“Musical-comedy heaven! Sweet, witty, and utterly charming! - The Boston Globe
“Spectacular! Not to be missed!” - The Patriot Ledger
“Masterful and utterly irresistible! I can't wait to see it again!” - TheaterMania
She Loves Me is the perfect musical - warm and funny, with what's considered one of the most beautiful scores in the American theatre. Acclaimed since its 1963 premiere and rediscovered in a hit 1993 Broadway revival, She Loves Me has captivated audiences for decades.
This romantic comedy is the story of two lovesick, anonymous pen pals who work together during the day, blissfully unaware that they are writing to each other at night. An endearing tale of unlikely sweethearts and the eccentric colleagues who aid and abet them, She Loves Me is based on Parfumerie, the play that also inspired the Jimmy Stewart classic The Shop Around the Corner, and the Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan film You've Got Mail.
Best known as the songwriting team behind Fiddler on the Roof, Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock's credits include the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning Fiorello!, The Apple Tree, Tenderloin, The Rothchilds, and Cyrano - The Musical. Joe Masteroff also wrote the book for the Kander and Ebb musicals Cabaret and 70, Girls, 70. She Loves Me is the first major musical production by the Huntington in six years, and the final directing assignment for Nicholas Martin in his role as Artistic Director.
