  • Damian Lewis on Broadway?! The latest from Baz Bamigboye’s Mail Online column:

    Nicholas Le Provost, Kelly Price and Chuk Iwuji, who will join Damian Lewis, Keira Knightley, Tara Fitzgerald and Dominic Rowan in Martin Crimp’s modern-day version of Moliere’s The Misanthrope.

    Rehearsals begin in London on Monday, …

    Theatre owners and producers from New York have already been on to the London producers, asking to transfer the production – with Keira and Damian – to New York.

    I do know that, for now, the only thing on Keira’s mind is to start rehearsals and get it right in London first. If she did decide to go to New York, then it would be as part of an ensemble.

    In any case, it’s rather more up to Damian whether it goes or not, as he’s the lead. Keira has told friends she’s very much a company player.

    Previews for The Misanthrope open December 7th. Tickets can be booked through the official site. Interested in getting together with other fans? Click here at the Yahoo! Group for more information.

  • From Baz Bamigboy’s Mail Online column:

    Damian Lewis as Alceste – Moliere’s Misanthrope – looks on disdainfully as two photographs illustrate what he regards as the shallowness of society. …

    ‘This Misanthrope is angered by everything he sees around him and yet, at the same time, you might say he’s one of the great romantics in literature,’ Damian told me.

    Yet Alceste has fallen in love with Jennifer, the megastar played by Keira, and she’s unable to provide the truthfulness he seeks.

    Damian added: ‘Alceste is really his own worst enemy because he’s so unutterably rude when showing his dissatisfaction with the people around him.’
