        'She Loves Me' is one of my favorite shows. Written in 1963 by Jerry Bock (music), Sheldon Harnick (lyrics) and Joe Masteroff (book), it had a modest 8 month run on Broadway with Barbara Cook as Amalia Balash, but financially it was flop. It's become a favorite of the Roundabout Theater Company. This is the 2nd revival of the show they have mounted, an earlier revival was in 1993. The show had a short run (five months) in the West End in 1964, and a 1994 West End revival ran a year.

        On 6/30/15 it became the first broadway musical in history to be live streamed.The video is in HD and camera work is excellent. Here are my screen captures from my viewings of the show a few days later streamed from the BroadwayHD library. I had seen the show live in NYC just a couple of weeks earlier. What surprises me here is the amount of facial expression that I didn't remember from the show even though I was seated in row A. The overall order is semi-random within sequences.
