The Roundabout Theatre Company production of She Loves Me officially opens March 17 following previews that began February 19. The Broadway revival stars Byron Jennings, Laura Benanti, Zachary Levi, Gavin Creel, Michael McGrath and Jane Krakowski.
Directed by Scott Ellis and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, the classic musical comedy is scheduled to run through July 10 at Studio 54.
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?"
Ellis returns to helm the production after having directed Roundabout’s ten-time Tony-nominated revival of She Loves Me in 1993, which marked the company's first Broadway musical. The creative team also includes David Rockwell (sets), Jeff Mahshie (costumes), Don Holder (lights), Jon Weston (sound), Larry Hochman (orchestrations) and David Krane (dance arrangements and incidental music).
Tickets for She Loves Me are available by calling (212) 719-1300, online at RoundaboutTheatre.org and in person at Roundabout’s Studio 54 Box office, 254 West 54th St.
