The latest display in the Maxwell Music Library features the Furman University Lyric Theatre’s presentation of “She Loves Me.”
Mark your calendars for this CLP on Thursday, Feb. 14, and Saturday, Feb. 16, at 8 p.m. in McAlister Auditorium
An intimate and touching show, “She Loves Me” features music by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick (“Fiddler on the Roof”) and book by Joe Masteroff (“Cabaret”). The beloved musical was nominated for five Tony Awards in 1964. The 1993 Broadway revival won the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical. It won 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. The story follows Georg and Amalia, two perfumery clerks who aren’t the best of friends. Constantly bumping heads while on the job, the sparring coworkers can’t seem to find common ground. But little do they know, the anonymous romantic pen pals they have both been falling for happen to be each other. Will love continue to blossom once their identities are finally revealed?
Professor of Voice Grant Knox directs “She Loves Me.” Furman faculty member and collaborative pianist Dewitt Tipton directs music for the performance.
