In this romantic comedy with a soaring score, Amalia and Georg work together at a modest Hungarian parfurmerie. But there is no love lost between them. He thinks she’s stuck up. She thinks he’s arrogant. Each rapturously writes to an anonymous pen pal, and it doesn’t take long for the audience to see they’re in love without realizing it. Through some of the most iconic songs in music theatre (“Vanilla Ice Cream”, “She Loves Me”, “Will He Like Me?”), Georg and Amalia discover the truth and rejoice in their love for each other at the story’s musically delightful conclusion.

Does the story sound familiar? SHE LOVES ME is based on the 1937 play Parfumerie, by Miklós László. Doesn’t sound familiar? And if that doesn’t ring a bell, maybe you’re familiar with the three classic movies that were also inspired by Parfumerie – The Shop Around the Corner (Margaret Sullivan and Jimmy Stewart), In the Good Old Summertime (Judy Garland and Van Johnson) and You’ve Got Mail (Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks). Whether or not you’re familiar with the SHE LOVES ME, you’re sure to fall in love with the music!
