Marc Salem brings ‘Mind Games’ to Edwards

Daily staff report
VAIL CO, Colorado
Special to the DailyMarc Salem has amazed audiences around the world and even baffled Mike Wallace on a recent 60 Minutes.

Marc Salem, a world-famous mentalist, known for taking his audience on a captivating excursion into the possibilities of the human mind, brings his Broadway performance, “Mind Games,” to Vail on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. The evening is presented by the Chabad Jewish Center.

“He’s a big entertainer. We’re celebrating Jewish life, and there’s no better way to do it than Broadway style here in the Vail Valley,” said Rabbi Dovid Mintz, one of the event organizers.

Salem, who has been a student of the mind for more than 30 years, has amazed audiences around the world and even baffled Mike Wallace on a recent “60 Minutes.” This is his only Colorado performance. In his shows, Salem seems to read audience members’ minds. He correctly calls out the serial numbers on a dollar bill in an audience member’s wallet; he accurately describes an item while blindfolded. He can even change the time on a person’s watch while standing several feet away. Salem doesn’t use hidden cameras or plants in the audience. He offers $100,000 to anyone who can prove he is being helped by secret assistants in making the evening’s remarkable events occur. Salem uses psychological techniques, visual information, a sharp eye for human nature and years of training – all which enable him to peer inside the human brain. To his audience, however, he is a master mind reader. Salem admits that he can read thoughts. But a thought is not the same thing as a mind.

“Let me make a distinction,” Salem said. “To read a mind means I can go in there, and pull out things you don’t want me to get. A thought is something that you’re focused on; 80 percent of the information we convey is not what we say, but how we say it.”
