Patrick Lee passes away

I didn't personally know Patrick Lee, but he was an important member of the theatrical community, and will be missed. Good thoughts from me to his loved ones.

From Theatermania

Patrick Lee, a frequent contributor to TheaterMania, passed away earlier this month in Larchmont, New York. He was 51 years old.

Lee was the creator and writer of his own popular blog, Justshowstogoyou.com. He was co-writer and co-founder of the Show Showdown blog, and was also a regular contributor to TDF.com.

He was also a juror for the GLAAD Media Awards, Awards Director of the Independent Theater Bloggers Association, and a member of the Outer Critics Circle.

Lee's work for TheaterMania included reviewing Broadway, Off-Broadway and Off-Off-Broadway shows and writing celebrity features. His recent subjects included actors Sam Underwood, Michael Esper, and Gregory Itzin.

He is survived by his mother, sister, and other family members. Funeral arrangements are still pending.
