Milo the Magnificent
Unexpected Stage Company Presents

Alex and Olmsted's

MILO THE MAGNIFICENT

Milo, an aspiring magician - and puppet - charms kids and adults in Alex and Olmsted's Milo the Magnificent. Using stunningly innovative puppetry, Milo presents a variety of magic tricks which don't always go as planned.

Each performance will be followed by a meet and greet with the artists.

Great for all ages!

AWARDS:

2017 Jim Henson Foundation Workshop Grant
2017 Greenbelt Community Foundation Grant

REVIEWS:

"Milo is a bit of a cardboard character, but you cant blame him for that. He's a puppet: specifically, a huge cutout fellow, whose arms, hands and feet belong to one of his creators, and whose changing facial expressions are recorded on flippable circular cards. The duo Alex & Olmsted -- Alex Vernon and Sarah Olmsted Thomas -- invented his world, which includes other puppets made of cleverly repurposed materials. Milo, appearing here as part of the Just Kidding series, aspires to be an illusionist, and while his tricks and experiments rarely work out as planned, children will still find them magical." - The New York Times

"The anchor of The National Puppet Slam, this piece amazed audiences in more ways than one... Performed so masterfully and effectively, the audience is swept away in Milo's quick changes of expression as he struggles and achieves each feat." - The Puppetry Journal
