SHE LOVES ME is the charming story of two feuding store clerks, who find comfort in their secret lonely hearts pen pals.  Little do they know, they are actually writing to each other.  A tangle of mistaken identity and funny encounters bring the two soulmates together with the wonderful songs of Bock and Harnick (FIDDLER ON THE ROOF).  This confection of a musical is based on the short story that has served as inspiration for classic movies, The Shop Around the Corner, In the Good Ol’ Summertime and the Meg Ryan-Tom Hanks hit, You Got Mail.
