She Loves Me

Book by Joe Masteroff, Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, Music by Jerry Bock

Directed by Gaye Taylor Upchurch

Featuring Members of Studio 4

Often referred to as the most charming musical ever written, She Loves Me tells the story of Georg and Amalia, two bickering co-workers who “meet” through a Lonely Hearts column and fall in love as anonymous pen pals.

Sound familiar? It should! She Loves Me was adapted into the classic

Jimmy Stewart-Margaret Sullivan film THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER and more recently, YOU’VE GOT MAIL starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.

This delightfully witty musical romance that has been captivating audiences since its award-winning Broadway premiere in 1963 is directed by distinguished alumna Gaye Taylor Upchurch.

Appropriate for the entire family!
