From the creators of Fiddler on the Roof and Cabaret comes this delightful Tony Award winning romantic comedy set in a 1930s European perfumery, where we meet shop clerks, Amalia and Georg, who don’t see eye to eye. After both respond to a “lonely hearts advertisement” in the newspaper, they now live for the love letters that they exchange, but the identity of their admirers remains unknown. Will they find love in the most unexpected of places; right in front of their eyes? This charming musical is one of the inspirations for the Jimmy Stewart classic film The Shop Around the Corner and the beloved Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan romantic comedy You’ve Got Mail.
