hylenski (sound), Tom Watson (hair), Lawrence Yurman (music director & arrangements) and Doug Besterman (orchestrations).
