Here’s a quick guide to some upcoming arts and cultural events happening around Missoula.
UM’s ‘She Loves Me’
(April 28-30, May 1-8)
A Tony Award-winning musical will cross the stage at the Montana Theatre after a yearlong postponement.
“She Loves Me” brings together the University of Montana’s School of Music and the School of Theatre and Dance, complete with a live orchestra.
According to a UM news release, the romantic story is a “treasured musical adaptation of the play ‘Parfumerie,’ by Miklos Laslo, whose plot was plucked for the Tom Hanks-Meg Ryan classic, “You’ve Got Mail.” In this telling, two shop workers in 1930s Budapest are combative at work yet unknowing pen pals. The music and lyrics were written by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick of “Fiddler on the Roof.”
Associate professor Pamyla Stiehl is directing and choreographing, with MFA candidate Spencer Stern in the music director’s chair.
