She Loves Me @ Artistry MN
"...a cast of flawless singers,"
"DeYong and Levin have beautiful chemistry at Artistry."
"She invests Amalia with longing on “I Don’t Know His Name” and “Dear Friend.” He shines on the title song..."
-Rohan Preston, Star Tribune
"The male lead, Georg Nowack, is played by Ryan London Levin and I think he was perfect for this role... Levin tone in numbers like "Three letters" and " She Loves Me" was so bright and smooth that it soars across the large theater."
-Brett Burger, Broadway World
"In She Loves Me, he does it all—singing, dancing, mugging, and showering the stage with the range of Georg's emotions, bringing to mind both Jimmy Stewart and Tom Hanks. When he launches full bore into the show's title song, Levin owns the stage."
-Arthur Dorman, Talkin Broadway
January 26 - February 17, 2019
When the witty, confident Amalia Balash charms her way into a job at the perfume shop where Georg Nowack works, he's less than pleased with the new competition. Little do they know, Georg and Amalia both have secret pen pals through the lonely hearts club...and the "Dear Friend" they've each been pouring their heart out to is really a workplace rival! An utterly charming love letter from the golden age of musical theater, She Loves Me features relatable characters, a playful story, and a lively, romantic score from the masterful Bock and Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof).
P.S. Dear Friend, does this story sound familiar? It’s based on the same Hungarian play that inspired the films The Shop Around the Corner and You've Got Mail.

Dirty Business @ History Theater
SIR JOSEPH BALL-
May 4 - 26, 2019
1939. It was said that no man could resist the charm and appeal of secret agent Betty Pack, and that no secret was safe when unsuspecting lovers whispered in her ear, lying helpless in her embrace. Born in Minneapolis, Betty was introduced by her parents to the Washington social scene. Immersed in the world of diplomatic intrigue as a teenager, she married Arthur Pack in 1930, a British diplomat twice her age, but their marriage quickly began to crumble. With fascism on the rise and Nazi appeasement gaining steam on both sides of the pond, Betty’s insatiable desire and fierce intellect would lead her into a series of secret encounters around the globe, and ultimately involve her in a relentless war against the Nazis—one lover at a time. An epic tale of the glamorous Betty Pack, the British spy mistress Vera Atkins, American code breaker Elizebeth Friedman, celebrated performer Josephine Baker and an army of Mutual Friends, all working in the shadows to resist the rising threat of the fifth column of the Third Reich and change the course of WWII. A passionate new musical that is filled with intrigue, deception and intelligence not to be missed.
