Based on the Miklos Laszlo play, Parfumerie, which inspired the movies "The Shop Around the Corner," "In the Good Old Summertime" and "You've Got Mail," She Loves Me (from 1963) concerns feuding co workers who carry on an anonymous letter-writing relationship through a lonely-hearts club. Joe Masteroff penned the book, Jerry Bock the music and Sheldon Harnick the lyrics. Not as well known as Bock and Harnick's Fiddler on the Roof, the show has a light middle-European flavor and includes the standouts "Dear Friend," "Ice Cream," "Tonight at Eight" and "Will He Like Me?"

Dvorsky appeared on Broadway in the lead role of The Scarlet Pimpernel, and did New York City turns in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Passion and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.

Piro has been seen on Broadway as both Cosette and Fantine in Les Misérables and as Ellen in Miss Saigon. She has also performed in many national tours including Sunset Boulevard as Betty Schaefer, The Secret Garden as Lily and as Susan Lawrence in Big.

The cast, directed by Pittsburgh CLO executive producer Van Kaplan, also includes Lenny Wolpe as Mr. Maraczek, David Hess as Mr. Kodaly, Beth Glover as Ilona, Eddie Korbich as Mr. Sipos, John Michael Coppola as Arpad Laszlo, Tim Hartman as Headwaiter, Scott P. Sambuco as Mr. Keller.

Mark Esposito choreographs. Tom Helm musical directs.
