Broadway Performer Eric LaJuan Summers Passes Away at 36
by BWW News Desk Apr. 9, 2019

BroadwayWorld is sad to report the death of Broadway performer Eric LaJuan Summers at the age of 36 after a multi-year battle with cancer.

Eric was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri and fell in love with the arts after he began singing in the church and youth symphony choirs. He started his career on Broadway shortly after graduating college as Mereb in Disney's AIDA at the young age of 21. Eric continued to work on Broadway, in regional theatres, and on TV and film with notable credits including Elf, Motown (Astaire Award Outstanding Male Dancer in a Broadway Show), The Wedding Singer, The Greatest Showman and Dreamgirls. Eric was last seen as the Lola Understudy in Kinky Boots on Broadway when he was diagnosed with cancer in 2017 and decided to leave the company to focus on his health.

Eric passed away on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 surrounded by family and friends. The Broadway community has lost a very special performer. His passion, energy, humor and light touched all who were lucky enough to call him a friend and colleague.
