Photo Coverage: Remembering Lynn Cohen

As BroadwayWorld previously reported, actress Lynn Cohen who gained fame in "Sex and the City" and "The Hunger Games" died on February 14th. Cohen has appeared in over 120 movies as well as a string of Broadway and Off-Broadway plays and television appearances. She was 86.

Today, BroadwayWorld remembers Cohen with a look back at these photos from our archives...

Cohen's stage career included appearing opposite Vanessa Redgrave in Peter Hall's Orpheus Descending in 1989. She helped develop the legendary Vanya on 42nd Street, which grew from a workshop led by Andre Gregory, including Julianne Moore and Wallace Shawn - the project eventually was adapted by David Mamet and filmed in 1994 with director Louis Malle. Appearing in many Off-Broadway shows, she received the Lucille Lortel Best Featured actress award for her gender reversal performance in the all-women production of I Remember Mama directed by Jack Cummings III.
