Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus

<i>Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus<i>

G4 Productions

Once upon a time, a book about how men and women are essentially from different worlds dominated the best-seller lists and took over pop culture dialogue. In it, the author advanced a simplistic worldview that proffers anecdotes to back up a seemingly universal predicament: the inability of married men and women to communicate. Today, it’s almost an anthropological relic; the book Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus ignores same-sex couples and other nontraditional relationships, and the oversimplified premise doesn’t consider complicating factors in a relationship. Neither does the stage show of the same name. Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus has a number of elbow-your-date moments; the one-man show mixes the premise of the book with standup comedy. The vignettes contain flashes of identifiable comedy, which, as long as you’re willing to see the reductive premise behind the show for what it is, will provoke a giggle or two. See it at 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 15, and at 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, at the Eisemann Center, 2351 Performance Drive in Richardson. Tickets are $60 at eisemanncenter.com.
