She Loves Me is the story of Georg (Tony Nominee Zachary Levi) and Amalia (Tony Winner Laura Benanti), two clerks at an upscale perfume store that aren’t exactly the best of friends. They are constantly at odds with each other on the job where the sparring coworkers can’t seem to find any common ground. Little do they know they are each other’s anonymous romantic pen pals and each has been falling in love with the other through their shared letters. When the two pen pals agree to meet for the first time a chain of events plays out that keeps them and their friends off- center until the final fade out.
Critics were enchanted with the original production and Marilyn Stasio form Variety called the show “Absolutely flawless…an enchanting revival so charming, you wish it would follow you home.” While Terry Teachout in The Wall Street Journal called the show, “Pure delight! The most romantic of all Broadway musicals.”
