The Jerry Herman Ring Theatre is proud to celebrate 75 years of bringing fantastic theatre to South Florida and exemplifying excellence in theatre training. The University of Miami department of Theatre Arts presents, She Loves Me, with a score by the talented duo Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof) and a book by Joe Masteroff (Cabaret). She Loves Me has been adored by many since its Broadway debut in 1963. This year we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of this romantic old fashioned musical. She Loves Me makes its way back to the Alvin Sherman Family Stage on November 13th and runs through November 23rd in the Jerry Herman Ring Theatre on the Coral Gables campus of the University of Miami.
The Musical is based on the play Parfumerie by Hungarian playwright Miklos Laszlo, which became the basis of the classic film The Shop Around the Corner and more recently You’ve Got Mail. This classic golden age musical is a comedy with a sweet, charming, and captivating innocence that is intertwined with an old world poshness and a hint of nostalgia.The musical journey of She Loves Me follows Amalia (Blair Brownstein, NY) and Georg (Brian Reiff, CO), two squabbling clerks in a European parfumerie who secretly find solace as anonymous romantic pen-pals, unknowingly their respective correspondents are actually each other! By turns funny, smart, honest and sentimental, She Loves Me features the show-stopping “Ice Cream,” “Twelve Days to Christmas” and the popular title tune that will have audiences humming along as they leave the theatre.
The Production team for She Loves Me includes: K. April Soroko (Scenic Design), Michiko Kitayama Skinner (Costume Design), Bryan Kaschube (Lighting Design), Megan Ayers (Sound Designer), Steve Lambert (Prop Master), and Samantha Miller (Technical Director).
