The Broadway cast recording of Roundabout Theatre Company's Tony-nominated revival of She Loves Me will delay its release by Ghostlight Records. The album will now be available online and in stores July 29 as opposed to its originally scheduled July 8 release. The recording is currently available from iTunes and other digital formats.
In the musical, Tony Award winner Laura Benanti plays Amalia, a perfume-shop clerk engaged in a battle of wits with her coworker, Georg (Zachary Levi). Little do they know that they're also romantic pen pals who happen to be falling for each other. Featuring a score by Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock and a book by Joe Masteroff, She Loves Me is inspired by the play Parfumerie by Miklós László. She Loves Me, which is directed by Scott Ellis, will play through July 10 at Studio 54.
In addition to its Tony-nominated costars, the production also features Gavin Creel (Kodaly), Michael McGrath (Sipos), Jane Krakowski (Tony-nominated as Ilona), Nicholas Barasch (Arpad), and Peter Bartlett (Head Waiter). The ensemble is made up of 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.
The new Broadway production is choreographed by Warren Carlyle, with musical direction by Paul Gemignani. The show also includes Tony-winning set design by David Rockwell, Tony-nominated costume design by Jeff Mahshie, lighting design by Don Holder, sound design by Jon Weston, Tony-nominated orchestrations by Larry Hochman, and dance arrangements and incidental music by David Krane.
