Yianni Stamas congratulates Magic Neighbors Platinum PIA winner Harliquin Merva.
Harliquin was originally scheduled to direct the 2012 Platinum PIAs at the Helen Mills Theater in New York City. But then, emerging director Jesse Geiger was assigned to the post. Harliquin focused instead on the grand finale of the PIAs which featured a preview and premiere from his live theater production in development “Lovington”. Next, in a surprise twist, Harliquin walked away with the Magic Neighbors PIA!
The Platinum PIAs in 2013 will be having their fourth annual ceremony. The PIAs are an important component in the educational mission of NYC AIM.
