Innovative Designs: Ink It, Stamp It, Create It with Maggie Mathern

Taking a moment to reflect…

on the life of one of our great musical theatre geniuses….Rob Guest.  I awoke to the very sad news that this beloved actor/singer of Australian music theatre died overnight from a stroke.  He will be sadly missed.

Here in Australia he starred in Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera, of which I was privileged to have seen for myself.  An extraordinary talent.  He was the world’s longest serving Phantom, having played the role a record 2289 times in performances over seven years.  More recently he played Captain Von Trapp in The Sound of Music.

Words cannot express how I am feeling this morning, think I will dig out a CD and put it on.  Go and give a loved one a cuddle whilst you can.  Life is too short.

Keep Smiling and Stamping,
