News   THE SCREENING ROOM: Clear Day's Harry Connick Jr. and Jessie Mueller Perform on "The View" (Video)
Tony Award nominee Harry Connick Jr. (The Pajama Game) and Broadway newcomer Jessie Mueller star in the re-imagined production of On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, which opened Dec. 11, following previews that began Nov. 12, at the St. James Theatre.

In celebration of the musical's opening, the stars visited the ladies of "The View" to perform a medley of musical numbers from On a Clear Day, which features a score by Burton Lane and Alan Jay Lerner.

The revival, which features a new book by Peter Parnell, is reconceived and directed by Tony-winning director Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening).

Here's how producers characterize this revised version of the 1965 musical by Lerner and composer Lane: "Love blooms in unexpected places in the delightful, newly imagined world of On a Clear Day You Can See Forever. Still in love with his deceased wife, Dr. Mark Bruckner (Connick, Jr.), a dashing psychiatrist and professor, unknowingly takes on the case of his life with David Gamble (David Turner), 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 (Mueller). 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."
