Zachary Levi Replaces Josh Radnor in Laura Benanti-Led She Loves Me Revival
Zachary Levi (First Date, Chuck) will return to Broadway next spring in Roundabout Theatre Company's upcoming revival of She Loves Me. Levi is set to take on the role of Georg, replacing the previously announced Josh Radnor, who has departed the production due to a scheduling conflict.
Levi joins a cast led by Tony winner Laura Benanti as Amalia, a perfume-shop clerk engaged in a battle of wits with her coworker, Georg (Levi). Little do they know that they're also romantic pen pals who happen to be falling for each other.
The company includes Tony winners Jane Krakowski as Ilona, René Auberjonois as Maraczek, and Michael McGrath as Ladisov Sipos, Gavin Creel as Kodaly, Nicholas Barasch as Arpad, and Peter Bartlett as 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.
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, which also served as the inspiration for the films The Shop Around the Corner and You've Got Mail.
On the creative team are David Rockwell (sets), Jeff Mahshie (costumes), Don Holder (lights), Jon Weston (sound), Larry Hochman (orchestrations), and David Krane (dance arrangements and incidental music). Tony winner Warren Carlyle serves as choreographer, with Paul Gemignani as musical director.
Directed by Scott Ellis, the Roundabout Theatre Company production begins performances February 5, 2016 at Studio 54, with opening night set for March 3. The limited engagement is scheduled to conclude May 22.
