The Menier Chocolate Factory revive the classic 1963 musical She Loves Me for their Christmas musical. Based on the play Parfumerie by Hungarian playwright Miklós László, which also inspired the films The Shop around the Corner and You've Got Mail, She Loves Me features a score by Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock, the collaborators behind Fiddler on the Roof, and has been revived multiple times on Broadway and was last seen in the West End at the Savoy Theatre in 1995.
The score features a string of musical theatre standards including "Vanilla Ice Cream", "A Trip to the Library", "Ilona", "Will He Like Me?", "Dear Friend" and the title song, "She Loves Me".
She Loves Me Synopsis:
