She Loves Me opened and the critics couldn’t love it more. This unassuming 1963 musical comedy about the most epic of pursuits for ordinary folks – the search for true love – is musical theatre at its finest. First of all, the Roundabout production has a masterpiece to work from, with a book by Joe Masteroff, music by Jerry Bock, and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick…their perfectly intertwined contributions create seamless, effortless storytelling.
