By Miklós László

Directed by James Cady

The Vortex celebrates Christmas in June with this play by Miklós László and adapted by E.P. Dowdall. This new adaptation of the play that inspired the movies You've Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner is a warm, gentle comedy that follows the tangled tale of Parfumerie employee George Horvath. Just days before Christmas, George's boss, Hammerschmidt, fires him after mistakenly suspecting him to be the lover of his unfaithful wife. Meanwhile, George's own love life goes awry when he discovers that the stranger he has fallen in love with through a secret correspondence is none other than Amalia Balash, a co-worker with whom he constantly feuds. For the employees of the Parfumerie, only the truth can lead to a happy resolution in this old-fashioned, romantic Christmas tale.
June 23-July 9, 2023. Thu-Sat 7:30pm; Sun 2pm.

Tickets: $24, $19.
