Co-stars for Connick Jr.

Turner, Mueller cast in 'Clear Day'

Thesps David Turner and Jessie Mueller have booked gigs starring alongside Harry Connick Jr. in the upcoming Broadway revival of “On a Clear Day You Can See Forever.”

In the newly reimagined storyline of the 1965 tuner, Turner plays a young man who goes to a psychiatrist (Connick) for hypnotherapy to quit smoking. The hypnosis uncovers the young man’s previous life as a 1940s jazz singer, who’ll be played by Mueller.

Most recent Broadway credit for Turner (“Sunday in the Park With George,” “In My Life”) was last season’s revival of “Arcadia.” Mueller, a legit regular in Chicago, makes her Main Stem debut in “On a Clear Day.”

Both thesps appeared in the recent developmental lab of the musical held at Off Broadway’s Vineyard Theater last month. (Connick did not, due to sked conflicts.)

The musical by Burton Lane and Alan Jay Lerner has been reconceived by helmer Michael Mayer, with a book by Peter Parnell that incorporates tunes written for the 1970 movie version of “On a Clear Day” as well as songs from Lane and Lerner’s “Royal Wedding.” Liza Lerner, Tom Hulce, Ira Pittelman and Broadway Across America (John Gore, Thomas B. McGrath, Beth Williams) produce.

“On a Clear Day” begins previews Nov. 12 ahead of a Dec. 11 opening at the St. James Theater.
