Damian Spotted at Brasserie Zédel Last Night – Feb 14, 2018

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | February 14, 2018

According to this Tweet, Damian joined Hal Cazalet, singer, actor, composer and lyricist, as a surprise guest at London’s Brasserie Zedel last night in honor of P.G. Wodehouse, who passed away on Valentine’s Day in 1975.  P.G. Wodehouse is one of the great writers of the twentieth century, best known for the Jeeves and Wooster characters. And it seems Damian lent his singing chops for all the Brasserie Zedel guests to hear. According to their website, Brasserie Zedel is a Parisian brewery, American bar and cabaret that serves traditional French food surrounded by a historic Beaux Arts/Art Deco interior.

Synopsis: On holiday in Marrakesh, ordinary couple Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris are caught up in the murky world of Russian dirty money.

McGregor and Harris are trying to repair their fraying marriage, with McGregor’s university lecturer smarting with guilt over an affair with a student and somewhat emasculated by lawyer wife Harris’ higher-earning profession.

He unexpectedly befriends a flamboyantly gregarious, very wealthy, Russian (Stellan Skarsgård) and gets a brief taste of his luxurious existence.

However, he turns out to be a money launderer for the Russian mafia and wants McGregor to pass information to MI6 about his boss’s dealings with leading members of the British establishment.

However, Lewis’ devious superiors are reluctant to grant what Skarsgård requires in return – asylum in Britain for his imperiled family.

Preparation for Old Vic’s 200th Anniversary in May – Feb 12, 2018

Damian and Helen: Old Vic Theatre Ambassadors

by Matthew Hemley | The Stage | February 12, 2018

Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Cate Blanchett and Eileen Atkins are among more than 100 actors, writers and TV personalities announced as ambassadors of the Old Vic as it prepares to mark its 200th anniversary.

They join Imelda Staunton, Ian McKellen, Maxine Peake, Damian Lewis, Derek Jacobi, Janie Dee and Simon Russell Beale as Bicentenary Ambassadors, who will be involved in a variety of initiatives to mark the theatre’s anniversary. These include curating monologues, attending events around the anniversary in May and raising awareness of its education work.

Peake will curate a series of monologues called One Hand Tied Behind Us, to mark International Women’s Day, while Helen McCrory will hold a workshop for aspiring actors. Bertie Carvel will run this year’s London Marathon to raise money for the theatre.

The Old Vic, originally named the Royal Coburg, first opened its doors in 1818 and over the last two centuries has played host to opera, dance, cinema, music hall, classical dramas, variety, clowns, big spectacles and novelty acts. It was the original home of the English National Opera, the Sadler’s Wells dance company and the National Theatre. It has also been a tavern, a college, a coffee house, a lecture hall and a meeting place. The theatre is unique. It stands alone, an independent charity producing groundbreaking work, with no public subsidy, and a social mission running through all it does on and off stage. The adventurous spirit that has permeated every chapter of its history remains as strong today, 200 years on, as it was in 1818.
