JACKSONVILLE, FL – Men Are From Mars – Women Are From Venus LIVE!, the one-man fusion of theatre and stand-up starring Peter Story and based on the New York Times #1 best-selling book of the last decade by John Gray, will play Jacksonville’s Times-Union Center’s Terry Theater on Saturday, June 8th at 8PM for a one-night-only sneak preview show! Moving swiftly through a series of vignettes, the show covers everything from dating and marriage to the bedroom.
Men Are From Mars – Women Are From Venus LIVE! is more than just the book. 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.
This hysterical show will have couples elbowing each other all evening as they see themselves on stage. Sexy and fast-paced, this show is definitely for adults but will leave audiences laughing and giggling like little kids!
Tickets for Men Are From Mars – Women Are From Venus LIVE! are $45.00 and are available at the Artist Series Box Office between 10AM-5PM, Monday-Friday, at (904) 442-BWAY (2929) and online 24/7 at www.artistseriesjax.org.

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 cheesy horror film, Cornered, and can be seen opposite Weed’s Elizabeth Perkins in the hilarious 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.”
When Mars and Venus collide, the adventures are earth-shatteringly hysterical.
Since being published in 1992, John Gray’s “Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus,” exploring 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 titles in the world. Gray has written 17 books and become one of the most trusted relationship authors today, appearing on the national lecture circuit and on such TV shows as Good Morning America, Oprah, and Larry King Live.
