A \u201ccharming jewel of a musical\u201d hits the Wilton Playshop stage next week, with the premiere of She Loves Me, a Broadway adaptation of Mikl\u00f3s L\u00e1szlo\u2019s 1937 play Illatszert\u00e1r \u2014 also known as Parfumerie.The musical revolves around two shop employees, who are consistently at odds with each other, but are unknowingly each other\u2019s secret admirer.\u201cIt\u2019s a feel-good, quirky musical so you\u2019re going to walk away smiling and happy,\u201d said Marcia Maslo, director. \u201cIt\u2019s a love story and it\u2019s just charming. I think anybody \u2014 even if they\u2019re not a theater person, per se \u2014 will enjoy the musical.\u201dOf the approximately 30 people who auditioned in early December, 14 were selected to be part of the She Loves Me cast.\u201cWe asked people to come prepared to sing a song of their choice. If we wanted them to stay, we asked them to read as a character from the show and then we had callbacks a couple days later, where people read with other actors,\u201d explained Ms. Maslo, who has been involved in theater for more than 30 years.\u201cDuring callbacks, the production team got a chance to look at the talent and see what chemistry comes about with different actors and see who really looks and sounds like the part \u2014 or at least how we envision the part.\u201dWeather and illness made rehearsals \u2014 which began the first Sunday of January \u2014 a bit difficult, said Ms. Maslo.\u201cI try to be very respectful of people\u2019s time, being that this is community theater and people have full-time jobs and families and whatnot, so we try to keep the rehearsal schedule to three nights a week,\u201d she said, \u201cbut unfortunately, we had to add some rehearsals.\u201dDespite the challenges, Ms. Maslo said, the cast is in \u201creally good shape.\u201d\u201cWe have everything choreographed, the music is in really good shape and now we\u2019re at the point where we just run things,\u201d she said, \u201cwhich means we run different scenes or an entire act or we run the entire show.\u201d The music She Loves Me is the 30th show Dan Ringuette has musically directed, which means he is responsible for all the music in the show. \u201cBesides the beautiful ballads and up-tempo numbers, you\u2019ll hear a bit of Hungarian czardas \u2014 the show is set in Hungary, after all,\u201d he said, \u201ca little rhumba music, a tango, a bolero set as a patter song and a terrific group number that accelerates to a frantic pace as it counts down the shopping days until Christmas.\u201d Before auditions were even held, Mr. Ringuette said, he worked with the score to familiarize himself with the music and \u201csort out such things as the required vocal ranges for each character and who\u2019s singing in each number.\u201d During rehearsals, Mr. Ringuette said, he \u201ctook a lot of time at the beginning to teach all the parts.\u201d \u201cAs the rehearsal process has progressed, I\u2019ve been reviewing the music when there\u2019s time, and giving notes to the actors as we put the scenes on their feet, so to speak. \u201cFor a couple of the more difficult numbers, I\u2019ve created practice recordings of each vocal part and have shared them with the cast,\u201d he said. Teamwork With any type of production, teamwork is required, said Ms. Maslo, who works with Mr. Ringuette, choreographer Todd Santa Maria and stage manager Laura Ploss every day. \u201cYou\u2019re only as strong as your team is and I think we have a really strong team in place,\u201d she said. \u201cThe four of us work extremely close together and we all communicate really well.\u201d Mr. Ringuette agreed, adding that \u201cworking with Marcia and Todd has been terrific.\u201d \u201cThough I\u2019ve worked with both of them numerous times, we\u2019ve never actually directed together,\u201d he continued, \u201cand the support of the rest of the production staff has been very strong, especially with Laura as our stage manager, who\u2019s always on top of everything.\u201d Mr. Ringuette said working on the production has given him the opportunity to get to know some \u201cwonderfully talented people, and to work with some very dear friends.\u201d \u201cThe cast is really great, and so much fun to work with, bringing exciting ideas to the table,\u201d he said. Opening night She Loves Me premieres Friday, Feb. 27, and Mr. Ringuette said he hopes the audiences enjoy the show just as much as the cast and crew enjoyed putting it together. \u201cIt\u2019s such a cleverly written show that\u2019s funny and poignant, and the music is just beautiful,\u201d he said. \u201cI think audiences will love it.\u201d Ms. Maslo said, it\u2019s nice to see the production \u201ccome to life.\u201d \u201cWe have a really talented cast and there are some really good relationships on stage, and in spite of some of the challenges we\u2019ve had, everyone\u2019s worked really, really hard,\u201d she said, \u201cso it\u2019s really nice to see it blossom and come together.\u201d Ms. Maslo said the most exciting time for an actor is \u201cwhen you\u2019re on stage and you get a reaction from the audience.\u201d \u201cThat could be a lot of things \u2014 that could be applause, that could be laughter, it could be tears, and I think in this show, you have a little bit of all of that,\u201d she said. \u201cI hope the cast enjoys what they\u2019re doing, they showcase their talents and that they evoke a positive response from the audience \u2014 and I think they will, for sure.\u201d The Wilton Playshop production of She Loves Me will show: Friday, Feb. 27, at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 28, at 8 p.m. Sunday, March 1, at 4 p.m. Thursday, March 5, at 8 p.m. Friday, March 6, at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 7, at 8 p.m. Sunday, March 8, at 4 p.m. Thursday, March 12, at 8 p.m. Friday, March 13, at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 14, at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25-30 and may be purchased at wiltonplayshop.org.
