The New London Barn Playhouse Presents The Tony Award Winning Musical SHE LOVES ME, June 29- July 10

Dear Friend,

You are invited to join the New London Barn Playhouse as they whisk you back to the 1930s where the employees of Mr. Maraczek's Parfumerie are hard at work selling products and finding relationships in She Loves Me, running June 29th-July 10th at 7:30PM with Wednesday matinee performances at 2:00PM and Sunday performances at 5:00PM.

Based on the classic movie You've Got Mail and Miklós László's play Parfumerie, the musical She Loves Me follows Amalia and Georg, two store clerks who aren't quite the best of friends. Constantly bumping heads while on the job, the sparring coworkers can't seem to find common ground. But little do they know the anonymous pen pals they have both been falling for happen to be each other! Will love continue to blossom once their identities are finally revealed?

They are so excited to welcome back 2022 acting interns for this production as well as an amazing group of guest artists! Making his New London Barn Playhouse debut, Gilbert L. Bailey ll* (Broadway's Beetlejuice, A Bronx Tale, Book of Mormon) is playing quintessential romantic Georg opposite acting intern and recent Chicago College of Performing Arts graduate Jenessa Altvater, who is playing leading lady Amalia.

Scott Sweatt, playing Ladislav Sipos, is back in New London for another summer after having been in previous Barn Playhouse productions of shows such as Anything Goes, Peter and the Starcatcher, Newsies and Fiddler on the Roof. Yoni Haller, part of the 2022 Acting Intern Company and recent graduate of the Hartt School, plays Arpad Laszlo. Former Barn Playhouse Junior Intern Shane Boucher is swinging in for the male ensemble of She Loves Me. Some of his regional credits include Matilda at Northern Stage, Billy Elliot at Wheelock Family Theater and Oliver at The Palace Theater. Female ensemble swing Carly Mazer is a recent graduate from Northwestern University with degrees in Theater and Psychology. The company will welcome her to the Barn Playhouse this summer! 2022 Acting Intern company makes up the rest of the cast with Katelyn Baughman, Ricky Cardenas, Anne-Sophie Hill, Abby Linderman, Bella Lopez, Keaton Miller, Justin Payton Nelson, Bailey Poe, Daniel Tracht and Nick Traficante.
