We Celebrate 30 Months of Fan Fun with 12 weeks of Damian Lewis on Stage

This is a HAPPY week! We’re celebrating Fan Fun with Damian Lewis being LIVE for 30 months. This would not be possible without you, our wonderful readers, so we thank each and every one of you for the love and support you have given us over the last two and a half years. It is a true pleasure to write the posts, share them with you and receive your valuable feedback. It is YOU that make us keep going and going! 

Today we want to share with you a special message from a VERY special reader! Damian told us earlier he read our blog, but him recently acknowledging our work on Twitter has made our day, week, and month. Not that we are expecting anything but this sweet gesture is everything.

Chatty, Chattier, Chattiest: “The Goat” Stage Door with Damian Lewis

Well, honestly, I did not think I would make this post. But I am making it, and you know what, it is writing itself! šŸ˜€

JaniaJania wrote about our London trip earlierĀ hereĀ butĀ 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 Londonā€™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.

I WAS WRONG šŸ˜€

Some of you may know Gozde whose wonderful fan story we published a few months ago here. We met thanks to Damian on Twitter two years ago, clicked immediately, met in London, and stayed in touch since then. So I let her know that I would be in London and we made plans to meet for drinks. I am now leaving it to her to share the story that made this post possible! Continue reading “Chatty, Chattier, Chattiest: “The Goat” Stage Door with Damian Lewis”

Damian Lewis Owns Edward Albee’s The Goat on Stage

A play is as good as its writing and acting. This is precisely what makes Albee and Lewisā€™ “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.

Albeeā€™s The GoatĀ is one of the finest plays I have ever read or seen. I would be extremely lucky if I read a better one in my life time — minimalist and impeccable writing, full of punches back to back to the readerā€™s paradigm of morality.

How I Have Fallen For “The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?”: A Review

ā€œHer breathā€¦ her breath wasā€¦ so sweet, warm, andā€¦ā€ – Martin

As much as I believe in live theater as the best art form ever, I also know, alas, dueĀ to geographical, financial and time constraints, only a limited number of people have access to a particular play staged at a particular place. Thus, I imagine, recording and streamingĀ the plays forĀ fans all overĀ the world would certainly make theatre a more democratic art form andĀ help young generations fall in love with it, too. National Theatre Live, a project initiated by the Royal National Theatre in London,Ā broadcasts, via satellite, live performances of their productions to movie theaters and art centers around the world. I hope, with technology at hand, this becomes common practice sooner than later.

Now, having made my desperate statement about theater,Ā I feel extremely lucky to have seenĀ The Goat, a brilliantly written play turned intoĀ an acting feast in the hands of the ridiculously talented quartet of Damian Lewis, Sophie Okonedo, Jason Hughes and Archie Madekwe. JaniaJania has already written a fantastic review of the playĀ hereĀ and, with a little help from my memory and the pictures I have been able to findĀ online, I will now try my best to “stream” The GoatĀ for you with a bit of commentaryĀ on the side. Hope you enjoy it. Continue reading “How I Have Fallen For “The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?”: A Review”
