"She Loves Me" is the story of Georg and Amalia, two feuding clerks in European perfumeries in the 1930s. They secretly find solace in their anonymous romantic pen pals, not knowing they are actually writing to each other. This appealing show, adapted into the popular Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan film, “You’ve Got Mail,” was written by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, and was a Tony Award winner during its first run on Broadway in 1963. The 1993 revival also earned a Tony award.
According to director and choreographer Diane Wargo, of Ewing, the cast of "She Loves Me" is truly marvelous. "This show is packed with talent," Wargo said. She predicts that audiences will be thrilled by the musical numbers. "Every member of the cast is both a strong singer and a good actor. February is the perfect time of year to present this sweet romance." Musical direction is by Nancy Snyder.
