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 Live! 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.
Iron City Birmingham
If it were possible, patrons of Iron City Birmingham would be requesting permanent citizenship. The massive entertainment complex, which still has that "new massive entertainment complex" smell, is 22,000 square feet and $6 million worth of everything people leave the house for. Luxurious, but with an industrial appeal, the two-story fortress tickles the eyes with skylights and warm earth tones, all fortified by lustrous stone and woodwork. One region of the complex houses the Iron City Grill, where diners enjoy a white-tablecloth experience while indulging in the latest catches from Alabama Gulf Seafood and organic grub culled from local farmers. Nearby, three concert stages and two bars help ward off doldrums with a non-stop lineup of live entertainment—the main event center hosting touring rock concerts, while the two smaller stages spotlight local acts.
