Opera and Musical Theatre Series presents:: "She Loves Me"3-day event: 11/29/2012 - 12/1/2012
Location: Wilner Auditorium
This warm, romantic musical is set in the 1930s where two feuding clerks in a European parfumerie secretly find solace in their anonymous pen pals not realizing they’re actually writing each other. Based on Miklos Laszio’s “Parfumerie” that inspired “The Shop Around the Corner” and more recently “You’ve Got Mail," this endearing show with old world elegance and nostalgia remains as universal and relevant as ever in this age of internet romance. (Rating G)
