She Loves Me
by The Public Theater

Jun. 03 - Jun. 12
Thursdays-Sundays

Set in a 1930s European perfumery, we meet shop clerks Amalia and Georg, who, more often than not, don’t see eye to eye. After both respond to a “lonely hearts advertisement” in the newspaper, they now live for the love letters that they exchange, but the identity of their admirers remains unknown. Join Amalia and Georg to discover the identity of their true loves… and of all the twists and turns along the way! (MTIshows.com)

 

The Public Theater is proud to announce the cast for fan-favorite She Loves Me featuring music by Jerry Bock, with lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and based on a play by Miklos Laszlo. under the direction of Donna Provencher, with musical direction by Jaime Ramirez, and choreography by Scott Conway. 

 

With this timeless love story, Director Donna Provencher expressed her enthusiasm for directing this summer production “After two years of turmoil in the world writ large, it’s a breath of fresh air to be bring She Loves Me to life here at the Public Theater — a show that unapologetically extols the simple things in life: friendship, falling in love, and of course, vanilla ice cream. Some art makes peace with the darkness, but She Loves Me provides a healing escape into a paroxysm of laughter. It's an honor to stage it alongside a talented, hard-working and diverse cast, crew, and production team at this moment in time, since it’s a show about the joy of the mundane, the power of community, and the redemptive nature of love — lessons we need in a post-Covid world more than ever.”
