Where Venus and Mars Collide, Hilariously: The Perfect Pre-Valentine's Date

“Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus LIVE!” Plays the Palace in February 


Book a romantic table for two, buy a diamond engagement ring, inundate your crush with hearts and flowers...OR…laugh your socks off at the Palace Theatre! On Saturday, February 7, at 8:00 pm, the hilarious one-man national touring show based on John Gray’s best-selling book stops in Stamford – just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Since its first publication in 1992, Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, which productively explores 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 literary "brands" in the world.

Written by the award-winning Scottish playwright Eric Coble, Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus LIVE! first premiered in Paris in 2007. That same year, the show debuted in the U.S. starring actor and comedian Peter Storey. 

John Frusciante, a member of New York City's renowned improvisational comedy troupe, Upright Citizen's Brigade, recently took the helm of the national touring show and will star in our Stamford presentation. The Connecticut Post visited with the actor for this interview and feature story

A hilarious fusion of theater and stand-up, Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus LIVE! is much more than an adaptation of the book. 

Moving swiftly through a series of vignettes, the show covers everything from dating and marriage to the bedroom and beyond, and will have couples winking and nudging all evening as they recognize themselves on stage. Although audiences will be kept in stitches,  Frusciante won't be entirely frivolous with the subject matter. 

"The great thing about this show is that it deals with things everyone can relate to," said the actor. "You can see couples relating to it separately when it starts, but then they start holding hands." 

“You leave the theatre with the intent to live in harmony with your partner. Not to be missed!” -- ELLE Magazine.
