I THE MARQUEE | By Barbara Bladen Politics a Taboo Subject Jimmy Makulis is making a name for himself in America. He'd already made his name well known in his native Greece, except that it was Dimitrios there. The handsome singer is currently balancing out the "Les Girls! Les Girls!" revue at Circle Star Theater. Ten beautiful women and one good looking man. He'd been on the Peninsula before, as the featured singer at the Balkan Village, a Greek restaurant in Mt. View. When the show closes on Sunday, the owners of Zorba The Greek Restaurant in Burlingame have .asked him to appear there for two weeks. Having mastered six languages fluently, he sings comfortably in eight and counts his Greek accent as an asset for future work in this country. "A big Hollywood producer told me I'd be another Rossano Brazzi. I can act and sing so hope to work in films here. Already I am big star in Europe. I made 15 films in Germany and many in Greece but there are many actors like me. In America they will consider me international," the black haired performer explained. Both his grandfather and father were in politics. He is the son of the former Greek consul in Cyprus and one-time labor attache at the British Embassy in Athens. Makulis was the first one in his family to go into show business, a decision that didn't entirely please his parents. ft ft' ft" "A FRIEND TALKED ME INTO ENTERING the amateur auditions at a big theater one night. Important people come from recording companies but is strange and serious public in Athens. They are never polite if you're no good and throw bad eggs, tomatoes and fruit. They liked me and I got offers to appear in big clubs then, so my family wasn't so upset," the six footer related. When asked his position on the Greek political situation, he quickly retorted, "I never mix in politics and can't say whether the new government is good nor not. I have brothers, sister and cousins living there but I keep my opinions to myself." Makulis feels his voice is best suited to modern style songs although he sounds as if he could do justice to operettas and opera. He was a teen age idol in Grece with two gold records to his credit. He explained that the song "Never On Sunday" which he sings in Greece during the "Les Girls" show was never popular in his native country because it sounded like "every other Greek song. And the movie, so popular here with Melina Mercouri, is the same plot they do every other picture over there. Was something new for American audiences but we see that same story many, many times in Greek films." Thursday, January 1?, 1968 Sin Mifeo--13 Millbrae Stages 'Rose Tattoo' Street Gang Turns Into Performers Members of The Blackstone Rangers, a former Chicago street gang who turned their energies to constructive endeavors rather than get into trouble with the law, will perform at the Committee Theater tonight at 8:30 p.m. Oscar Brown, Jr. put the show together 2/2 years ago when he heard some of the members singing in church choirs and school programs. The gang was originally known as the Blackstone Raiders referring to Blackstone Avenue in the Woodlawn district, a negro neighborhood. There are 75 in the company, ranging in age 10 to 30 years. The Afro-American youths toured to the West Coast last year for the Watts Festival. Many of them have never had a music or dance lesson. Gym Turned Into Tabernacle HOLLYWOOD - A Danbury, Conn., gymnasium was converted by Warner Bros.-Seven Arts into a revivalist tabernacle for "Jest of God," starring Joanne Woodward and directed and produced by her husband, Paul Newman. At the gym entrance a slgit in big blue letters said: "Tabernacle of the Risen and Rebon,." When the picture was completed two local college students obtained the sign and it has now become an offbeat headboard for a double bed. MATINEES WED. SAT. SUN. A HOLS. 2 P.M.

"The Rose Tattoo" with the usual Williams characteristics and a more generous helping of humor, will open at the Players' theater, 255 Broadway, Millbrae, on February 2. Two of the actors who brought critical and box office success to the earlier productions will head the cast of "The Rose Tattoo." Jo Anne Gaudio, who was the man-eating hotel keeper of "The Night of the Iguana" and the foolish mother in "The Glass Menagerie" is cast as the Sicilian widow, Serafina della Rose.
