Hello, everyone! Damianista welcomes you to a new fan story!
Today’s story comes from Germany! Carolin is a published writer, a blogger, and a long-time Damian fan! BIG thanks go to her for taking the time to write her story both in English and German. We start with the German version as a surprise for our German-speaking readers and please scroll down for the English version. ENJOY!
Well, 12 weeks were gone with the wind and The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? has now closed. And, as if we need another reason to celebrate Damian’s work, I would love to take the closing of The Goat as a unique opportunity to celebrate 12 weeks of Damian Lewis on stage. Please enjoy our Fan Fun Goat Party from previews to media appearances to jam sessions to stage door experiences!
Time flies! Damian Lewis was the guest of celebrated Times Talks at Directors Guild Theater a year ago. And I would love to take this opportunity to travel back to that day to re-live the wonderful conversation Damian had with Cara Buckley, a New York Times culture reporter and celebrate the first anniversary of a beautiful friendship with Paige and Joyce with whom I clicked as soon as I met them in the line!

Recently our fair readers have been treated to retellings of our very own encounters with Damian. As hard as they are to believe, both Damianista’s and my posts on meeting Damian this year in London are grounded very much in reality. A fellow fan, Christine Wilson, wrote about a fictional meeting with Damian and got that story published. For real!
Lucky for us, Christine will be stopping by here in a few weeks to share her own Fan Story with us as well. So, something to keep in mind as you look for some summer reading on the beach: Here’s my review of Christine Wilson’s Meeting Damian Lewis. Enjoy!
Well, honestly, I did not think I would make this post. But I am making it, and you know what, it is writing itself! 😀
JaniaJania wrote about our London trip earlier here but then I did another one in May with Lewisto who had given me a London trip for my birthday back in January. We planned it as a week long immersion in London’s history, culture and food. We also planned to see The Goat and do the stage door for a quick hi to Damian; however, we did not think he would have time for a chat and so there would be no need to blog about this trip.
A play is as good as its writing and acting. This is precisely what makes Albee and Lewis’ “The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?” a rare jewel. Yes, it is Edward Albee who wrote it, but it is Damian Lewis who owns it on stage.
