Doug Field's comedy I Love Paris, directed by Timothy Haskell, opened at the Blue Heron Arts Centre on the 26 Jul 2004, and the show would have celebrated it's first anniversary on the 26 Jul 2005.

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.
