A romantic, witty and effervescent musical comedy by the creators of Fiddler on the Roof.
In a charming 1930s European perfumery, two salesclerks spar endlessly, saving their sweetest words for an anonymous pen pal. Unbeknownst to them, however, their “dear friend” happens to be each other in a joyful, transcendent, and perfectly crafted escapade featuring the treasured songs “Vanilla Ice Cream,” “A Trip to the Library” and the irrepressible title song.
“A lingering and deeply satisfying sweetness… for those moments when you sense a song in your heart.”
