The Menier Chocolate Factory has announced that Scarlett Strallen will return to lead the company of She Loves Me this Christmas. The production reunites Scarlett with director Matthew White, following their previous collaboration on Candide, also at the Menier.
She Loves Me tells the story of Amalia and Georg, who work as clerks in Maraczek’s Parfumerie — and who aren’t exactly the best of friends. However, they have something in common: they both blissfully write to romantic pen pals. Despite the anonymity of their secret admirers, they live for the love letters that they exchange and the day they will finally meet. This enduring love story, which was the inspiration behind the Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks hit You’ve Got Mail, features a sparkling score that includes now-classic songs Ice Cream and A Trip To The Library.
The production will open on 7 December, with previews from 25 November, and runs until 5 March 2017.
Tickets are now on sale for the Menier Chocolate Factory supporters, with public booking opening at 9am on Wednesday 14 September. Visit the official website for full booking details.
