A Shoutout to Liverpool
by Damianista | damian-lewis.com | May 31, 2019
Damian’s beloved Liverpool will face Tottenham Hotspur in the 2019 UEFA Champions League final at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid, Spain on Saturday, June 1. The two English Premier League heavyweights met two times in this year’s Premier League with Liverpool winning 2-1 both times. Five-time winners Liverpool will be aiming to get their sixth title whereas Hotspurs will be playing to win their first!
Relying on Damian’s earlier tweet we assume he will be in the stadium tomorrow cheering for his Red Men!
And he did a shout out today playing his teeth for all Liverpool Fans out there. You’ll Never Walk Alone.
Is there anything this guy can’t do? 🙂
Go and get it, Red Men, for Damian, for me and for all Liverpool fans!
The Lehman Trilogy

Thespians Damian and Helen, pictured with Ben Power here, attended opening night of award-winning The Lehman Trilogy play at London’s Piccadilly Theatre on Wednesday, May 22, 2019.
They joined Press Night for a VIP preview of the new production. Others in attendance were Adrian Lester, Stephen Mangan, Helen George, Natalie Dormer, Iain Glen and Ben Power.
The Lehman Brothers have opened their doors in the West End for a limited, 16-week run. It is story of a family and a company that changed the world, told in three parts on a single evening.
On a cold September morning in 1844 a young man from Bavaria stands on a New York dockside. Dreaming of a new life in the new world. He is joined by his two brothers and an American epic begins.
163 years later, the firm they establish – Lehman Brothers – spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy, and triggers the largest financial crisis in history.
Bobby Axelrod knows a thing or two about Wallstreet and the financial crisis!
The play was adapted by Ben Power, with Sam Mendes directing Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles who play the Lehman Brothers, their sons and grandsons.
