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 they exchange with their unknown admirers. Join Amalia and Georg to discover the identity of their true loves... and experience all the twists and turns along the way!
This romantic comedy, with music by Jerry Bock (Fiddler on the Roof), is based on the play Parfumerie by Hungarian playwright Miklós László - also adapted into the films, The Shop Around the Corner (1940), and You’ve Got Mail (1998). She Loves Me showcases a small, but strong ensemble cast playing a range of memorable characters of all ages.
