Marc Breaux

Performer, Choreographer, Assistant
( b. Nov 03, 1924 Carencro, Louisiana, USA - d. Nov 19, 2013 Mesa, Arizona, USA ) Male
Also known as: Mark Breaux
Breaux studied dance at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette before serving in the Navy as a pilot during World War II.

Breaux began as a performer, singing and dancing in the 1950s musicals Catch a Star!, Li'l Abner and Destry Rides Again. While performing in Catch a Star!, he met and married Dee Dee Wood. His and Wood's first

Broadway choreographer job was the 1960 Phil Silvers vehicle Do Re Mi, written by Jule Styne, Adolph Green and Betty Comden.

The New Mr. Breaux also took on television work, on shows like "The United States Steel Hour" and "The Andy WilliamsShow." Dick Van Dyke worked with him and his wife on "The Jack Benny Program," and recommended them to the producers of "Mary Poppins." They worked with Van Dyke again on the musical "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang," creating the memorable number "Doll on a Music Box," in which Van Dyke and Sally Ann Howes perform as life-size music-box figurines.

From 1964-1970, Mr. Breaux and Wood were choreographers on the weekly musical revue series "The Hollywood Palace." Other television credits include a 1972 version of Of Thee I Sing.
