Quentin Oliver Lee, a rich-voiced baritone who starred in the US tour of The Phantom Of The Opera and appeared in a Broadway revival of Caroline, Or Change, died Thursday (Dec 1) after a battle with cancer. He was 34.

Lee’s wife, Angie Lee Graham, announced the death in a post on his Instagram that did not specify the cause. Lee said in the spring that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer.

Lee died peacefully, with a smile on his face, surrounded by his loved ones early Thursday morning, Graham said.

“He was an incredible man, husband, father, son, brother, friend, singer, actor, and disciple of Christ,” Graham said in the post, which included images of the couple and their daughter, Samantha.

“To say ‘he will be dearly missed’ doesn’t reflect the scope of the people and communities he has created and touched,” she wrote. “If we let him, he made us better people.”

Before an October benefit performance in Midtown Manhattan, Graham urged friends on Facebook to attend to “hear possibly Quentin’s last public performance”.

Lee, whose Broadway credits also included an understudy role in Prince Of Broadway and who this year performed Off-Broadway in Oratorio For Living Things, was best known for playing the title role in the Phantom.

“The Phantom family is saddened to hear of the passing of Quentin Oliver Lee,” read a tribute from the Instagram for the Broadway and London Phantom productions.

“Quentin brilliantly led our North American tour in 2018. Our hearts are with Quentin’s family and friends.” – New York Daily News/Tribune News Service
