Broadway rising-star Kyle Jean-Baptiste died Friday after reportedly falling from a fire escape in Brooklyn.
Just a month ago, the 21-year-old made history by being the first black man to play the leading role of Jean Valjean in a Broadway production of "Les Miserables."
Jean-Baptiste was an ensemble performer but was also cast as an understudy for leading man Ramin Karimloo.
