In On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, a young woman goes to a psychiatrist to cure her smoking. There, the doctor discovers through hypnosis that she is the reincarnation of a well-born English lady with whom he becomes increasingly enamored.

Rounding out the Off-Broadway company will be Florrie Bagel (Jerry Springer: The Opera) as Flora, Rachel Coloff (Urinetown) as Mrs. Hatch, Caitlin Gallogly (Silicon Valley) as Janie Preston, Daisy Hobbs (Aladdin) as Muriel Benson, and Craig Waletzko (Kinky Boots) as Conrad.

The ensemble will be made up of William Bellamy (The Emperor Jones), Peyton Crim (Finian’s Rainbow), and Matt Gibson (Ragtime).

On a Clear Day You Can See Forever will feature music direction by John Bell (Fiddler on the Roof), choreography by Barry McNabb (Finian’s Rainbow), orchestrations by Josh Clayton (Donnybrook!), and will be conducted by Gary Adler (Escape to Margaritaville). The production team includes scenic designer James Morgan (Three Small Irish Masterpieces), costume designer Whitney Locher (Woman and Scarecrow), lighting designer Mary Jo Dondlinger (Finian’s Rainbow), and sound designer M.
