Maraczek’s Parfumerie, 1930s Eastern Europe. Head clerk Georg Nowack and the newest employee Amalia Balash are in love – just not with each other. In fact you could say that it was loathe at first sight. Each is engaged in a passionate and anonymous correspondence with a ‘Dear Friend’ who they are yet to meet. But it’s not just Georg and Amalia who are dealing with relationship problems. Cashier Ilona Ritter is finding her boyfriend and co-worker Stephen Kodaly a less than reliable lover; owner Mr Maraczek has received some disturbing news about his wife; clerk Ladislov Sipos will do anything to keep his job; and delivery boy Arpad has greater ambitions for his future.

As Christmas approaches and the staff deal with demanding customers and complicated inter-personnel relationships, Georg and Amalia discover the truth about the identities of their unknown correspondents, much to their dismay, or is it in fact, delight?

Featuring the songs Vanilla Ice-Cream, Tonight at Eight and Will He Like Me, She Loves Me is a witty and enchanting chamber musical directed by upcoming director, Erin James.

Reviews

Reviews for the 2016 Broadway revival production

“[a] tasty tale of love lost and found”

- New York Times

“a great pleasure of She Loves Me is in how the songs deepen and sometimes even contradict the conversation.”
