New London Barn Playhouse Intern Turned Broadway Actor Dies at 21

A sad note Monday night with news that a former New London Barn Playhouse intern – or barnie as they’re affectionately called – was killed Friday in a tragic accident. 21-year-old Kyle Jean-Baptiste died Friday night after falling from a fire escape in Brooklyn, New York.

Jean-Baptiste interned at the New London Barn Playhouse in 2013, where he performed in four shows, and made history after becoming the first African American to play the lead role in the musical “Les Miserables.”

Jean-Baptiste took his talents to broadway shortly after his internship, where he acted in dozen of plays.
