On a Clear Day You Can See Forever




A musical based loosely on Berkeley Square, written in 1929 by John L. Balderston about a woman who has ESP and has been reincarnated.


Story:

Daisy can predict the future, and when hypnotized by Dr. Mark Bruckner, can recall her life as Melinda Wells from the 18th century. And as tiring as Dr. Mark's infatuation with her alter ego is, in the end, Daisy cannot help but love him.
