“It would be hard to find a more perfectly romantic musical than SHE LOVES ME,” said Executive Artistic Director Daniel Thomas. “The story itself is timeless – in addition to SHE LOVES ME, the plot is the inspiration for two of the most-loved romantic comedy films: 1940’s THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER and 1998’s YOU’VE GOT MAIL. It’s an evening of joy, laughter, and love, filled with incredible songs and great fun.”

From the songwriting team who brought you FIDDLER ON THE ROOF and FIORELLO! comes an “evening of sheer enchantment” (New York Times). Set in a 1930s perfumery, shop clerks Amalia and Georg are constantly at odds; but when they both unwittingly respond to the other’s “lonely hearts advertisement”, they set out to discover the identity of their secret admirer. Featuring such delightful songs as “Vanilla Ice Cream,” “Will He Like Me,” and the show-stopping “She Loves Me,” this celebrated musical promises an evening of irrepressible charm, and some of the most sensational music to have ever graced a Broadway stage.

The cast of SHE LOVES ME will feature Sophia Alawi* (Ilona), Milo Boland (Ensemble), Bekah Lyn Broas (Ensemble), Ben Chau-Ciu (Ensemble), Will Giammona (Kodaly), Daniel Gilmer (Busboy/Ensemble), Riley McFarland* (Georg), Nick Nakashima* (Sipos), Roeen Nooran (Arpad), Jourdán Olivier-Verdé* (Headwaiter), Deborah Rosengaus (Ensemble), Monica Slater (Ensemble), Marah Sotelo (Amalia), and Lee Strawn* (Mr. Maraczek).

In addition to Peet Cocke, Daniel Thomas, and Leslie Waggoner, the creative team and production staff of SHE LOVES ME includes Tanya Telson* (Stage Manager), Emma Gifford* (Assistant Stage Manager), Brittany Mellerson (Lighting Designer), Adriana Gutierrez (Costume Designer), Kuo-Hao Lo (Scenic Designer), and Stewart Lyle (Technical Director).

*Member of Actors’ Equity Association, the union of professional actors and stage managers.
