Zachary Levi replaces Josh Radnor in Broadway revival

NEW YORK (AP) — Zachary Levi is replacing Josh Radnor in the upcoming Broadway revival of "She Loves Me."

The Roundabout Theatre Company said Tuesday that Levi will join Laura Benanti, Jane Krakowski and Gavin Creel in the 1963 romantic musical about two star-crossed co-workers.

Levi played the hero in NBC's "Chuck" for five seasons and made his Broadway debut opposite Krysta Rodriguez in the 2013 musical "First Date." Radnor starred on TV's "How I Met Your Mother." He left the Broadway cast because of scheduling conflicts.

The score — by Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock — includes the songs "Tonight at Eight," ''Will He Like Me?" ''Grand Knowing You" and the title song. Choreography will be by Warren Carlyle. The director is Scott Ellis.

Previews at Studio 54 theater begin Feb. 5.
