I love it that Ralph Fiennes was in the audience at Wyndham’s Theatre seeing American Buffalo… which tempts me to have us travel back in time to 1995… To a time Ralph Fiennes shares the stage with a 24-year old¬†Damian Lewis in¬†Hamlet¬†— an experience Damian calls a “growing up, coming of age experience” in his career.
