This morning we awoke to the saddest and  the most extraordinary  news.  One of Australia’s greatest performers has passed away.  Jon English.

Jon was a great entertainer always giving 500%.  Who can forget his wonderful performances with Simon Gallegher in the Gilbert and Sullivan performances and his profoundly beautiful rock opera, Paris.

To quote the man himself  “we haven’t finished yet …some very important dialogue to do …We haven’t finished yet”

Rest in peace Jon and thank you for all the wonderful memories
