An Unexpected Delight!

August 18, 2009

Dear Friends:

Thank you for requesting the following email notice.

Playscripts, Inc. is pleased to announce the publication of “Parfumerie” adapted by E.P. Dowdall.  Visit the website below to read a lengthy sample of the play for free, and to order books and performance rights:

Thank you for your support of new work!

Best wishes,
Jason Pizzarello
Publications Director
Playscripts, Inc.

I’ve been waiting for this e-mail for too, too long, and it’s funny, because just the other day, this play was on my brain. This play was the basis for the movies The Shop Around the Corner and In The Good Old Summertime and the musical “She Loves Me,” and also the inspiration for the AOL commercial with a secondary romantic-comedy plot (too harsh?), You’ve Got Mail.

Do you understand what this means, readers? Can you even fathom how many hours I will spend in front of the mirror, by myself, reading this play aloud? Can you grasp my mixed feelings of glee and shame at having admitted that last part?

I must have this play in my possession. Now.

UPDATE: I know, between this post and the last one, we might have to change the title of this blog to “Annie Loves Romantic Comedies and Doesn’t Care Who Knows It.” Do not smirk: that might actually happen.
