If it loathes and bickers like love—and there’s garland and snowflakes in the background—then it’s probably

Ahh. At least in Toronto, where Soulpepper continues its biannual tradition of remounting Hungarian playwright Miklós László’s
Parfumerie at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts. The play—which you’ve probably seen in its
The Shop Around the Corner or
You’ve Got Mail Hollywood incarnations—was translated and adapted for Soulpepper by resident artists Adam Pettle and Brenda Robins (who also stars in the show) and premiered on stage in 2009.
