Last year, my husband and I went to see Men are from Mars – Women are from Venus LIVE!, and we enjoyed the show immensely. This year my hubby wasn’t able to attend with me, so I invited my grown daughter. I was a little apprehensive, but we both giggled like two schoolgirls throughout the performance.

This year, Peter Story came with new material, lots of humor, dance, wit and a thorough presentation for understanding the opposite sex. Even with the annoyance of a drunken heckler in the audience; Peter remained professional, continued with his monologue and didn’t skip-a-beat. The demand for his show was so great that this year Peter is in Jacksonville for 4 shows. You won’t want to miss him.

A couple of points that Story brought out were:

  1. 75% of women, who are interested in getting a divorce, don’t have another suitor in mind who they are interested in. The problem is with their spouse and not an outside invasion.
  2. Martians - Men tend to:
  1. Think about what they have got to do
  2. Think about what they don’t have to do &
  3. They want to do their thinking ALONE! Venusians – Women, want to help, and be there for their men. But the man needs SOLITUDE.

It’s true – Men & Women see things differently. Peter Story is here for a few more days to educate (with comedy) and give some antidotes from John Gray’s famous book: “Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus”. This one-man-show will keep you laughing and may help to make things better within your relationship. If there’s nothing that needs improvement, then the show is a hoot anyway.

My daughter was so entertained that she posted a quote from the show on her ‘Face Book’ wall:
“Martians want ‘Trust and Approval’ (T & A), and Venetians want ‘Attention and Understanding’ (AU or in the periodic table, gold).” -Peter Story/'MEN ARE FROM MARS...'
