Following in the footsteps of their award-winning, sell-out productions of The Drowsy Chaperone and Man of La Mancha, Squabbalogic once again blends the ingredients of time, genre, heart and humour by revising, revamping and completely reimagining this winsome 1960s screwball comic gem, for 2022 with a modern queer twist.
In an effort to quit nicotine at the behest of his humourless fiancé, David Gamble (Jay James-Moody, Herringbone) enlists the services of psychiatrist and hypnosis researcher, Dr Mark Bruckner (Blake Bowden, The Book of Mormon). What begins as a simple regression soon turns into something otherworldly as the doctor discovers inside David the presence of Melinda Welles, a charming young woman who died tragically decades earlier. As Dr Bruckner continues to meet with and fall for the scintillating Melinda via dowdy David’s subconscious, the unaware David finds that he is falling for the handsome Dr Bruckner.
On A Clear Day You Can See Forever was written for Broadway and adapted into a 1970s film starring Barbra Streisand. This all-new take is adapted from Alan Jay Lerner’s original by Jay James-Moody, who teams up with the legendary Kelley Abbey to co-direct this hilarious and heart-warming supernatural comedy of errors.
Exploring modern themes of sexuality, gender identity, and ethics, this fast-paced, joyous, and musical delight features all-new arrangements of Alan Jay Lerner and Burton Lane’s wonderful songs including Hurry It’s Lovely Up Here, She Wasn’t You, Melinda, Come Back To Me, and naturally, On A Clear Day You Can See Forever.
