She Loves Me
In this beloved musical, the busiest sales season is quickly approaching for an ensemble of lovable clerks working in a charming 1930s European parfumerie. Among them are Georg and new employee Amalia who are constantly sparring on the job. Off the clock, their barbed words fall away into the sweet nothings they write in letters to their anonymous pen pals. But little do they know, their “dear friend” happens to be each other! Based on the play that inspired films The Shop Around the Corner and You’ve Got Mail and from the theatrical minds behind Fiddler on the Roof and Cabaret, this effervescent, witty, romantic musical will have you falling in love.
