"The barricades have once again gone up on Broadway. Are they worth dropping everything and joining this time? The answer is a resounding "Oui!" Bring your flag."

Photo Flash: LES MIZ, HAMILTON and Playhouse Square Dim Their Lights for Kyle Jean-Baptiste

LES MISERABLES' home, Broadway's Imperial Theatre, along with HAMILTON's marquee at the Richard Rodgers Theatre and Cleveland's Playhouse Square, dimmed their lights tonight, September 1, in honor of Kyle Jean-Baptiste. Scroll down for photos of the tribute!

Jean-Baptiste died on Friday, August 28 at the age of 21 after an accident at home, in which he fell off his mother's fire escape. After the news of Kyle's death, many of Jean-Baptiste's fans and colleagues began using the Twitter hashtag #Dim4Kyle in an effort to encourage the Broadway League to dim the district's lights in his honor.

Kyle made history on July 23 when he became the first African American actor, and the youngest person ever, to play the lead role of 'Jean Valjean' in LES MISERABLES on Broadway.

A native of Brooklyn and a graduate of the Fiorello LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts, Kyle Jean-Baptiste attended Baldwin Wallace University in Ohio where he starred in numerous productions. He also took the stage at Playhouse Square before his big Broadway break. The day after his graduation, he was hired to join the ensemble of Les Miserables and understudy the role of 'Jean Valjean'. Kyle was scheduled to depart Les Miserables on September 6th to join the new Broadway production of THE COLOR PURPLE.
