The best hotel I have ever stayed in, is the Lutetia in Paris. This hotel is renowned by its situation on the left bank near Saint-Germain-des -Prés but also sadly known because during the second war, it was requisitioned by the Germans troops and used after the war for prisoners and returnees from concentration camps.
I had the incredible unexpected opportunity to have a double room just for myself for six months in this 4 stars luxury hotel without spending a dime .
At that time, I was part of a theatre company whose manager had the ingenuous idea to write a script which happened in a hotel's bedrooms.
The bedrooms had to be large enough to contain the audience of at least 25 standing people. The fancy was that we acted three times the same scene in front of many people as possible to end the final scene in the big living room of the hotel. This final was achieved in a dramatic convention with a stage and where people could sit at eased as they usually do in a normal theatre.
I have got wonderful memories of that experience.
I have been overwhelmed with the Lutetia, along with Paris.
By the way, we made a success.

The best hotel I have ever stayed in, was the Lutetia in Paris. This hotel is renowned for its situation on the left bank near Saint-Germain-des -Prés but also for a sadder reason, known because during the Second World War, it was requisitioned by the Germans troops and used after the war for prisoners and returnees from concentration camps.

I had the incredible, unexpected opportunity to have a double room just to myself for six months in this 4 stars luxury hotel without spending a dime. At that time, I was part of a theatre company whose manager had the ingenuous idea of writing a play which was set in a hotel's bedrooms. The bedrooms had to be large enough to contain an audience of at least 25 standing people.

The fanciful thing? was that we acted three times the same scene three times in front of as many people as possible, and ended up in the big living room of the hotel for the final scene in the big living room of the hotel. This finale was achieved in a dramatic manner with a stage and places where people could sit at eased as they usually do in a normal theatre. I have got wonderful memories of that experience. I have been overwhelmed by the Lutetia, along with Paris. By the way, we made a success of the production.

Wow - that was a difficult piece to edit - on a different day I'd probably do a different correction!!

This correction suits me perfectly - but it's only quite true that tomorrow is another day.

Thank you, Peter.

The best hotel I have ever stayed in is the Lutetia in Paris. This hotel is renowned for its situation on the left bank near Saint-Germain-des -Prés but also more poignantly because during the Second World War, it was requisitioned by the German troops and used after the war for prisoners and returnees from concentration camps.

I had the incredible, unexpected opportunity to have a double room all to myself for six months in this 4 star luxury hotel without spending a dime . At that time, I was part of a theatre company whose manager had the ingenuous idea of writing a script set in a hotel's bedrooms.

The bedrooms had to be large enough to contain the audience of at least 25 standing people. The idea was that we acted the same scene three times in front of as many people as possible and end the final scene in the big living room of the hotel. This finale was achieved in a dramatic convention with a stage and where people could sit at ease as they usually do in a normal theatre.

I have got wonderful memories of that experience. I was overwhelmed with the Lutetia, along with Paris. By the way, the play was a huge hit!

 

Excellent!
