Harry Connick Jr.'s On A Clear Day Revival Bows Out Early

Sad. We don't think audiences gave it as much of the chance it deserved.

Another new Broadway show is bringing down the marquee, as producers of On A Clear Day have announced that production will play its final performance Jan. 29.

It's probably the highest-profile casualty of the season, taking into account how beloved the musical — and it's star, Harry Connick Jr. — is. But the numbers were just never there, even in the busy holiday weeks. The show has constantly struggled to bring in an audience, so with that, it will just have to bow out after 29 previews and 57 regular performances.

So brief! We're sad to see it go like this. On such a low note, you know? And who could be next, we wonder? First Bonnie & Clyde, then Lysistrata Jones, now this.

Will this be the end of the slaughter????

    It is not really sad, your such an idiot. This happens every year on Broadway. Shows come and go. Only a small few make for a long run. I have no problem with Harry Connick, but he really is not that big of a star and not really box office draw.

    No, I disagree. Have you seen On A Clear Day, Netgear? Harry Connick, Jr. has a great voice. I think the play does not have much action for Connick to act. He's a psychiatrist, which is a stiff role to begin with, and there's not much in the script to allow him to really show a range of emotions. The songs are wonderful and so is Harry Connick, Jr. It's a very good play–better than others that are currently on Broadway or that had longer runs.
