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 will be playing to audiences around the United States and Canada throughout the year. Sexy and fast paced, this show is definitely for adults, but will leave audiences laughing and giggling like little kids.
Starring in this theatrical comedy is Peter Story. Peter has appeared in primetime shows on all three major networks--some of his favorite credits include CSI (directed by Quentin Tarantino), Without a Trace, Ugly Betty and recurring roles on Jay Leno's The Tonight Show and Rob Lowe's The Lyon's Den. He stars opposite Steve Guttenberg in the horror film, Cornered, and can be seen opposite Weed's Elizabeth Perkins in the short, Le Chat Est Mort. He is a proud alum of the New Harmony Project and an avid storyteller with The Moth. Peter's story of how he and his wife won a dream wedding competition was just featured nationally on NPR's The Moth Radio Hour, a show featuring the country's best storytellers. Commenting on the show, Peter said, "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. A delicious evening of entertainment."
