Musical comedy She Loves Me comes to the Menier Chocolate Factory starring Scarlett Strallen.
Meet Amalia and Georg, who work as clerks in Maraczek’s Parfumerie -- and aren’t exactly the best of friends. However, they have something in common. They both rapturously write to romantic pen pals. Despite the anonymity of their secret admirers, they live for the love letters that they exchange and the day they will finally meet.
This wonderful love story has been the basis for the films The Shop around the Corner and You’ve Got Mail. The musical version – written by the authors of Fiddler on the Roof – has delighted audiences since its 1963 Broadway premier and features a sparkling score that includes the now-classic songs "Ice Cream" and "A Trip to the Library".
She Loves Me will be directed by Matthew White who returns to the Chocolate Factory where he previously directed Candide, Sweet Charity, Little Shop of Horrors and The Last Five Years. Scarlett Strallen returns to the Menier to play Amalia where she previously appeared as Cunegonde in Candide. Her other theatre work includes A Chorus Line (Palladium), Singin' in the Rain (Palace Theatre) and Mary Poppins (West End & Broadway).
Strallen stars alongside Alastair Brookshaw as Ladislav Sipos, Les Dennis as Mr Maraczek, Callum Howells as Arpad Laszlo, Katherine Kingsley as Ilona Ritter, Dominic Tighe as Steven Kodaly, and Mark Umbers as Georg Nowack.
