You’ve heard the story. Boy meets girl. Boy and girl bicker. Boy and girl happen to be communicating anonymously, revealing their most private selves to each other and falling in love in the process. From the classic film (we love you, Meg Ryan!) You’ve Got Mail and The Shop Around The Corner to the musical She Loves Me, it’s a template we know well—now check out the original version in Miklós László’s play, Parfumerie. Cast highlights include Richard Schiff, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Deborah Ann Woll and Arye Gross.
