Marcel tells all

SW: When we see you fighting the wind on stage, from which direction does it blow?

MM:

Marcel Marceau

Moore Theater October 10-15

SW: You often mime a tug-of-war with an opponent. How long, exactly, is the rope?

MM:

SW: You uttered the only word of dialogue in the 1976 Mel Brooks film Silent Movie. Was that a career mistake? Why haven't you done any more movie work since then?

MM:

SW: You animate silence when you are performing, but when you are offstage, are you talkative?

MM:

SW: Not to interrupt, but in the real world, off stage, street mimes often fall victim to verbal and physical abuse. In numerous instances, innocent pedestrians who find themselves subject to unprovoked mimicry have beaten these performers while onlookers cheered. How would you explain these assaults?

MM:

SW: Does your silence imply consent regarding this vigilante justice?

MM:

SW: We'll take that as a "yes." Finally, what did you think of Shakes the Clown?

MM:
