Lauren Braton to Scream for Ice Cream in MTH Theatre's Production of SHE LOVES ME
The MTH Theater at Crown Center is pleased to announce the cast of She Loves Me, its first book musical of the season. Artistic Director Sarah Crawford will direct a fifteen person ensemble led by Kansas City favorite Lauren Braton in the role of Amalia. The remainder of the cast includes Joshua Balm, Katie Bartow, Patrick Beasley, Elizabeth Birger, Beth Borders, Andy Garrison, Dalton Homolka, Evan Lovelace, Ethan Miller, Eric Morris, Brooke Myers, Fisher Stewart, Jackson Tomlin, and Kyra Weinberger.
With a melodic and witty score by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof) and book by Joe Masteroff (Cabaret), She Loves Me is based on a play by Miklos Laszlo that also became the basis of the classic films The Shop Around the Corner and You've Got Mail. The story follows Amalia and Georg two feuding clerks in a European parfumerie during the 1930s who secretly find solace in their anonymous romantic pen pals, little knowing their respective correspondents are actually each other! The 2016 Broadway revival of She Loves Me was nominated for 8 Tony Awards®, including Best Revival of a Musical! It is widely considered, the most charming musical ever written.
Performances run March 23 through April 9, 2017 at The MTH Theater at Crown Center. For tickets and more information contact the MTH Theater Box Office at 816.221.6987 or mthkc.com.
