Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Now in its third year, Act II Entertainment has found its groove and closes the winter season for the first time with its future secure.
This was to be the defining season for Act II. With Owner / Partner Danny Mininni taking on the role of Red Room Artistic Director, as well as managing partner and Artistic Director for The Main Stage theater, would the task prove to be too much?
"As we close out our third winter season, we are happy to report a 300% increase in sales," reports Danny. "With thirty-six new shows and more than 600 performances, Act II has come a long way in just one season."
What will the Spring / Summer season bring to Puerto Vallarta? If there is one thing Act II has learned over the last two summers it is that the year-round expat community is getting larger every year with more and more expats staying all summer.
With this in mind, it will be their goal to cater to the needs of those who live here year-round on a fixed income. Act II will be producing more budget friendly events, starting on April 7th with its famous Act II Karaoke Party every Thursday starting at 7:00 pm, with happy hour 2x1 drinks served from 6:00 pm till 8:00 pm.
Other fun events include their new Movie Music Sing Alongs with hosts Alfonso Lopez, Act II Entertainment's Musical Director, and Voice of Vallarta alum, Marsha Ward Ross. The fun starts on Tuesday, April 26th with a cocktail hour at 7:00 pm, this evening will also include Stand Up BINGO benefiting PVGMC - The Puerto Vallarta Gay Men's Chorus.
Look for more exciting Spring / Summer fun activities to be announced soon.

Opening Night: Sunday, April 3 at 7:30 pm
Paul Fracassi, 'The Jersey Kid' of Toronto, Canada, has managed to create a big fuss up in Canada as a previous "Canadian Idol" finalist and soon after Puerto Vallarta fell in Love with this new singing sensation in his shows Walk Like a Man and Legends of the 50's and 60's. His voice has been compared to the great crooners of the American songbook and especially the high vocal range of Frankie Valli. Paul will be performing his 20th Century Crooners April 3, 6, 10 and 13th before leaving PV for his Summer tour.
Brittany Kingery, 'Hasten Down The Wind,' a Linda Ronstadt Retrospective
Opening Night: Monday, April 4th at 7:30 pm
An award-winning vocalist and songwriter, Brittany is plenty busy with her own music, completing a season of shows at the Red Room in Puerto Vallarta, working on her third album and readying for a 50-date North American tour beginning next month. But her admiration for Ronstadt has led to "Hasten Down the Wind," a Ronstadt retrospective she developed with her co-writer/producer Rob Hill. Her performance of "Hasten Down the Wind" on April 4 in the Red Room Cabaret is a one-night only preview of the show.
Brittany Kingery is the one show NOT to miss! Quickly becoming a Red Room favorite, never before has Vallarta seen a talent like Brittany. With her sold out houses it's no wonder that this three time Horizon Tropic Rock award winner has taken Vallarta by storm, selling as many Award winning CDs as tickets. Her music is addicting and you will find yourself singing her songs long after the show has ended. "Brittany Kingery is truly a star." Brittany and her 6 piece band have a chemistry, and together they are a Puerto Vallarta hit you will enjoy for many years to come.
