New York City
Love blooms in unexpected places in the delightfully reimagined world of On A Clear Day You Can See Forever. Still in love with his deceased wife, Dr. Mark Bruckner (Harry Connick Jr), a dashing psychiatrist and professor, unknowingly takes on the case of his life with David Gamble (David Turner), a quirky young florists’ assistant. While putting David under hypnosis to help him quit smoking so he can move in with his perfect boyfriend Warren (David Gehling), Dr. Bruckner stumbles upon what he believes to be David’s former self – a dazzling and self-possessed 1940’s jazz singer Melinda Wells (Jessie Mueller). Instantly intrigued by Melinda, Dr. Bruckner finds himself swept up in the pursuit of an irresistible (and impossible) love affair with this woman from another time and place, who may or may not have ever existed. Michael Mayer and Peter Parnell’s enchanting new version celebrates much of the beloved score from the 1965 musical including the classic hits “Come Back To Me,” “What Did I Have That I Don’t Have Now?,” “She Isn’t You,” and the titular “On a Clear Day You Can See Forever,” while adding songs from the film score such as “Love With All The Trimmings,” and “Go To Sleep.” Songs from the Lerner and Lane score for the film Royal Wedding such as “Ev’ry Night At Seven,” “You’re All The World To Me,” “Open Your Eyes” and “Too Late Now” complete the landscape for this romantic musical comedy. This production of On A Clear Day makes the case for living life with your eyes, and heart, wide open.
