Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus
Peter Story on Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus Live!
Based on the hit book by John Gray that sold more than 50 million copies worldwide, Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus brings the differences between the sexes to life. The evening of vignettes and quips that has already stormed Europe unfolds as Peter Story—seen on CSI and the Tonight Show with Jay Leno—commands the stage. The story-telling prowess that earned him an appearance on NPR's The Moth Radio Hour animates comedic send-ups and earnest anecdotes that brush the bounds of theater, covering topics that include dating, marriage, and such delicate bedroom questions as whether it's appropriate to drink out of the waterbed.
Sovereign Performing Arts Center
The Sovereign Performing Arts Center has been a part of Reading since 1870, and has played many roles in that time. Built as a market, with a Masonic Temple on the upper floors and a bird university on the roof, it soon became the Academy of Music. Then, in 1917, the Rajah Shriners purchased the facility and turned it into a venue for vaudeville, motion pictures, and live appearances, laying the foundation for its current incarnation. Decades later, the Berks County Convention Center Authority purchased the Rajah Theater and treated it to a $7 million renovation, including a new air-conditioning system and more comfortable seating.
