Mary Moody Northen Theatre, the award-winning producing arm of the St. Edward’s University theatre training program, continues its 43rd annual season with the award-winning musical, She Loves Me.
As shop clerks in a 1930’s European perfumery, Amalia and Georg feud constantly. Privately, both respond to a "lonely hearts” advertisement in the newspaper and begin to fall in love with their mysterious pen-pal. As they independently seek to discover the identity of their true loves, they trigger a string of comedic complications leading to the happiest of endings. She Loves Me is a warm, romantic comedy with an endearing innocence and a touch of old-word elegance. 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. Featuring guest artists Jarrett King, Ev Lunning, Jr. and Scott Shipman.
