Parking in the parking structure can be a bit confusing. Fortunately found a security guard. When I told him where I thought I had parked, he explained there was another area with similar markings and then directed me there. Also the parking structure has recently reduced hours of free validated parking from 3 or 4 hours to one. So the next time you drive to this venue and plan to park in the structure, verify if the performance provides parking validation for the entire duration of the show.

Horton Plaza revoked the 4-hour free parking option. It's expensive. Lyceum may be able to sell patrons the $10 voucher to cover parking for the evenings, as the Balboa theater does.

I really liked the first half of the performance. It was witty and funny and very relatable. The second half was more political and, for me, the ongoing stream of witticisms and wordplay became tiresome. I think the actor is very intelligent and...continued

The first half of the show is a rehash of the first show but was quite funny. The second half is very politically controversial. I would not recommend it to my conservative friends who might find the material offensive.

This play was very fast and quick witted. It is hard to imagine how the person who could think all that up can sleep at night. His mind must be very active. It was a great distraction and funny.

Description

Ten years ago Robert Dubac figured out what women want. He popped open a Corona and invited us into his lopsided brain to witness his hilarious thought process known as The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron? This hysterical one-man show went on to become a worldwide phenomenon, proving humor between the sexes is understood in any language. The reviews were stellar.

The bar was set for his sequel, _Male Intellect: The 2nd Coming! _Part theater and part stand-up, Dubac transforms himself into a cast of characters hell-bent on crystallizing life’s ironies. He picks up where he left off—inside his head—ransacking his brain to figure out what women want. Yes, he figured it out last time…but he’s a man, so he forgot.

This show is presented by Miracle Theatre Productions (MTP), the company that operated the Theatre in Old Town (a Goldstar favorite!) for more than 15 years_.

_Robert Dubac strives to raise our collective humor bar by crystallizing the bigger picture with a wit and intellect that is fueled with ire and filled with charm. He is an innovative performer who is always redefining his roles from actor to comic to writer to director.

Performing came early, and by the age of 14 he began pounding the pavement with a magic act that took him from his home city of Atlanta to gigs up and down the southeast coastline on weekends and during school vacations. Dubac studied drama while performing a magic act that slowly evolved into a fine stand-up comedy routine. Oddly enough he was discovered by the rock n’ roll world and toured with such acts as Kenny Loggins, Linda Rondstadt and Jimmy Buffet.

Finding himself right smack in the middle of the stand-up explosion of the seventies, he made the trek out west and successfully rode the comedy wave until it crashed in on itself in the mid-eighties. It was then that Dubac returned to his dramatic roots when he was chosen to study with a select group of actors under the tutelage of the great Sanford Meisner. After completion he succeeded to work in films, sitcoms and even daytime television. In the early nineties he created his hit one-man show _The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron? _which has been touring worldwide ever since.

In 2006 he launched the sequel to _The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron? _titled Male Intellect: The 2nd Coming. Dubac tours the country with both shows while feverishly finishing the final installment of this solo trilogy, The Male Intellect: Piss and Moan.

In his spare time, he directed another solo show titled _Man 1, Bank 0, _and is embarking on a collaborative performance piece with some like-minded satirists titled _The Barbarians of Truth. _
