Tony Nominee Harry Connick Jr. To Return To Broadway This Fall In New Revival Of On A Clear Day You Can See Forever

Exciting news theatre fans. One of Broadway's favorite leading men is set to return to the Great White Way this fall. Harry Connick Jr. who was last seen on Broadway in his critically acclaimed, sold out engagement in July 2010 of Harry Connick Jr. in Concert on Broadway will star in the newly revised Broadway revival of Alan Jay Lerner and Burton Lane's production of On A Clear Day You Can See Forever.

The show which is being reconcieved by Tony winning director Michael Myer and featuring a new book by playwright Peter Parnell will open later this year. As of now no other cast members or theatre venue have been announced. Here is a brief description of the show from the shows producers. "Love blooms in unexpected places in the delightfully re imagined 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, 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, Dr. Bruckner stumbles upon what he believes to be David's former self — a dazzling and self-possessed 1940s jazz singer Melinda Wells."

"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." Well I guess it wasn't as brief as I thought. Anyway expect this show thanks to it's charming and talented leading man to sell a lot of tickets at the box office this fall. Until next time theatre fans.
