Meet Amalia and Georg, who work as clerks in Maraczek’s Parfumerie - and aren’t exactly the best of friends, have something in common.
They both rapturously 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 love story has been the basis for the films The Shop Around the Corner and You’ve Got Mail.
This is the musical version written by Joe Masteroff (book), Jerry Bock (music) and Sheldon Harnick (lyrics).
Scarlett Strallen returns to the Menier to play Amalia.
