She Loves Me is a musical with a book by Joe Masteroff, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and music by Jerry Bock.

The musical is the third adaptation of the play Parfumerie by Hungarian playwright Miklós László, following the 1940 James Stewart-Margaret Sullivan film The Shop Around the Corner and the 1949 Judy Garland-Van Johnson musical version In the Good Old Summertime. It surfaced again in 1998 as the Tom Hanks-Meg Ryan feature You've Got Mail. The plot revolves around shop employees Georg Nowack and Amalia Balash who, despite being consistently at odds with each other at work, are unaware that each is the other's secret pen pal who they met through a lonely-hearts ad.

The Character breakdown is as follows:

 
ARPAD LASZLO Delivery boy at Maraczek's Parfumerie. His exuberance is infectious and commitment to his job remarkable. He is ambitious and adorable. Gender: Male; Age: 14 to 17 (or can play that age range); Vocal range top: E4; Vocal range bottom: Bb2.
LADISLAV SIPOS Not the brightest employee at Maraczek's Parfumerie. A confidant to Georg, he is an optimistic family man who looks like a huggable father. Gender: Male; Age: 45 to 55; Vocal range top: E4; Vocal range bottom: A2.
ILONA RITTER Employed at Maraczek's Parfumerie. She is sexy and learned in the ways of romance, but longing for something more from the game of love. Gender: Female; Age: 25 to 35; Vocal range top: E5; Vocal range bottom: F#3.
STEVEN KODALY A well respected and liked employee at Maraczek's Parfumerie. Though he is considered dapper and occasionally charming, he is more of a shallow womanizer. Gender: Male; Age: 25 to 35; Vocal range top: A4; Vocal range bottom: B2.
GEORG NOWACK An established employee of Maraczek's Parfumerie, he resembles a hopeless romantic. Shy, intelligent, and soft spoken. Gender: Male; Age: 25 to 35; Vocal range top: F4; Vocal range bottom: B2.
MR. MARACZEK Owner of Maraczek's Parfumerie. With a commanding presence, his dedication to the trade is rivaled only by his faithfulness to his wife. Gender: Male; Age: 55 to 65; Vocal range top: C4; Vocal range bottom: B2.
AMALIA BALASH The eager new employee at Maraczek's Parfumerie. Despite being a skilled saleswoman, she easily becomes intimated and nervous. Attractive, bright, and a lover of literature. Gender: Female; Age: 20 to 30; Vocal range top: B5; Vocal range bottom: C4.
