Sheldon Harnick-approved love is in the air at Studio 54.

That’s because Laura Benanti is sweeping Zachary Levi off his feet and Gavin Creel is doing the same to Jane Krakowski in Roundabout’s new production of She Loves Me, a slice of traditional musical theater love receiving its first Broadway revival in over 20 years.

The Harnick-Bock-Masteroff musical stars Tony winner Benanti as perfumery employee Amalia and Levi as her bickering coworker Georg—who also happens to be her anonymous, amorous pen pal, a fact which neither is aware of. Joining the duo are Broadway veterans Krakowski and Creel as a seductive clerk and a smooth womanizer, respectively, in the Scott Ellis-directed production.

EW has an exclusive first look at the cheery, classic tuner, which opens its limited run (as part of Roundabout’s 50th anniversary season) on March 17; the musical will play Broadway’s Studio 54 through June 12.
