Phil Patrone

A little more than ten years ago I saw David Mamet’s Speed the Plow at the Lyric Stage and it remains one of the finest productions I have seen of any play anywhere. Phil Patrone was stunning and I became a fan – trying to see any production he was in. I later met him socially through my wife and he was one of the nicest people you could know.

Phil passed away this weekend at a very young age leaving his wife Betsy and 6-year-old daughter Grace. He will be terribly missed by colleagues and fans.

  1. Yes, Oh yes,
    What a wonderful,kind and fine man. I worked with Phil in Sexual Pervesity in Chicago and Twelfth Night. He was a gentleman and an artist. I will remember him forever. I wish his family well and hope they know the great respect his Colleagues held him in. God Bless and Speed.
