Day 298 Men are From Mars Women are From Venus Live!- Girls Night or Date Night -A Night full of Laughs




 In the 90’s I laughed my way through  John Gray’s New York Times # 1 Best selling book, Men are from Mars- Women Are from Venus. This book brilliantly characterized the male vs female perspective on dating, marriage, and intimacy. It was a hysterical read because it all seemed  “so true”. This one man part theatrical and part stand-up Off- Broadway show is based on the book. It is the perfect  lighthearted date night or girls night out.  It’s even a night full of laughs for the guy who is dragged to the show!
Searching to understand 


Reflection

Gray's book focused on the differences in the “male and female brain” with the idea that understanding these  differences  would bring  men and women closer. In the show, Gray visits by video as he narrates cartoon animations that act out how the  brain’s pleasure dopamine receptors differently store points during intended good acts in a relationship. This brought a wave of audience laughter as it all made personal sense.

Amadeo Fusca's show is non-stop high impact energy
Amadeo Fusca uses non- stop high impact energy as he takes us on a hilarious  relationship journey  with his wife from their first date to 5 years later with children. We laugh along because no matter where we are in our own  relationships- dating or married- there is something that resonates as “so true”. You can’t help but laugh as you poke your date or nod in agreement with your girlfriends. 

Originally from Pittsburgh, Fusca has the ability  to make his story seem so real. He interacts with the audience and it’s good  comedy  when he brings the show home by using  Pittsburgh references to the Penguins, Steelers and even pierogies. If “yinz” know what I mean.  

Amadeo Fusca  injects humor for the "guy dragged in" 

This is a perfect date night or girls night out but it’s more. Fusca admits,“no guy would willingly come to this show so I make a point to inject something for that guy dragged in”. He advises  men that if they want to be happy all the time live with a dog. I watched my date laugh along  all night with the  crowd. This show is hysterical and proves that humor can be found in a show about relationships even for Men from Mars.

(Men are From Mars Women are From Venus Live! runs until October 14, 2018 at the Greer Cabaret Theater. For tickets go to Pittsburghclo.org)

 Spiritual Reflection
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. (1 Peter 4:8)
