If Men are from Mars and women are from Venus, get ready for planets to collide! Nothing is off limits in this wickedly uproarious battle between the sexes in Theresa Rebeck’s new comedy. In Nick and Laila’s historic tavern, the regulars tussle over life’s big questions: male versus female, beer verses wine, possessions versus people.
