BIEN has interviewed one of the most famous Danes in America and a man who himself is a cultural treasure, Ib Melchoir in the latest issue of BIEN.
Ib Melchior was born and educated in Denmark. After graduating from the University of Copenhagen, he joined the English Players, a British theatrical company, and toured Europe with the troupe, first as an actor and later as stage manager and co-director. He actually studied to be a Doctor, but changed his mind. Melchior came to the U.S. in 1937 with the troupe to do a Broadway show.
