Talk about an unbelievable performance! The cast of ‘She Loves Me,’ including Jane Krakowski and Zachary Levi, sang their a medley of songs from their show on the 70th Annual Tony Awards, and they had everyone in awe!
The Tony Awards are always chock full of amazing performances from some of Broadway’s hottest shows, but the cast of She Loves Me proved to be one of the best at the 2016 ceremony! They didn’t just sing one song from their musical, they sang a medley of three: “Ilona,” “She Loves Me,” and “Vanilla Ice Cream.” Now we’re really dying to see the full show!
Thanks to some quick set changes and seamless acting, the She Loves Me cast made us think we were actually watching their show instead of a simple awards show performance! The medley started out with a romantic tune, “Ilona,” featuring Jane Krakowski and Gavin Creel, then switched right into Zachary Levi‘s solo tune (and the title number), “She Loves Me.” Then, to top it all off, the female star of the show, Laura Benanti, delivered an unbelievable vocal performance of “Vanilla Ice Cream.” What an incredible combo!
The “Ilona” performance wasn’t the only reason the 2016 Tonys were a big night for the cast of She Loves Me. Their show received an impressive eight nominations, including Best Revival of a Musical, Best Direction of a Musical, and Best Performance By An Actor In a Leading Role as well as Actress In a Leading Role. No wonder they absolutely killed it on stage, there was so much to celebrate!
Although this year’s Tonys were deemed the “year of Hamilton” thanks to it’s record-breaking 16 nominations, clearly She Loves Me can put up a decent fight — because their performance was flawless! Heck, with performances from the casts of School Of Rock, Fiddler On The Roof, and Waitress, it’s hard to give one musical the spotlight. They’re all fantastic!
