BWW Flashback: Remembering Sylvia Miles

Today BroadwayWorld is remembering Sylvia Miles with a peek into our photo archives.

Miles appeared on Broadway in The Night of the Iguana in 1976 and The Riot Act in 1963.

She appeared Off-Broadway in Ruthless! The Musical in 1992, taking on the role of Sylvia St. Croix. She was one of the few females to play the role.

Miles is perhaps best known for her roles in the films Midnight Cowboy and Farewell, My Lovely, both of which earned her an Academy Award nomination.

Check out our flashback photos of Miles below.
