She Loves Me

She Loves Me

December 7-16, 2012 in The Playhouse at Overture

Set in the 1930s, Georg and Amalia are two feuding clerks who secretly find solace in their anonymous romantic pen pals, little knowing their respective correspondents are none other than each other.

Simply put, it’s one of the best shows I’ve seen in Madison in a long time.  Read the full review.

Think of “She Loves Me” as “You’ve Got Mail” set in 1930s Hungary.  Change the bookstore to a perfume shop, add some sweet songs and a few easy dance numbers, and that’s the production Four Seasons Theatre has chosen to close out 2012.  Read the full article.

Preshow Lectures

Fridays at 6:30 pm & Sundays at 1 pm

Dramaturg Bethany Wood will present a preshow lecture providing background on “She Loves Me.” You might not know Hungarian-American playwright Miklos Laszlo or his play “Parfumerie,” but you’ve likely seen one of its descendents. This remarkably pliable play was variously adapted into the movies “The Shop Around the Corner” (with Jimmy Stewart), “In the Good Old Summertime” (with Judy Garland), “You’ve Got Mail” (with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan) and the 1963 musical “She Loves Me” (book by Joe Masteroff, music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick).  Join her for a pre-show discussion of the theatrical and historical context of this delightful musical.


Lead support for the production has been provided by the Pleasant Rowland Fund for Theater, a component of the Madison Community Foundation.  Additional grant funds were received from Wisconsin Arts Board, and Dane Arts.  Thank you to Full Compass and Park Printing Solution for their in kind support.
