Why Men Love B****** - Based on the book by Sherry Argov.
No one had ever written a book like this on relationships. It takes satire to another level and is not only comical, but very real. It's full of "slices of humor from everyday life that cover everything that frustrates women about men." Sherry Argov shows in this work the way to lose fear, be independent, be sure of yourself and in a fun way to achieve what you want: no more suffering, no more suffering, no cooking to conquer it, no complaining, or sacrificing your own life so that men fall at your feet and so that you are the only thing he thinks about. Don't become anyone's rug.

Starring: Aracely Arámbula, Mauricio Ochmann, and Anastasia Acosta

Produced by: Rubén Lara

Direction: Abril Mayett

Por qué los hombres aman a las cabronas - Basada en el libro de Sherry Argov.

Nadie había escrito un libro como este sobre relaciones. Lleva la sátira a otro nivel. No solo es cómico, sino muy real. Está lleno de “rebanadas de humor de la vida diaria que cubren todo lo que frustran a las mujeres sobre los hombres”. Sherry Argov demuestra en esta obra el camino para perder el miedo, ser independiente, segura de ti y de una forma divertida alcanzar lo que deseas: no más sufrimiento, ni cocinarle para conquistarlo, ni quejarte, ni sacrificar tu propia vida para que el hombre caiga rendido a tus pies y para que tu seas en lo único en que el piense. No te conviertas en el tapete de nadie.

Protagonizada por: Aracely Arámbula, Mauricio Ochmann y Anastasia Acosta

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!

Based on the hilarious hit film, 9 TO 5 is an outrageous, 1980’s era revenge story of friendship and female empowerment. Three women, working at the mercy of their manipulative misogynist boss, live out their wildest workplace fantasy – giving the boss the boot. With a high-energy, huge-hearted score by the iconic Dolly Parton, 9 TO 5 is about finally getting credit…and getting even.

This October, the Carolina Ballet returns to live performance with their new Halloween tradition—The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Artistic Director Zalman Raffael brings Washington Irving’s bonechilling tale to the stage for fans both young and old. The ballet recounts Ichabod Crane, his doomed courtship with Katrina Van Tassel, and his “face-to-face” encounter with the terrifying specter that is the Headless Horseman.

Fans of the supernatural will enjoy this program of frights and delights that include Robert Weiss’ Lady in the WhiteVeil and The Raven. Spine-tingling and eerie, do not be surprised if you stumble upon an ominous ghost, a creepy blackbird or the Headless Horseman himself!

An image of Paula Poundstone she is wearing a white shirt with blue and black striped overalls and a colorful tie. There is a black top hat in her left hand and her right hand is extended above her head holding a black frame.

Paula Poundstone is a comedian and author, known for her smart, observational humor and spontaneous wit. When she isn’t collecting hotel soaps on tour, Paula hosts the popular Starburns Audio podcast, Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone. Nobody is a comedy field guide to life, complete with taste tests, cats of the weeks and leading experts in everything from high-rise window washing to urban chicken farming, copyright law, food safety and surviving a bear attack (although, that guest never made it to the studio…). All put thru the screwball sensibility of Paula Poundstone, while co-host Adam Felber tries, in vain, to keep the show on track.

Paula is included in innumerable lists, documentaries and literary compendiums noting influential standup comedians of our time. Paula’s stand-up special, Cats, Cops and Stuff was named in TIME Magazine as one of The 5 Funniest Stand-Up Specials Ever.

One of the greatest jazz singers of all time intimately shares her loves and her losses. Set in a small bar in Philadelphia, 1959, LADY DAY recounts the life of Billie Holiday, and the unraveling of an addicted artist, through the songs that made her famous. More than a dozen moving musical numbers are interlaced with personal stories, both hard and humorous, to recount a riveting portrait of the lady and her music.
