Marcel’s Pictures

This act is confined entirely to relief, which it is absolutely safe to say Marcel is the peer of the entire world. It is beyond question that never has there been anything the equal of the poses of these subjects. They seem to be able to remain absolutely motionless of any length of time desired, and when in one or two cases they break the picture in view of the audience the applause would apparently indicate that a majority of the patrons had been unable to decide whether they were actually living figures or carvings. There are only six or seven people connected with the act, but what they do is really wonderful. They are bound to make a tremendous hit wherever they appear. 20 min, full stage.
