“She Loves Me”: Broadway’s Newest Hit

“She Loves Me,” the 1963 Bock and Harnick musical, has just been revived on Broadway by the Roundabout. The reviews are terrific. I enjoyed it very much, especially the performances of Laura Benanti (left) and Jane Krakowski. I can’t pretend I like the operetta style of much of the show’s music, but it’s a lovely, jewel-box production and deserves your attention. I much preferred the musical style — bluegrass — of the Roundabout’s other new musical production, of “The Robber Bridegroom,” which, as it happens, stars Benanti’s ex-husband, Steven Pasquale. Show biz, especially the Broadway variety, is a small world.
