Marcel Marceau

One of the greatest artists of our time now belongs to the ages. Marcel Marceau, the genius mime artist, has passed. He was 80.

His face was an enigma, even though his mask was infamous. He could express a full range of human emotions without uttering a word—an impossibility for Radio folks.

I hope that we will learn more about his life in coming weeks: his work with the French Resistance in WW-II, and how he used the experiences of that time in his life to prepare for his role as the world’s best ambassador for humanity.

All the world’s a stage, but it’s a little emptier tonight with his passing.
