The image is divided in half from top to bottom. The left features a mans face with "Men are From Mars" on a black background and the right shows a woman's face and reads "Women are From Venus" on a white background.

The Off-Broadway hit comedy Men Are From Mars – Women Are From Venus LIVE!, is a one-man fusion of theatre and stand-up, and is a light-hearted theatrical comedy based on the New York Times #1 best-selling book of the last decade by John Gray.

Moving swiftly through a series of vignettes, the show covers everything from dating and marriage to the bedroom.  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! 

When Mars and Venus collide, the adventures are earth-shatteringly hysterical. It's a great recipe for a date night out: a little storytelling blended with some comedy and a dash of sage wisdom from the book. A delicious evening of entertainment!

Diali Cissokho stands in front of a barn at the center as his two bandmates stand on either side

Diali Cissokho stands in front of a barn at the center as his two bandmates stand on either side

For the past decade, kora player and singer Diali Cissokho (kora and vocals) has called North Carolina home. Hailing from a long line of Senegalese musicians and storytellers known as griots, Cissokho made the transatlantic move to Pittsboro with his wife almost 10 years ago. Shortly afterward, he formed the band Kaira Ba with the aid of native Piedmont musicians John Westmoreland (guitar), Jonathan Henderson (bass), Austin McCall (drums), and Will Ridenour (percussion). Together, they blend the traditions and rhythms of West African music with subtle timbres of the American South. While comparison has been drawn to other notable Senegalese griots, such as Baaba Maal or Youssou N’Dour, the fusion of polyrhythmic percussion, plucky electric guitars, and sprinkles of pedal steel and electric organs makes for a much more individualistic, accessible sound. In essence, Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba makes dance music that bridges the continental divide. ~Sam Haw, IndyWeek
 

Tony Williamson, who received a North Carolina Heritage Award in 2018 in recognition of his contributions to our state’s cultural vitality, is a renowned mandolin player from Chatham County. He’s also a skilled songwriter whose compositions integrate everything from traditional Piedmont string band tunes to classical music and jazz. He writes and plays innovative bluegrass music while maintaining his traditional roots. He was a sought-after session musician and sideman for artists like Sam Bush, David Grisman, Jerry Douglas, and Ricky Skaggs. Not only has he collaborated with other mandolin legends, he has become a mentor to a younger generation of pickers like Sierra Hull, Chris Thile, and Andrew Marlin of Chapel Hill-based Mandolin Orange.
