I WISH SANTA WOULD GRANT ME MY WISH TO SEE PAUL GROSS IN PRIVATE LIVES


I love to watch the acting of Paul Gross. I have two movies that I bought years back....Wilby Wonderful and Getting Married in Buffalo Jump. I first was introduced to him in Due South, TV series - bought that too. I adore him in that. Then I bought Slings and Arrows. He is starring in New York City on Broadway right now.


Paul Gross ad Kim Cattrall in Private Lives on Broadways at the Music Box Theatre. I wish Santa would grant me the wish of going to see him in Private Lives. (If you are listening Santa, it is playing through February 5, 2012. And I would need a train ticket and accommodations).

A Good Read ~

Some of the highlights of this scene:

The major donor to the theatre, Mr. Henderson, has been presented a gift just before the evening’s play and has decided to speak to the audience:

….on a personal note, just like to say how ‘specially moved I am to be here tonight. Romeo and Juliet is one of the greatest love stories ever told and one that has special meaning for my wife Carol and me. You see, we’ve been married for 37 years. And in all that time, I don’t think we’ve ever missed a production of this play…that we could get to. Carol can’t be here tonight. She’s in hospital recovering from heart surgery. She’s going to be all right, the doctors tell me. But you know, when I think of all the times that we nearly gave up on each other, I get kind of shaky. I wasn’t much of a husband there for awhile. I’ll tell you that for free. But an experience like this ~ it teaches you something about the power of love. It certainly does. Well….enjoy (the show).

The production of Romeo and Juliet is going on while this dialogue is interspersed with the play’s dialogue:

Ellen: I hate this play

Geoffrey: Yeah

….Romeo to Juliet: My life were better ended by their hate, than death prolong it, wanting of thy love….

Ellen: You watch and feel miserable, if you don’t have that kind of passion in your life. Nobody does. It’s a fantasy. It’s irresponsible.

Geoffrey: Yeah

You know what I think. It’s painfully accurate. Two

idiots meet. They fall in love. They’re happy. Briefly.

Then, all hell breaks loose. Happens all the time.

…..Juliet to Romeo: ….sea, my love as deep. The more I give to thee, the more I have for both…are infinite.

Passchendaele ~ Trailer

Toronto article on Passchendaele, 2008

The Battle of Passchendaele was one of the major battles of the First World War, taking place between July and November 1917. In a series of operations, Entente troops under British command attacked the Imperial German Army. The battle was fought for control of the village of Passchendaele (modern Passendale) near the town of Ypres in West Flanders, Belgium. The objective of the offensive was to achieve a breakthrough, outflanking the German Army's defences, and forcing Germany to withdraw from the Channel Ports. The offensive also served to distract the German army from the French in the Aisne, who were suffering from widespread mutiny.

Lyrics ~
After the guns are silent
After your wounds have healed
After those crosses have been planted in all those fields
After that long boat ride
All the way across the sea
And after this train carries thee

Chorus:
I will love you after the war
I'll love you for always, forever more
I will love you after the war
Forever, for always, and more

After your boots dry
And the tobacco's all but gone
Along with all those postcards you've carried under your arm
After I remember all the words I couldn't say
And after this long night fades away

I will love you after the war
I'll love you for always, forever more
I will love you after the war
Forever, for always, and more

After this blackbird
Lifts up from off your chest
After your soul takes its final rest
My love, I forgive you; you never planned to die
And Love, I'll place two pennies over your eyes

I will love you after the war
I'll love you for always, forever more
I will love youBold after the war
Forever, for always, and more.
