Say, isn’t that Milo in the publicity photo? Why yes. Yes it is. The short film below explains how he got in such a predicament.


The Latest from East Village Inky HQ:

See Milo Kotis live onstage as Randolph in Kidz Theater’s production of Bye Bye Birdie, July 18-27. Buy them tickets, folks! (Dag! one of the other kidz, excuse me kids, was Eponine in Les Miserables … on Broadway, melonfarmer!)

Congratulations to Inky, aka young filmmaker India Kotis, whose short film, Immigrating to the Promised Land nabbed a regional Gold Key in the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. She also nabbed a Silver one with an excerpt of her play,  What Dreams May Come!

Barnard College

The James Room on the 4th floor of Barnard Hall

This one’s not going to get much in the way of foot traffic, so act like someone in the know and tell all your friends!
