On a Clear Day You Can See Forever Information
About the Show:
On a Clear Day You Can See Forever is a musical with a score by Burton Lane and book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner. It concerns a psychiatrist, Dr. Mark Bruckner, who falls in love with his patient's former self while using hypnosis. The supernatural romantic entanglement provides a curious context for a beautiful score, including songs such as "Come Back to Me," "What Did I Have That I Don't Have Now?," and "She Isn't You."
The original Broadway production of On a Clear Day You Can See Forever opened on October 17, 1965 and played for 283 performances (including previews). Though it received mixed reviews, it did spawn national tour productions. In 1970, a film adaptation was released, directed by Vincente Minnelli and starring Barbra Streisand.
The 2011 Broadway revival stars Harry Connick, Jr. (The Pajama Game, TV's Will and Grace) and features some major book revisions (see below), and score changes. Several songs have been added, including some from the movie version ("Go to Sleep," Love With All the Trimmings") and some from Lane and Lerner's score from the film Royal Wedding (Ev'ry Night at Seven," "Open Your Eyes," "Too Late Now," and "You're All the World to Me"). Order your On a Clear Day You Can See Forever tickets now to see this fresh arrangement of a classic musical.
*This is a description of the 2011 Broadway revival. See below for variances from the original 1965 Broadway production.
Dr. Mark Bruckner is a handsome professor and psychiatrist who is still preoccupied with lingering feelings for his late wife. One day, he begins treating David Gamble, an odd young man who works in a flower shop. David wants to move in with his dreamy boyfriend, Warren, but he needs Dr. Bruckner to administer hypnosis to help him quit smoking first. But the doctor gets more than he expected when, during the hypnosis sessions, he discovers an alter-ego who he believes may be David's former self from a past life. Even more surprisingly, the alter-ego is Melinda Wells, a lovely 1940's jazz singer. Despite his better judgment, Dr. Bruckner begins to pursue a love affair with this woman. But what can come of the relationship when Melinda is from another time? And what if she never existed at all? Get your On a Clear Day You Can See Forever tickets today and learn how this highly unusual relationship plays out.
*In the original Broadway version, the patient is a woman named Daisy Gamble, and her past-life alter-ego is not a 1940's jazz singer but a free-spirited woman who lived in late 18th century England. She comes to Dr. Bruckner to quit smoking so that her fiance, Warren, can have a better chance of getting a job with excellent benefits.
Run Time:2 hours and 15 minutes with one intermission
