BWW Flashback: Roundabout's Starry Hit SHE LOVES ME Concludes Broadway Run Today
Roundabout Theatre Company's hit revival of She Loves Me, which opened to unanimous rave reviews earlier this year, concludes its Broadway engagement today, July 10, 2016. In honor of the musical's final performance, BroadwayWorld brings you a look back at its run!
As part of the 50th Anniversary Season, Roundabout Theatre Company presents Tony Award winner Laura Benanti and Zachary Levi, alongside Tony Award nominee Gavin Creel, Byron Jennings, Tony Award winner Michael McGrath and Tony Award winner Jane Krakowski in a new Broadway production of She Loves Me, directed by Scott Ellis, choreographed by Warren Carlyle with musical direction by Paul Gemignani. This classic musical comedy features a book by Joe Masteroff, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and music by Jerry Bock.
SHE LOVES ME also stars Tony Award-nominee Gavin Creel, Byron Jennings, and Tom McGowan. It's directed by Scott Ellis, choreographed by Warren Carlyle with musical direction by Paul Gemignani. This classic musical comedy features a book by Joe Masteroff, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and music by Jerry Bock.
SHE LOVES ME 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?
SHE LOVES ME began previews on February 19, 2016. Ahead of the first performance, the musical's starry company offered a sneak peek at the production at Feinstein's/54 Below. Check out highlights from the event, and production photos below!
