She Loves Me, a Musical Comedy Set in the 1950s at Saddleback College

Posted by CotoBlogzz

Rancho Santa Margarita,  CA – On April 8th through the 17th, the Saddleback College’s  Department of Theatre Arts presents She Loves Me with Book by Joe Masteroff, Music by Jerry Bock, Lyrics by Sheldon Hamick, and based on a play by Miklos Laszio.

Directed by Scott Farthing, musically directed by Lex Leigh, and choreography by Deidre Cavazzi, this charming musical is set in the 1950s where a case of mistaken identity and letter writing brings two feuding perfume clerks to the realization that they are in love. Considered by many to be the most charming musical ever written, this endearing story goes back as far as Jimmy Stewart’s 1940s non-musical version Shop Around the Corner and a much later 1998 version with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, You’ve Got Mail.
