A Rough Rehearsal, a Suicide and a Broadway Show in Turmoil

Loeffelholz... was worried when he was asked to come in just before a full-cast rehearsal, on June 22, to work with the show’s director, Walter Bobbie, and musical director, Leslie Stifelman. The following Monday, Mr. Loeffelholz met with a representative from Actors’ Equity, the union, to report the interaction. On Thursday evening, [he] sent a round of texts to friends, saying “I love you”; wrote “No joy” on a notepad; and then swallowed a lethal amount of alcohol and pills... The medical examiner ruled the death a suicide.
