Downstairs Cabaret Theatre is thrilled to announce a limited engagement of Broadway's Marc Salem with his new show MIND OVER ROCHESTER, June 22-24 and July 5-8, 2012.
Salem has entertained and baffled Rochester audiences with his mind-blowing show, MINDGAMES, in multiple engagements at the Downstairs Cabaret Theatre over the past several years. A truly funny, thoroughly astonishing display of mind reading and so much more, Marc Salem is a mentalist like you’ve never experienced.
He doesn’t bend spoons, hypnotize you, or predict your future. But he can tell you what you’re thinking, deduce the serial number on a bill in your wallet, guess the sentence you’ve picked out of a book… and show you how to tap into the power of your own subconscious. He doesn’t have anything up his sleeve except an amazing ability to understand and control the human mind. It’s no wonder his engaging and thoroughly entertaining foray into mind and matter has been a jaw-dropper from Broadway to London’s West End to Sydney’s Opera House.
MIND OVER ROCHESTER features new material never before seen in Rochester. Performances will take place at the Downstairs Cabaret at Winton Place, 3450 Winton Place, Brighton-Henrietta, NY: Friday, June 22 at 8pm, Saturday, June 23 at 5pm and 8pm, Thursday, July 5 at 7pm, Friday, July 6 at 8pm, Saturday, July 7 at 5pm and 8pm and Sunday, July 8 at 3pm.

As an academic he holds advanced degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and New York University, and has been on faculty of several major universities for close to two decades.
