Damian Lewis and Alison Mosshart Attend Vogue World: London

Vogue Brings Fashion Fantasia to the West End

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | September 14, 2023

Damian and Alison walked the red carpet in style as they attended the star-studded Vogue World: London show at Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London on Thursday, September 14, 2023. The theme and dress code for the evening was Opening Night for the 1,500 guests. Damian performed on stage in a punchy tartan frock coat and worked the crowd playing a hammy theater usher as part of the original comedy sketch Safety Curtain alongside James McAvoy, James Corden, Sienna Miller and others. The evening concluded with a live performance by the fabulous and talented Annie Lennox singing ‘Sweet Dreams.’ View more photos from the event in our Gallery.

Vogue brought its very own fashion fantasia to the West End as audience members and streaming viewers watched the magazine dramatically bring to life the pages of Vogue. Masterminded by BAFTA- and Olivier-winning director Stephen Daldry, show director Emily Burns, and creative producer Fran Miller, alongside the Vogue team, the evening ran the gamut of the performing arts—opera and ballet and theater, oh my—with a galaxy of fashionable stars ranging from Kate Moss, Jared Leto, Brian Cox and Cindy Crawford to Sophie Okonedo, Ian McKellen, Linda Evangelista and Stormzy. Other guests included Baz Luhrmann, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie and Maisie Williams.

Damian Lewis and John Goodman Head Up This Starry West End of David Mamet’s Classic Play About Small Time Crooks – April 28, 2015

Damian Lewis and John Goodman head up this starry West End of David Mamet’s classic play about small time crooks

It would be mean, cheap and generally a bit dickish to say that Damian Lewis’s big post-‘Homeland’, post-‘Wolf Hall’ return to the London stage is overshadowed by some comedy facial hair. Nonetheless: if you think the above photo of his moustache is a bit on the distracting side then seriously, you should see the thing live.

David Mamet’s classic 1975 play ‘American Buffalo’ is a three hander, and in Daniel Evans’s enjoyable but busy production, Lewis, rising Brit talent Tom Sturridge, and old American hand John Goodman each sort of do their own thing to entertaining if not entirely cohesive effect.

American Buffalo Review: John Goodman, Damian Lewis and Tom Sturridge Dial Up Emotional Tension in David Mamet’s Gift to Actors

This production of David Mamet’s 1975 play is full of gritty dialogue, three fine performances and a splendid set of sideburns, says Henry Hitchings.

David Mamet’s breakthrough play, which dates from 1975, puts male relationships under the microscope and is a gift to actors.

Backstage secrets of American Buffalo: ‘We’re acting out hidden desires’

Damian Lewis, John Goodman and Tom Sturridge tell Mick Brown why they’ll be grappling with ‘primal issues of manhood’ in a new revival of the David Mamet classic

It is a week into rehearsals for the new production of David Mamet’s American Buffalo, and the play’s three actors, John GoodmanDamian Lewis and Tom Sturridge, have been getting to know each other. They have been to lunch. They have been playing poker. (Who won, I ask? “Becca,” says Sturridge ruefully, referring to the production’s youthful assistant stage manager, who has been ruthlessly cleaning them all out.) And, of course, there have been long and earnest discussions about the text.

“There are few things that are more revealing about someone than the way that they talk about a piece of literature or a play,” Sturridge says. “You very quickly come to have a much deeper understanding of someone than you would if you just mingled together in a pub saying, ‘All right, how are you?’ Very quickly we were talking in an intimate way about how people feel.”
