An intimate and touching show, featuring music by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof) and book by Joe Masteroff (Cabaret), She Loves Me was nominated for five Tony Awards in 1964. The 1993 Broadway revival won the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical and the 1994 Critics Circle Award for Best Musical. Considered by many to be the most charming musical ever written, She Loves Me is a warm romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and a touch of old world elegance.
The musical is the third adaption of the play Parfumerie by Hungarian playwright Miklos Laszlo, following the 1940 James Stewart/Margaret Sullavan film, The Shop around the Corner, and the 1949 Judy Garland/Van Johnson musical version In the Good Old Summertime. It would surface yet again in 1998 as the Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan feature You've Got Mail. This heart-warming story is adored by many.
Set in a 1930s European perfumery, we meet shop clerks, Amalia and Georg, who, more often than not, don't see eye to eye. After both respond to a "lonely hearts advertisement" in the newspaper, they now live for the love letters that they exchange, but the identity of their admirers remains unknown. Join Amalia and Georg to discover the identity of their true loves... and of all the twists and turns along the way!
