Zachary Levi to Star in Broadway’s ‘She Loves Me’

Zachary Levi, the “Chuck” star who’ll appear in NBC’s upcoming fall series “Heroes Reborn,” will step into the Broadway musical “She Loves Me” this spring.

He’ll replace the previously announced Josh Radnor, who has to exit the project because of scheduling issues, according to the Roundabout Theater Company, the New York nonprofit that’s producing the musical. Levi joins a cast that includes Laura Benanti, Jane Krakowski, Rene Auberjonois and Gaving Creel.

Levi previously starred on Broadway in the short-lived 2013 musical “First Date.” In “She Loves Me,” the 1963 musical comedy by Sheldon Harnick, Jerry Bock and Joe Masterhoff, the actor will play Georg, the perfume shop employee who doesn’t know the anonymous pen pal he’s falling in love with is the co-worker (Benanti) he’s always bickering with.

Radnor departs a project he’s been loosely associated with for years, after appearing in the Roundabout’s starry 2011 reading of “She Loves Me.” Krakowski appeared in that reading as well.

“She Loves Me” is part of a high-profile 50th anniversary season at Roundabout, which has lined up a Broadway slate that also includes “Therese Raquin” with Keira Knightley, “Old Times” with Clive Owen and “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” with Jessica Lange and Michael Shannon.

“She Loves Me” begins preview Feb. 5 ahead of a March 3 opening at Studio 54. The production’s directed by Scott Ellis and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, the duo behind the Roundabout’s well-received recent revival of “On the 20th Century.”
