Los Angeles Times- Recommended

"...The comedy is overdone, the amplification system overlays a canned quality onto the singing and the performers stick mostly to the surface of their characters. But I have to confess I ate the whole thing, smiling even as I lapped up the sweet melted remains. "She Loves Me" is at once difficult to get right and impossible to completely mess up."

Charles McNulty

Broadway World- Somewhat Recommended

"...Sure, though SCR's admirable SHE LOVES ME, for the most part, still has many charming, beautifully-staged, and well-sung moments, it also somehow feels like it is slightly reigned in, as if there was a purposeful attempt to downscale some of its built-in whimsy and spirited vivaciousness---particularly in the first act where emotional expressions all seem to sit in the same middle area... never tipping over to too angry or too sad or too happy or too, well, anything (that is, until we meet an over-enunciating maitre d that finds the audience, understandably, giggling heavily for the first time since the show began)."

Stage Scene LA- Highly Recommended

"...If you've ever wondered how much difference a director and cast can make, then head on down to Costa Mesa to see the magic being made by David Ivers' and company in South Coast Repertory's epitome-of-inspired revival of the 1963 Broadway gem She Loves Me."

Theatre Notes- Recommended

"...This extraordinary show boasts a book by Joe Masteroff (Caberet), with lyrics and music by Sheldon Harnick, and Jerry Bock (Fiddler on the Roof and many, many more). Music and dance reign supreme with this show that builds in power and emotion all the way to a standing ovation curtain call"
