Stage Door: She Loves Me (and Tony Preview)

2 May 2016 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Overheard whilst exiting Broadway's She Loves Me this weekend:

[surprised] That was just like 'You've Got Mail'!

Bingo, tourist ladies, bingo. She Loves Me, the 1963 musical, currently in the middle of its second Broadway revival, is adapted from the 1937 Hungarian play Parfumerie by Miklós László. It's inspired so many riffs so often you'd think it was a Shakespeare comedy. The play has already resulted in three well-known movies in the form of the touching Jimmy Stewart clasic (The Shop Around the Corner, 1940), an undervalued Judy Garland romance (In the Good Old Summertime, 1949), and the Meg Ryan/Tom Hanks rom-com You've Got Mail (1998). The shop changes as does the mode by which the anonymous lovers correspond without realizing they know and hate each other in real life. Expect an internet catfishing riff on the story in 3...2...1... Anyway, in 1963 the play was adapted into She Loves Me for the musical stage. »

‘She Loves Me’ Broadway Review: Zachary Levi, Laura Benanti Channel Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan in Song

17 March 2016 5:00 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

She Loves Me” is best known for the song “Vanilla Ice Cream,” in which the leading lady expresses her love for a man while eating a carton of ice cream. Barbara Cook, the show’s original Amalia Balash, turned it into her signature song when she reinvented herself as a concert and cabaret singer in the 1970s. This 1963 musical by Joe Masteroff, Jerry Bock, and Sheldon Harnick is also notable for a very different, much less lighthearted reason. What other Broadway musical comedy features a serious suicide attempt before the end of the first act? Scott Ellis’ fine new revival of. »
