Jessie Mueller

The revival of "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever" may have been a rare stumble for director Michael Mayer ("Spring Awakening," "American Idiot"), but he received nothing but plaudits for casting Jessie Mueller as the aspiring jazz singer Melinda Wells, who emerges out of the body of a hypnotized young gay man in this tale of reincarnation. The Chicago-born actress salvaged two dreams from the ruins of "Clear Day": a Broadway debut opposite Harry Connick Jr. and a Tony nomination: featured actress in a musical.
