At Lake City Playhouse, ‘She Loves Me’ brings on all the charm

The 1963 musical “She Loves Me” is charming and quirky, sweet with just a hint of sour. Lake City Playhouse’s production, which wraps up this weekend, features some talented voices, clever bits of stagecraft, and warmth in abundance. Based on the 1937 play “Parfumerie” by Hungarian playwright Miklos Laszlo, “She Loves Me” tells the story of Georg (Daniel Bell) and Amalia (Amy D’Orazi), co-workers in a small Hungarian cosmetics and perfume shop who don’t like each other at all, only to discover they’ve been falling in love as anonymous pen pals.
