Marcel Marceau is a frail figure on stage now and, of course, has much less of the vitality of his heyday. But alone in the spotlight with his dexterity and pierrot sentimentality, he captivates an attentive and fond audience. His two highly credentialled assistants also took an ovation. It is a pity their part in the show is confined to holding up placards for the master.
