Broadway loves She Loves Me, and it’s about time you do, too.
The critically-acclaimed Roundabout Theatre Company revival of the classic romantic musical has been winning raves in its Broadway production, which stars Laura Benanti and Zachary Levi as two clashing co-workers who don’t realize they’ve been corresponding through anonymous love letters for years. The score, featuring music by Jerry Bock and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, is a treasured if underrated musical theater gem.
Joining Benanti and Levi in the cast are Jane Krakowski and Gavin Creel as another pair of head-butting, if still equally amorously matched, co-workers at the Budapest parfumerie where the show takes place. Michael McGrath, Nicholas Barasch, Peter Bartlett, and Byron Jennings also round out the cast.
If you don’t catch the show in its run at Studio 54 (through July 10) or on this year’s Tony Awards (the show is up for a whopping eight awards, including Best Revival of a Musical), you’re in luck. EW has an exclusive first listen to the soon-to-be-released Broadway cast recording, featuring Benanti, Levi, Krakowski, and the rest in fine voice.
The 26-track Ghostlight Records album, produced by label founder Kurt Deutsch, is available digitally on June 10 and in stores on July 8.
