With many of our area theaters continuing to provide entertainment during this era of COVID-19, Broadway has now added some entertainment of its own. It’s not brand new, but these are great Broadway hits from the past that are now going to be offered via public broadcasting. As of July 24, Great Performances will present Broadway at Home. Once a week, favorite theater productions will be broadcast via PBS including “She Loves Me,” “Present Laughter,” “In the Heights,” “Much Ado About Nothing” and “The King and I.”
“She Loves Me” kicks off the series of great shows on Friday, July 24, at 9 p.m. This romantic musical adaptation with book by Joe Masteroff and music by Jerry Bock opened on Broadway in 1963 was revived in 2016. It is the story of two perfume clerks who don’t get along until they discover they are actually pen pals who have fallen in love.
