She Loves Me was adapted from the 1937 play Parfumerie by Miklós Lászlo. It is a musical written by Joe Masteroff, with music by Jerry Bock and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick. There are even movies inspired by it, including You’ve Got Mail featuring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks.
She Loves Me is the story of a small European parfumerie, Maraczek’s, and its many employees. As the story progresses, a relationship unfolds through anonymous letters between Georg Nowack and Amalia Balash. Only there’s a catch: they both work at Maraczek’s! Concurrent with the rendezvous of love, there is an equal amount of comical drama going on with other shop clerks, including the tension-filled relationship between Ilona Ritter and Steven Kodaly, as well as a spunky young boy Arpad, who wants to work at Maraczek’s with the other clerks and his good friend Sipos. It is a comical show that targets themes of love and friendship.
HTC’s She Loves Me will be performed at the Harriton High School auditorium (600 N. Ithan Ave) from April 20-22.
