The Hayes Theatre Co announced today that the first of its Artist Led Productions Initiative, She Loves Me will play from August 24.
Directing this production and inaugural recipient of the Artist Led Initiative is AussieTheatre alum Erin James. “She Loves Me is a timeless story about relationships, communication and the fantasy worlds we create to escape the daily grind. Anonymous messaging and online dating are the younger cousins of the lonely-hearts columns of old, and although our current communication methods have advanced beyond the handwritten letters we see in the show, the hearts of humans have not. Whether communication be instantaneous or via snail mail in the post, hearts skip a beat when reading a message from someone special. Even if that someone is a stranger.”
James continues, “I am thrilled and honoured to be directing this gorgeous musical for Hayes Theatre Co’s inaugural Artist Led Initiative, supported by a wonderful team. I love it, and I can’t wait to bring these ‘Dear Friends’ to life.”
Joining James is musical director Steven Kreamer (ASSASSINS, Little Shop of Horrors), choreographer Leslie Bell (Big River) with costumes and set design by Isabel Hudson (The View UpStairs, Dry Land).
