Kyle Jean-Baptiste

30/08/15

The entire LES MISÉRABLES family is shocked and devastated by the sudden and tragic loss of Kyle, a remarkable young talent and tremendous person who made magic – and history – in his Broadway debut. We send our deepest condolences to his family and ask that you respect their privacy in this unimaginably difficult time.

Cameron Mackintosh said, “The tragic loss of Kyle to our company, just as he was on the threshold of a brilliant career, is a numbing reminder of how precious life is. His spirit was infinite and his voice from God – we are all so sad not to have spent more time with him, for he truly was a rare talent and a special person. Our loss is heaven’s gain and our prayers are with his family and friends”.

On Tuesday, September 1, following the evening performance, the Imperial Theatre on Broadway will dim its lights in honour of Kyle. Cleveland's Playhouse Square, where Kyle often appeared before he moved to NYC, will also dim its lights at 9pm on September 1st.
