Photo Flash: First Look at Marc Salem's MIND OVER CHICAGO at Apollo Theater
The newly designed and renovated Apollo Theater Chicago, 2540 N Lincoln Ave, is excited to present a special limited engagement of Marc Salem's Mind Over Chicago, the latest interactive show in Marc Salem's Mind Over... series, created with tasty local flavor specifically for the Windy City.
Amazing and amusing, Marc's theatrical creations have been hailed as "NOT TO BE MISSED!" by ABC News and "A SUREFIRE 'you-gotta-see-this-show' SHOW!" by Variety. Both fascinating and psychological, his performances have been enjoyed by millions around the world from Broadway and the West End to the Sydney Opera House and Singapore, earning him the name "The King of the Mind-Readers" by Time Out.
Marc's mystifying techniques and quick wit "break the lock" on the minds of randomly selected audience members. He has had the pleasure of outwitting such well-known celebrities as Sting, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Donald Trump, Arthur Miller, Paul Newman, Prince Andrew, Judi Dench, Ronald Reagan, Michael Strahan, Bruce Willis, Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch, Vice President Joe Biden, New York Mayors Koch, Giuliani & Bloomberg, Chicago's own Oprah Winfrey, and many more.
Marc Salem's Mind Over Chicago is produced by Richard Friedman and Rob Kolson. "I am delighted to be working again with my old friend Rob Kolson," said Friedman. "We first worked together on his smash hit show Do the White Thing at the Organic Theater and then we co-produced the long-running Always....Patsy Cline during its extended run at the Apollo Theater Chicago and Victory Gardens Theaters. Marc Salem twice performed his show at my home company, Theater at the Center in Munster, IN, and I realized that, although he's performed on Broadway, the West End, and in many other countries, he'd never had a show within the Chicago city limits. That is about to change in a few short weeks and I think Chicago's collective mind is about to be blown."
Marc Salem's Mind Over Chicago begins previews on Sunday, February 7 and will run through Sunday, March 27, with a press opening on Saturday, February 13 at 8:00 p.m.
