Kevin Shinick

Kevin Shinick returns to the role of Paris Hilton from the 20 Jun 2005 in Doug Field's comedy I Love Paris, directed by Timothy Haskell, playing at the Blue Heron Arts Centre.

'Paris Hilton,' has been performed by three separate actors, and now it is returning to its roots with the original actor Kevin Shinick who left the show last winter. It was first performed by Mr Shinick when the show opened on the 26 Jul 2004, and he is now returning to the role in time for the shows first anniversary.

As well as Mr Shinick, the role of Paris Hilton has been played by a 50 year old magician named Ago, and then by actor/dancer Aaron Haskell.

I Love Paris is a one-man show which captures an intimate moment with the world renowned socialite as she prepares to audition for the fifth co-host seat of the ABC daytime television talk show, "The View".

While she waits in the green room, Paris reminisces about her whirlwind life, the high points, the low points and all of the fascinating points in between. Baring it all like never before--her straight to video performance not withstanding--she takes on even the most controversial topics.
