What Is the Story of On a Clear Day You Can See Forever?

On a Clear Day You Can See Forever is a lighthearted and supernatural musical comedy based on the original 1965 Lerner and Lane classic. This updated revival spans two eras: the jazzy 1940s and the bellbottomed 1970s. Dr. Mark Bruckner, a psychiatrist experimenting with hypnosis, takes on a new patient: David Gamble, a chain-smoking gay florist with a fear of commitment. Dr. Bruckner is shocked to discover that, when hypnotized, David transforms into Melinda Wells, a magnetic 1940s jazz singer. Bruckner, still grieving the death of his wife, believes Melinda is David’s former self. The doctor is mesmerized by the aspiring songstress and finds more and more opportunities to hypnotize David. Dr. Bruckner falls head over heels for Melinda, becoming locked in a doomed love triangle that transcends time, space and gender.


A collection of our favorite reviews from professional news sources.

"When [Harry Connick Jr.] sings, he comes alive and his caramel sound—gooey and warm—will leave you swooning. Mueller is spunky, funny, nails the mannerisms of the '40s and holds notes wonderfully."

The Associated Press

Mark Kennedy

"Jessie Mueller as Melinda is a standout, with a crystalline soprano. Her duets with Connick — who has never sung or acted more powerfully — have an easy emotional and rhythmic grace."

USA Today

Elysa Gardner

"Alan J. Lerner's lyrics are smart, clever, even impish, and complement the irresistible Burton Lane melodies."

Daily News

Joe Dziemianowicz

"Harry Connick Jr. and his castmates make magic with the melodious score."
