She Loves Me is the third adaptation of the play, Parfumerie by Hungarian playwright, Miklos Laszlo. The first adaptation was the 1940 James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan film, The Shop around the Corner, and the 1949 Judy Garland and Van Johnson musical film, In the Good Old Summertime. The play was later adapted to film once more as the Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks feature, You've Got Mail.

The producer, Lawrence Kasha, initiated the idea for the musical and brought the Pulitzer Prize-winning songwriting team of Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock together with playwright, Joe Masteroff.
