She Loves Me
Book by Joe Masterhoff; Music by Jerry Bock; Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick
Directed by Loren Sass
Maraczek's Parfumerie is the setting for this romantic musical about the many entanglements of love. Georg Nowack and his co-workers lead quietly dreary lives as sales assistants in a little boutique in Budapest. That is until Amalia Balash shows up, asking for a job. As soon as she is hired, through no fault of her own, tensions begin to mount inside the store. Just as Georg and Amalia come to hate each other passionately, Georg discovers that Amalia is his secret pen-pal with whom he exchanges "Dear Friend" letters. Georg struggles with how to tell her. How can they reconcile their simultaneous love and hate for each other? “She Loves Me” is a warm romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and a touch of old world elegance and nostalgia, yet it remains as universal and relevant as ever in this age of internet romances.
