Men Are From Mars – Women Are From Venus – LIVE! is more than just the book.
After beginning in Paris in 2007, Men are From Mars–Women are From Venus – LIVE! has been seen by more than one million people around Europe. It debuted in the United States in February 2013 in Raleigh, North Carolina and played to audiences around the United States and Canada throughout the year before moving to Off-Broadway in 2015, where it fast became a hit show with New York audiences. Currently, the production is again touring professional venues in major cities across the United States.
This laugh-out-loud one-man show looks at the way men and women communicate (or miscommunicate). It will have couples elbowing each other all evening as they see themselves on stage in this rollicking examination of gender differences. Sexy and fast paced, this show is definitely for adults, but will leave audiences laughing and giggling like little kids! When Mars and Venus collide, the adventures are earth-shatteringly hysterical. Gray’s book hypothesizes that men and women are so fundamentally different that they can be viewed as being from separate planets, each with its own distinct culture, expectations and emotional responses. Relationships encounter problems because the worldviews of these two planets are often at odds.It’s a great recipe for a night out: a little storytelling blended with some comedy and a dash of sage wisdom from the book.
Amadeo Fusca stars as a man who originally rejected the advice in Gray’s book, until a chance meeting with the author changes his mind and changes how he handles his relationship with a woman. Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Amadeo currently performs on the Upright Citizens Brigade Maude House Sketch Comedy team Hot Bird. In 2013, he won the legendary Friars Club “So You Think You Can Roast?” competition beating out 55 other comedians, roasting 80’s child star Ricky Schroeder, and NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman in the process. As the winner, Amadeo was among those on the dais to roast comedic actor Jack Black, along with comic legends such as the “Roastmaster” General Jeff Ross, Sarah Silverman, Artie Lange, Bob Saget, Amy Schumer and more. Amadeo’s success at the roast landed him two quotes in “Entertainment Weekly’s” funniest jokes of the event. In addition to his comedy, Amadeo also can be seen in various television and film productions. His wide range of dramatic and comedic roles include a co-starring role in the final episode of the HBO hit series “Boardwalk Empire”, a co-starring role in the season finale of the Netflix series Marvel’s “Daredevil”, a co-starring role in the CBS show “As The World Turns”, and a supporting role in the feature film A New York Heartbeat, starring Eric Roberts and Rachel Brosnahan.
Since being published in 1992, John Gray’s Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, exploring the differences between the sexes, has sold in excess of 50 million copies, been translated into 40 different languages and is one of the most recognizable titles in the world. Gray has written 17 books and became one of the most trusted relationship authors during the 80’s, appearing on the national lecture circuit and on such TV shows as “Good Morning America,” “Oprah” and “Larry King Live.”
Producer, St. Louis based Emery Entertainment has produced or promoted thousands of events around the globe, including superstar attractions Blue Man Group, David Copperfield and James Taylor.
The talented team assembled for this production continues with the award winning playwright Eric Coble, direction by Broadway veteran Mindy Cooper, and animation & video production by the talented animators at Bazillion Productions.
