Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus—Live! Closing (Theater and Galleries) The Short List (Theater) Image

When: Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through March 5 2017

I trust I am not spoiling anything by sharing that Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus—Live! is exactly what you would expect it to be: a two-hour one-man show full of stereotype-heavy ruminations on the differences between men and women, with a little pop psychology courtesy of videos of John Gray, author of the 1992 best seller. I found it slightly misogynistic and extremely heteronormative myself, but that was likely because our guide through Gray's theories, Amadeo Fusca, is a straight man with all the prejudices you might expect. (And also, everyone knows feminists are buzzkills.) Fusca is an energetic and agile performer, though, and he works hard to sell jokes that were ancient 50 years ago. The audience seemed to appreciate him, and that's something, right? —Aimee Levitt
