Australia and New Zealand's musical theatre communities are planning a series of tributes, including a public memorial service in Melbourne, for entertainer Rob Guest, who died this morning after suffering a massive stroke.
Productions including Billy Elliot, The Rocky Horror Show and The Phantom of the Opera will dedicate to Guest, who suffered a massive stroke at just 58 years old.
Friends are planning a public service at a Melbourne theatre - either the Regent or the Princess - with songs and speeches.
Guest's family met this afternoon to discuss arrangements for the service, in about ten days' time, and also a private funeral to be held early next week.( Nighttime sharpens, heightens each sensation...Collapse )
Very sad :( I saw him as the Phantom in Melbourne when I was little, he was the first of many Phantoms I've seen and in my mind always my favourite.
Also, chur to all the New Zealand ONTD'ers \m/
