For Immediate Release:
SPARKS FLY BETWEEN LONELY HEARTS
AT THE BARN PLAYERS “SHE LOVES ME”
Friday, April 21st through Sunday, May 7th, 2017
The Barn Players are pleased to present the classic romantic musical comedy “She Loves Me.” What happens when young feuding co-workers in 1930s Budapest discover their anonymous romantic pen-pals happen to be one another? Will their mutual disdain continue once they discover the startling truth? Expect melodic fireworks… and perhaps some vanilla ice cream as well!
“She Loves Me” at the Barn Players is directed by Kipp Simmons, with musical direction from Paul Morel, choreography by Valerie Martin, and assistant direction by Korey Childs. Leading roles are being played by Krista Eyler and Brian Shortess. Featured roles are being played by Craig Aikman, Jessica Alcorn, Curtis Crespino, Steven James, Mark Murphy, and Christoph Nevins. Ensemble support is being provided by Whitney Armstrong, Paul Brennan, J.C. Dresslaer, Natasha Gibbons, David Loethen, Kathleen Marx, Matt McGaugh, Kay Noonan, and Miles Wirth.
“We’re excited to bring you this sweet valentine of a show in a different, intimate way. You just might be surprised at how we involve the audience within the story,” says director Kipp Simmons.
From the creators of “Fiddler on the Roof,” the Tony, Drama Desk, and Olivier award winning “She Loves Me” has a book by Joe Masteroff, music by Jerry Bock, and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick. It was adapted from a play by Miklos Laszlo, which has also inspired the classic films, “The Shop Around the Corner,” “In The Good Old Summertime,” and the mega hit, “You’ve Got Mail.” The whole family will fall in love with this heartfelt masterwork!
