MEN ARE FROM MARS – WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS LIVE!

Sep 06, 2018 - Oct 14, 2018

CLO Cabaret

WHEN MARS AND VENUS COLLIDE, THE ADVENTURES ARE
EARTH-SHATTERINGLY HYSTERICAL!

The Off-Broadway hit comedy MEN ARE FROM MARS – WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS LIVE! is a one-man fusion of theater and stand-up, and is a light-hearted theatrical comedy based on The New York Times #1 best-selling book of the last decade by John Gray. Moving swiftly through a series of vignettes, the show covers everything from dating and marriage to the bedroom. This hysterical show will have couples elbowing each other all evening as they see themselves on stage and groups of friends doubled-over with laughter. Sexy and fast-paced, this show is definitely for adults, but will leave audiences laughing and giggling like little kids! Adult Content
