ABOUT THE PLAY
She Loves Me
Book by Joe Masteroff  
Music by Jerry Bock, Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick  
Based on a play by Miklos Laszio
Directed by Tobias Andersen
Georg and Amalia are clerks in a European parfumerie during the 1930s who secretly find solace in their anonymous, romantic pen pals, little knowing their correspondents are each other. She Loves Me is a musical with an endearing innocence and a touch of old world elegance and nostalgia, yet as relevant as ever in the age of internet romances.
