The world's most famous mime, Marcel Marceau, will make a rare New York appearance (his first since 1995) for a two-week run at the Sylvia and Danny Kaye Playhouse, March 18-28. The twelve performances will be split into two separate programs. Program A will feature the American premiere of The Soliloquy of Three Poor Souls and an early piece, Bip Looks For a Job. Program B includes a revival of Seven Deadly Sins (last seen in New York in 1964) and the New York premiere of Bip Remembers, a look at growing up in the beginnings of a war-torn century.

For tickets ($30- $45) or more information, call The Kaye Playhouse at (212) 772-4448.

During his NY tenure Marceau will be teaching an intensive workshop at the New York City Center Studios, March 17-28, 1999. For registration call (212) 874-2030.

Marceau will also give one public talk on Sunday, Mar. 21 at 7 PM, hosted by the French Institute Alliance Francaise at the Florence Gould Hall at 22 East 60th Street. For reservations, call (212) 355-6100 ext. 231.

In November 1998, Marceau received one of France's highest honors, being named a Grand Officer of the National Order of Merit. The award was presented to Marceau by French President Jacques Chirac.
