The Roundabout Theatre Company's Broadway revival of She Loves Me concludes its limited engagement at Studio 54 July 10, following a four-week extension. It was nominated for eight Tony Awards and won for Best Scenic Design (David Rockwell).
She Loves Me began previews February 19 and officially opened March 17. The production, directed by Scott Ellis and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, stars Byron Jennings, Laura Benanti, Zachary Levi, Gavin Creel, Tom McGowan and Jane Krakowski.
The revival made Broadway history June 30 when it was broadcast live from the theatre in a partnership with BroadwayHD, marking the first live stream of a Broadway show. The production will also hit the big screen in the fall; Screenvision Media filmed multiple captures of the revival, which will be edited for the musical’s cinematic debut.
The classic musical comedy tells the story of two parfumerie clerks who, unbeknownst to each other, are corresponding romantically. She Loves Me features a book by Joe Masteroff, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and music by Jerry Bock. Musical direction is by Paul Gemignani.
The cast also features Nicholas Barasch and Peter Bartlett, as well as ensemble members Cameron Adams, Alison Cimmet, Justin Bowen, Preston Truman Boyd, Benjamin Eakeley, Sara Edwards, Michael Fatica, Gina Ferrall, Jenifer Foote, Andrew Kober, Laura Shoop and Jim Walton.
She Loves Me, according to Roundabout press notes, “is a heartwarming musical comedy classic about finding love the good old-fashioned way. It follows Georg (Levi) and Amalia (Benanti), two parfumerie clerks who aren’t quite the best of friends. Constantly bumping heads while on the job, the sparring coworkers can’t seem to find common ground. But little do they know, the anonymous romantic pen pals they have both been falling for happen to be each other! Will love continue to blossom once their identities are finally revealed?”
