Damian and Helen Enjoy An Evening at the Theatre – May 22, 2019

The Lehman Trilogy

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | May 22, 2019

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.

Our Englishman is back on the East Coast from filming Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood in Los Angeles! He, along with Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour and Bee Shaffer (daughter of Wintour), attended the match of Roger Federer of Switzerland and sat in Federer’s players box at Arthur Ashe Stadium on day four of the U.S. Open.

The tournament was held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center Complex, Thursday, August 30, 2018 in the Flushing Meadows neighborhood of the Queens borough of New York City.

Here is the order of play:

Arthur Ashe Stadium

Day Session 

Johanna Larsson vs Angelique Kerber
Roger Federer vs Benoit Paire

Night Session 

Novak Djokovic vs Tennys Sandgren
Maria Sharapova vs Sorana Cirstea

Perhaps Damian is also in attendance to lend support to Maria Sharapova, who helped Bobby Axelrod work on his backhand shot in Billions season 3, episode 10 here.

Before the tournament began Damian hit the Blue Carpet for a fun interview by playing a match game – tennis player version. He was asked which Shakespearean character does Roger Federer, Serena Williams, Venice Williams and Rafael Nadal most closely align with. Find out his answers below and for the full video click here.

Yesterday fans reported seeing Damian and Helen at PBeach Restaurant in Carovigno, a town and comune in the province of Brindisi and region of Apulia, southern Italy. Among the guests like common folk, Damian and Helen partook in good food and drink as they enjoyed the ambiance of cocktail lounge music by Black and Gold. Today images surfaced of the couple and family on a boat trip to visit the sea caves of Polignano a Mare, a town on Italy’s southern Adriatic coast known for beaches like the white-pebble Lama Monachile and also known for the Ponte dei Lapilli cove that is nestled at the bottom of a cliff. And the vacation continued with a little bit of shopping in Lecce, Puglia.

Damian enjoyed some fun in the sun today as the summertime adventures continued at Liquid Leisure Aqua Park – Cable and Boat Lakes.

People of Instagram were reporting numerous sightings of a certain Aquatic Ginger, but it wasn’t until these photos surfaced that confirmed our suspicions.

Liquid Leisure has been UK’s leading watersports facility and home to the largest Aqua Park in the world! It is set on one of the most beautiful private freshwater lakes amongst stunning parkland in the heart of Berkshire.

With the option to wakeboard on their state of the art cable lake, clamber across a floating obstacle course, or just to relax on the beach by the bar, there’s something for all the family to enjoy. Liquid Leisure is also home of the first official Ninja Warrior UK water park. Notice the signage below?
