“SHE LOVES ME” TICKETS NOW ON SALE
AT THE SUSAN KATZ THEATRE IN PEMBROKE PINES
First produced on Broadway in 1963, She Loves Me is adapted from the same play that served as the inspiration for the Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks-starring film, "You’ve Got Mail." A pair of feuding perfume shop employees don't realize that they’re secretly and anonymously writing love letters to each other, in this sentimental musical comedy.
She Loves Me, a charming, Tony Award-winning tale of a cute, but arrogant manager, Georg and his spunky new clerk Amalia, also features music by Jerry Block and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, the same pair that wrote the tunes for the Broadway classic, Fiddler On The Roof.
The Two Budapest shop employees, Georg Nowack and Amalia Balash, who are at odds with each other at work, constantly argue, finding solace, and fall in love with their anonymous romantic pen pals, while not suspecting that their respective correspondents are none other than -- each other.
She Loves Me has a melodic and witty score of more than twenty five songs for any audience’s delight. She Loves Me takes center stage from February 24-March 19, 2017. Evenings at 8 p.m., Matinees and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 to $30 at the Theatre’s Box Office located at 17195 Sheridan Street, Pembroke Pines. For other information call 954-437-4884.
