Broadway’s Tony Winner Ruthie Ann Miles Expecting a Child After Losing Daughter and Unborn Baby in Horrific Disaster


Some good news for a change, make that great news. Ruthie Ann Miles, the great Broadway musical performer and Tony winner, is expecting a new baby.

Ruthie and her husband Jonathan Blumenstein suffered a horrific tragedy on March 5, 2018. She was crossing the street when she was hit by a truck. Her four year old daughter was killed, and so was the baby she by then was pregnant with for seven months.

I met her when she played Imelda Marcos in David Byrne’s brilliant “Here Lies Love” at the Public Theater. She won the Tony in 2015 for “The King and I” musical at Lincoln Center. Ruthie Ann turns 37 in April. She is so talented and lovely. What a wonderful turn of events.

Many many congrats to Ruthie Ann and Jonathan.
