By Kim Piekos Citadel Theatre's She Loves Me transports its audience to a 1930s European perfumery with clerks Amalia and Georg, who rarely see eye-to-eye. After both respond to a newspaper's lonely hearts advertisement, they now live for the love letters that they exchange, though they have no idea who their admirers are. Will they share their truths and find love in time for Christmas?
