Magician and mind reader Mike Paldino makes his return to the Garden State for the first time in 5 years.

A graduate of Seton Hall University, he has spent the better part of the last two decades traveling the country honing his skills.

The show itself is a combination of classic sleight of hand, mindreading, hypnosis, waking suggestion and what he refers to as ‘the weird stuff’, a collection of bazaar antiquities, feats of strength and macabre sideshow stunts. His rendition of Houdini’s needle swallowing has been recognized by his peers as one of the finest of its kind, and even received an award for excellence in performance by the Society of American Magicians in 2001.

This one-night-only performance will be on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 8 p.m. at Cornerstone Playhouse, 74 Main Street in Sussex Borough. The show is appropriate for audiences age 16 and older.

All tickets are reserved seating at $22.50 in advance and $24.50 at the door (incl. $2.50 per ticket service fee). You can buy tickets at the Cornerstone Playhouse Facebook page or go to
