The tuneful and clever Bock and Harnick score is well played, as always, by Music Director Anita Ruth's 14-piece pit orchestra. The ensemble (and stage hands, who also get to take a bow) smoothly push the wheeled set pieces around in various formations to become the inside and the outside of the shop, as well as Amalia's bedroom, a hospital room (spoiler alert), restaurant, and various other locations. The cast is dressed in colorful period costumes. (Set design by Rick Polenek, costume design by Ed Gleeman.)
The greeting card industry tell us that this is the season of love. If you buy into that, She Loves Me is a wonderful choice to celebrate the season with a funny and charming romantic comedy. Continuing through February 17.
