Men Are From Mars – Women Are From Venus Live!
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 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.
Marcus Center for the Performing Arts
During the day, the concrete heights of the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts tower over the waters of the Milwaukee River like an imposing, postmodern fortress. As night falls, however, and patrons meander toward their evening's entertainment, the building’s façade glows with colorful, scintillating lights that hint at the eclectic performances inside. The elegant Uihlein Hall regularly hosts such august organizations as the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and Florentine Opera Company, whereas smaller, more intimate venues such as the Todd Wehr Theater situate audiences close to the stage so they can immerse themselves in dramas or hear the wail of a set builder who smashed his thumb with a hammer.
