The Next Best Theatre Podcast: Episode 23 – “She Loves Me”

By Nicole Ackman 

For this month’s review, Michael SchwartzCasey Lee Clark, Dan Bayer and I are back during this holiday season to discuss “She Loves Me.” Inspired by Miklós László’s Parfumerie, the show follows in the tradition of “The Shop Around the Corner” and “In the Good Old Summertime” by placing the classic Hungarian play in a new context. With a score by the legendary Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock, accompanied by a perfect Joe Masteroff book, “She Loves Me” has stood the test of time to remain one of the most perfect musical comedies to ever grace the Broadway stage. So why does it still feel underrated? We explore that and many other questions and themes around this musical gem. A terrific way to kick off the holiday season.
