With a melodic and witty score by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof) and a wonderful book by Joe Masteroff (Cabaret), She Loves Me is based on a play by Miklos Laszlo that also became the basis of the classic film The Shop Around the Corner and the hit film You've Got Mail. The story follows Amalia and Georg, two feuding clerks in a European parfumerie during the 1930s who secretly find solace in their anonymous romantic pen pals, little knowing their respective correspondents are actually each other! This delightful musical comedy is recommended for ages 8 and up.

Branda Lock's Direction plays toward the many laughs the script gives rise to—often by means of the downright clever way more than a few of the numbers are staged. By the same token, many of the most discerning “laughs” or ‘make you think” moments are left understated, which ironically gives them even greater impact; “It's Incandescent!” (–and like some adolescent) YOU'LL want to scrawl on every wall you see: You'll LOVE “She Loves Me”!

At 55 years of age, She Loves Me may be old enough for senior discounts (and its 1937 source material a year past its 80th birthday), but you'd never know it at the Morgan-Wixson. Not even the slightest bit dated, this early ‘60s Broadway gem continues to charm and delight.
