She Loves Me

It’s a story worth telling twice, or even thrice or fourth-ice. Some know the plot from its source, the 1937 play Parfumerie. Others know it from the James Stewart film The Shop Around the Corner, or the Judy Garland musical In the Good Old Summertime. And modern audiences are certain to recognize its narrative arc from the Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan film You’ve Got Mail, In a Digital Form!. But perhaps the breeziest, and certainly catchiest, incarnation of this story comes in the form of the 1963 Broadway musical She Loves Me.<p>

Set in a perfume shop in Budapest, the show spins a cotton-candy yarn of accidental courtship between bickering employees Georg Nowack and Amalia Balash. Constantly at odds on the job, the hard-headed duo seek solace in writing letters to pen pals discovered through lonely hearts ads in the local paper. What they don’t realize is that their romantic letter-writers are actually each other—a scenario that inspires plenty of laughs while the real-life enemies move toward becoming real-life lovebirds. Adding extra spring and swing to the charming story, She Loves Me features music and lyrics from Tony Award-winners Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, perhaps best known for their work in Fiddler on the Roof.<p>

Raue Center For The Arts

When it originally opened in 1929, the Raue Center For The Arts was dubbed “El Tovar,” though no one knew what that meant—it was jut a term overheard by one of the venue’s founders on a trip to the west coast. Regardless of its meaning (or lack of one), the name seemed to accurately define the theater’s elegance, from the star-filled sky of its ceiling to the facades of Spanish buildings lining its walls.

El Tovar drifted into deterioration over the years, undergoing several different monikers as it switched from owner to owner. Luckily, a generous bequest from Crystal Lake resident Lucile Raue led to a much-needed restoration. A two-year renovation left the theater looking as glamorous as it did when it was El Tovar—seats were reupholstered, and every android usher received an oil change.
