Laura Benanti and Zachary Levi to Record Cast Album for She Loves Me for Ghostlight
Roundabout Theatre Company has announced that Ghostlight Records will record the cast album of its currently running Broadway revival of She Loves Me. The recording session will take place today, April 25.
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.
She Loves Me also stars Gavin Creel (Kodaly), Michael McGrath (Sipos), Jane Krakowski (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 creative team includes David Rockwell (sets), Jeff Mahshie (costumes), Don Holder (lights), Jon Weston (sound), Larry Hochman (orchestrations), and David Krane (dance arrangements and incidental music).
