Marc Salem's 'Mind Games' Comes to the Mandell JCC
World-renowned Mentalist Marc Salem will take his audience through a series of funny and mystifying mind games at the Mandell Jewish Community Center’s Herbert Gilman Theater on Thursday, April 29, at 7 p.m. as part of the center’s Live @ The Gilman stage series.
The Thomas Hooker Brewing Company will host a “Magic Hour” party in the Chase Family Gallery preceding the 8 p.m. performance.
Using psychological techniques, a sharp eye, a quick wit and 20 years of training, Salem’s mysterious mental gymnastics have become known worldwide through international lectures, numerous talk show appearances and two off-Broadway runs. Throughout his performance, Salem will unlock the minds of audience members and encourage them to figure out how he does it.
Salem is a lecturer, teacher and entertainer, and has been a student of the human mind for over 30 years. He holds advanced degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and New York University.
He has performed around the world including two extended runs on Broadway. The Sydney Opera House, the Edinburgh Festival and Singapore’s Esplanade have also hosted extended runs of Mind Games. He has been featured on the The O’Reilly Factor, CNN and 60 Minutes.
