Who doesn't need a little happy ending? "She Loves Me" is being presented by the Eastman Opera Theatre, with music by Jerry Bock and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick. It's an adaptation of the play "Parfumerie" by Hungarian playwright Miklós László and it has the familiarity of a storyline like "You've Got Mail." Coworkers constantly at odds are actually secret pen pals, connected through a lonely hearts ad, and that realization gives us our happy ending. Bock and Harnick are perhaps best known for creating "Fiddler on the Roof," and in "She Loves Me," they brought Hungarian dance influence to the mix. Wilson Southerland will serve as music director for the production.
