Even the velvet voice of Harry Connick Jr. cannot cut through the cloud that hangs over On A Clear Day You Can See Forever.
This reimagined version of the 1965 stage musical (and 1970 film with Barbra Streisand) stars Harry Connick, Jr. as a psychiatrist involved in a paranormal love affair.
Between the lighting and set design you want to have fun, but something is missing. The cast is individually terrific, but there is no chemistry between them. After putting his patient under hypnosis, a psychiatrist discovers the patient’s previous life as a jazz singer – and falls in love with her. However, the fact that Mr. Connick is falling in love with another man to reach the inner woman is a very odd casting choice for his fans. Featuring the songs “Come Back to Me,” “What Did I Have That I Don’t Have Now?” and “She Isn’t You.”
Maybe as time goes by the production will be tighter and work better.
