Sadly, Marcel Marceau has passed away in Paris. The French mime artist was eight-four years old. The cause of his death is not known at this time.
In his fifty year career he never uttered a word on stage, just used his face and body to convey his meanings, which is a remarkable!
When Michael was to do the ‘One Night Only’ show in New York some years ago, Marcel was on stage rehearsing with him when Michael collapsed and was taken to hospital. Sadly, due to this, we never got the opportunity to see Marcel Marceau and Michael work together.
