Damian Lewis Performs in Noel Coward’s London Calling!

London Calling: A Centenary Celebration

by Gingersnap | | October 5, 2023

Damian Lewis and Indira Varma led Noël Coward’s ‘London Calling!’ at the Duke of York’s theatre in the West End on Thursday, October 5, 2023 in honor of 100 years of the musical revue that catapulted Noël Coward and Gertrude Lawrence to stardom. To celebrate the centenary of Coward’s first publicly performed musical revue, this special performance was staged at the same theatre, with actors Damian Lewis, Indira Varma, Oliver Soden, Lucinda Gosling, Georgi Mottram and Robert Hazle  performing extract sketches from the roles originally created by Coward and Lawrence from the 1923 production.

Damian performed Recalling London Calling, Rain Before Seven and The Swiss Family Whittlebot, as his 90-year-old father, Mr. Watcyn Lewis, watched as a theatergoer. The name ‘Noël Coward’ went up in West End lights for the first time when ‘London Calling!’ opened at the Duke of York’s Theatre on 4 September 1923. View more photos from the event in our Gallery.
