What Is Your Favorite Love Story?

In the spirit of love lost and found, currently onstage with Match Games at Actors Theatre, we’re soliciting your favorite love stories (personal, literary or whathaveyou). Share an anecdote with us on the Inside Actors Blog by commenting to this post.

I personally have a weak spot for Pride and Prejudice, Emma and Little Women (Jo and the Professor).

    They met in New York in a beautiful apartment overlooking Central Park
    Of course they fell in love
    That’s what this is all about.
    It was the first time for both.

    They fell deeply in love in that beautiful apartment overlooking Central Park South
    They couldn’t believe what had happened to them.
    She said their love couldn’t last,
    But he said that it would last forever.

    They spent many days and nights overlooking Central Park,
    But never even glanced that way
    They stayed within their Paradise
    They had so much to learn about each other.

    He said, “You see? Our love will last forever.”
    She smiled and moved still closer.

    He was a scientist,
    She was a singer.
    He went to New York to give lectures,
    She went to New York to take lessons
    They went to New York to be together.

    Love radiated from them and touched the passers by,
    Even dour New Yorkers grudgingly gave a nostalgic sigh.
    They didn’t try to hide their love; it was as if they were alone,
    They had transcended New York City to a world all their own.

    When they couldn’t live on love alone,
    They dined at La Caravelle.
    And even in that public place she nestled close to him,
    And touched him with affection, no longer caring who might see,
    And in him was born a tenderness unknown ‘til he met her.

    They were in love,
    They were beautiful,
    They were married,
    They were married to two other people… many years ago.

    She said their affair couldn’t last.
    But he said their love would last forever.
    And since the end is in the beginning
    It was so.
