She Loves Me reunites Scarlett Strallen with Director Matthew White, following their previous collaboration on Candide at the Menier.
Meet Amalia and Georg, who work as clerks in Maraczek’s Parfumerie — and aren’t exactly the best of friends. However, they have something in common. They both rapturously write to romantic pen pals. Despite the anonymity of their secret admirers, they live for the love letters that they exchange and the day they will finally meet. This enduring love story has been the basis for the films The Shop around the Corner and You’ve Got Mail. The musical version – written by the authors of Fiddler on the Roof – has delighted audiences since its 1963 Broadway premier and features a sparkling score that includes now-classic songs Ice Cream and A Trip to the Library.
She Loves Me has music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and a book by Joe Masteroff, based on a play by Miklos Laszlo.
Tickets go on sale to the Menier Chocolate Factory supporters at 9am on Monday 5 September, with public booking opening at 9am on Wednesday 14 September.
