She sings with the power and pain of Judy Garland, the sophistication of Barbra Streisand and the humour and warmth of Judy Holliday.
– Gary Smith, Sit Back And Enjoy As World Goes Round – The Hamilton Spectator (2011)

An accomplished vocalist, Lyla has belted out anthems at sports arenas, recorded in studio with local area musicians, performed numerous musical theatre roles, added her voice to several choirs, and has showcased her unique vocal talents as a soloist in countless venues throughout Southern Ontario. The Hamilton Spectator’s Theatre Critic, Gary Smith, named her one of the Top Theatre Performers of 2014 for her one woman cabaret show, Songs For A 40th Birthday. Lyla’s theatrical talents have been showcased in front of and behind the footlights with The Confidential Musical Theatre Project, Daycar Productions, Drury Lane Theatricals, HammerTheatre, The HamilTEN Festival, Hamilton Theatre Inc., Mixed Theatre, The Peninsula Players, Piccadilly Circus, The Players’ Guild of Hamilton, The Staircase, Stoney Creek Little Theatre, Theatre Ancaster, Theatre Aquarius, and Unveiled Productions.

I don’t usually include non-professional performers in this list, but Lyla Miklos’ cabaret performance at The Staircase in Hamilton forces an exception. Miklos sang a concert that included opera, Broadway and American Songbook standards. It was so daring, so rich, so full of personal passion I could have listened to it all over again.
