Did you guys see that Broadway got its first African-American Jean Valjean ever this past Thursday? (Sorry if this is old news, but I just heard about it!)
Kyle Jean-Baptiste usually does the Courfeyrac track, but he went on as an understudy for Valjean this week, and at only 21 years old (!) is also the youngest JVJ ever to hit Broadway. I heard he did great (there’s an *ahem* bootleg of his “Soliloquy” on youtube that would be unethical to link to here, but…).
Big congrats to him, I’m sure it was a thrilling experience!!
