We awoke to the news this morning that legend of Australian and New Zealand stage musicals has passed away at the very young age of 57. He had suffered an enormous stroke on Tuesday and died last night.
Rob Guest is most famous for being the longest running actor to play the Phantom in the Phantom of the Opera in the world.
I last saw him on stage performing just a couple of weeks ago, performing as the Wizard in Wicked and he was really awesome and had previously seen him in Phantom as well. It is a great loss for the musical theatre industry here and obviously for his family, friends and cast members.
RIP Rob Guest
