One of Broadway's best-loved leading men is back and as The Hollywood Reporter says, “Harry Connick, Jr. and company make magic!" The Associated Press calls this new romantic musical, “Glorious, luscious and lovely! Harry Connick, Jr. will leave you swooning.” Mr. Connick plays Dr. Mark Bruckner, a down-to-earth psychiatrist who unknowingly takes on the case of his life with David Gamble, a quirky young florist's assistant. While putting David under hypnosis to help him quit smoking so he can move in with his perfect boyfriend, Warren, Dr. Bruckner stumbles upon what he believes to be David’s former self – a dazzling and self-possessed 1940’s jazz singer Melinda Wells. Dr. Bruckner finds himself suddenly swept off his feet by this beautiful woman—and swept into a world he never dreamed possible.
This newly imagined Burton Lane/Alan Jay Lerner musical is directed by Tony Award® winner Michael Mayer, who teams with acclaimed writer Peter Parnell to bring an entrancing, new story to one of Broadway's most beautiful scores, which includes "Come Back to Me," "Too Late Now" and, of course, "On A Clear Day You Can See Forever," all performed by a full 19-piece orchestra.
Filled with delightful surprises, a remarkable cast and the kind of hope only true love can bring, On a Clear Day is ready to open eyes—and hearts—all over Broadway.
