(A rep for Connick tells EW, “We’ve had some discussions but there’s nothing to announce at this time.”) In the original production, the patient was a young woman with ESP who, in a past life, was an English aristocrat. In Peter Parnell’s revamped script, staged at Vassar College last summer under the direction of American Idiot‘s Michael Mayer, the patient is a young man who, in a past life, was a black female jazz singer, the Post reports. Yes, it sounds like Connick is just the man to treat him.
