died last night after a massive stroke! He was only 57. :~C
I have adored him since I saw him as Jean Valjean in Les Mis in 1990! I saw him as the Phantom in Phantom of the Opera the year after, and again, just a few weeks ago, as the Wizard in Wicked. But he will always be Jean Valjean for me.
Have to go listen to him sing Les Mis now. *sob*
