SHE LOVES ME (The 1993 Revival Version)

Directed by John D. DiFerdinando
Musical Direction by Julie Eurillo
Choreographed by Dann Dunn

Book by Joe Masteroff
Music by Jerry Bock
Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick
Based on a Play by Miklos Laszlo

In this scented case of mistaken identity and letter writing, two feuding perfume clerks have no idea they are in love. An intimate and touching show, featuring music by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler On The Roof) and book by Joe Masteroff (Cabaret), She Loves Me was nominated for five TONY Awards in 1964, the 1993 Broadway revival won the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical, and the 1994 Critics Circle Award for Best Musical. Considered by many to be the most charming musical ever written, She Loves Me is a warm romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and a touch of old world elegance.

Character Breakdown

Arpad Laszlo

Delivery boy at Maraczek’s Parfumerie. His exuberance is infectious and commitment to his job remarkable. He is ambitious and adorable. Still in his teenage years. He fully expects to own the parfumerie one day – and probably will.

Song: Try Me

Ladislav Sipos

Not the brightest employee at Maraczek’s Parfumerie. A confidant to Georg, he is an optimistic family man who looks like a huggable father. Resigned to this “monotonous” life and being a family man.

Song: Perspective

Ilona Ritter

Employed at Maraczek’s Parfumerie. She is sexy and learned in the ways of romance, but longing for something more from the game of love. Gives the impression of a girl who has been around.

Song: I Resolve

Steven Kodaly

A well respected and liked employee at Maraczek’s Parfumerie. Though he is considered dapper and occasionally charming, he is more of a shallow womanizer.

Song: Ilona

Georg Nowack

An established employee of Maraczek’s Parfumerie, he resembles a hopeless romantic. Shy, intelligent, personable, and soft spoken.

Song: She Loves Me

Mr. Maraczek

Owner of Maraczek’s Parfumerie. With a commanding presence, his dedication to the trade is rivaled only by his faithfulness to his wife. Genial-looking but quite capable of being difficult when the occasion arises.

Song: Days Gone By

Amalia Balash

The eager new employee at Maraczek’s Parfumerie. Despite being a skilled saleswoman, she easily becomes intimidated and nervous. Attractive, bright, and a lover of literature. Can hold a grudge.

Song: Ice Cream

Head Waiter.

Prim and proper, his life is about providing his guests a “romantic atmosphere,” a challenge amidst many disruptions. Strong comedic timing. Comedic tenor, doubles as Ensemble.

Song: Romantic Atmosphere

Bus Boy. Strong comedic timing, strong dancer/mover. Doubles as Ensemble.

Ensemble of townspeople, customers, restaurant patrons and waiters, carolers. Ensemble cast plays a range of memorable characters of all ages. Ensemble sings lovely, tight harmonies; all voice parts needed. STRONG PART SINGING A MUST.
