"She Loves Me" Concert Stars Set

Casting is now complete for the Roundabout Theatre Company's benefit concert of She Loves Me. The concert, scheduled for December 5th, is not a new show for the Roundabout, whose fully staged production of the show began in 1993 and was the Roundabout's first musical ... a tradition that they have continued to multiple Tony-winning success ever since.

The concert will star Tony-nominee Gavin Creel, replacing Cheyenne Jackson in the leading role of Steven Kodaly, Tony-winner Jane Krakowski as Ilona, and three-time Tony-nominee Kelli O'Hara as Amalia. Josh Radnor, Peter Bartlett, Tony-nominee Michael McGrath, Tony-nominee Rory O'Malley, Ladislav Sipos, and four-time Tony-nominee Victor Garber will also have featured roles in the concert.

Proceeds from the concert will benefit the Roundabout, a not-for-profit theater company based in New York City. According to the Roundabout, She Loves Me is a 1963 musical that "follows Amalia (O'Hara) and Georg (Radnor), two feuding clerks in a European parfumerie during the 1930s who secretly find solace in their anonymous romantic pen pals, little knowing their respective correspondents are actually each other."

The score, by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick (the songwriting team behind Fiddler on the Roof), includes the songs "Dear Friend," "I Resolve," "Tonight at Eight," "Will He Like Me?," "Vanilla Ice Cream," "Days Gones By," "Grand Knowing You," "Try Me" and the title song, among other tunes.

The performance is set for December 5th at 7:30.
