How to describe brilliant, witty mentalist Marc Salem and Mind Over Milwaukee? It’s not a play, it’s not a musical, and it’s certainly not a magic act. So let’s call it an entertainment, tailor- made for a Milwaukee audience. Jaws will drop as Marc separates truth from lies in increasingly amazing ways—and the audience wonders, “How did he do that?!”
