Every Broadway production of She Loves Me has won only one Tony Award. Jack Cassidy won Best Supporting Actor for the original production and Boyd Gaines won Best Actor for the first revival. The entire cast sounds exemplary on the OBCR, but none of them other than Cassidy were even nominated in their respective categories.

I personally give the edge to the '93 revival over the more recent one which, good as it is, is slightly slicker.

As for Amalia's vocal demands, I believe the high note at the end of Ice Cream was not originally written into the score, but that Barbara Cook chose to sing it, setting quite a standard for future Amalias. I might be wrong about this, but I believe she said as much in interviews.
