Events happening this week at FAU.

1:00 PM to 3:00 PM: “She Loves Me” is considered by many to be the most charming musical ever written. The play is set in a 1930s European perfumery, where rival clerks Amalia and Georg unwittingly fall in love after responding to a “lonely hearts advertisement” in the newspaper. The play, which was nominated for five TONY Awards in 1964 and the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival in 1993, was the basis of the film “You’ve Got Mail.” The music for the play was written by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, who also wrote the music for “Fiddler on the Roof,” and the book was written by Joe Masteroff, who also wrote the book for “Cabaret.” Tickets at www.fauevents.com or 800-564-9539.

2:00 PM to 3:30 PM: “The Royal Family” is a rollicking comedy that offers a thinly-veiled parody of the legendary Barrymore Family (particularly John and Ethel Barrymore) – stars of stage and screen. Written by the comic team of George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber, the play is a joyous romp exploring the eccentricities of one of America’s most “royal” families. Nominated for a TONY Award in 2010 for Best Revival of a Play, “Royal Family” is a real crowd pleaser. Tickets at www.fauevents.com or 800-564-9539
