She Loves Me Extends at Westport

Westport Country Playhouse has added four additional performance of the romantic musical comedy, She Loves Me, Thursday through Saturday, May 13 – 15, evenings at 8 pm and a Saturday matinee at 4 pm.

The romantic musical is directed by Mark Lamos and celebrates the beginning of the Playhouse’s 80th anniversary season.

"It's just wonderful to see how many have bought tickets to ‘She Loves Me,’” said Lamos. “It's such a celebratory way to begin our 80th season, and it’s a musical that’s tailor made to the intimacy of this wonderful Playhouse. I couldn’t be happier that this extension means even more people will be able to come.”

She Loves Me features a book by Joe Masteroff. Music is by Jerry Bock with lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, who as a team wrote “Fiorello!,” winner of Broadway’s triple crown: Tony Award, New York Critics’ Circle Award and Pulitzer Prize for drama; and “Fiddler on the Roof,” which won nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

The plot involves Georg and Amalia, feuding shop clerks in a 1930s European parfumerie, who unknowingly fall in love via their letters as anonymous romantic pen pals.

Single tickets range from $35 to $55. Students and educators are eligible for half-price discounts. Groups of 10 or more save up to 30 percent. For group sales information call 203-227-5137, x120.
