Tony Award nominee Melissa Errico will return to Off-Broadway's Irish Rep (where she starred in Finian’s Rainbow in 2016) this summer for a production of Alan Jay Lerner and Burton Lane's 1965 musical On a Clear Day You Can See Forever.
Helmed by Irish Rep Artistic Director Charlotte Moore, the summer revival will begin performances June 15 ahead of a June 28 opening. The limited run is scheduled through August 12.
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. Florian Staab (The Seafarer). Casting is by Deborah Brown (Our Town).
