It seems as if love is in the air, as Beck Center for the Arts opens its 80th season with the show “She Loves Me” on the Mackey Main Stage.
The show runs from Sept. 20 through Oct. 20.
“She Loves Me” — considered by many to be one of the most charming musicals ever written — is the winner of the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Revival and the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival.
Show times are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays. There will be no performance on Oct. 19. Tickets are now on sale.
"If there is a musical that anyone should be in love with, this is the musical,” said director Scott Spence in a press release. “I have had a long-time love affair with this show and am thrilled to finally have a chance to share it with Northeast Ohio audiences."
With music by the Tony Award-winning team behind Fiddler on the Roof, Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock have composed unforgettable songs that manage to harken back to the golden age of musical theater.
She Loves Me tells the touching story of Georg and Amalia, two feuding clerks in a 1930s European parfumerie who secretly find romance in their anonymous pen pals, unaware they are corresponding with each other. A warm romantic comedy with endearing innocence and a touch of old-world elegance, She Loves Me is as relevant as ever in this age of internet romances. The New York Times called She Loves Me a “continuously melodic evening of sheer enchantment and complete escape.”
Tickets for the show are $29 for adults, $26 for seniors (65 and older), $12 for students (with valid I.D.), and $10 for children (12 and under).
