Sweet Like Candy - A Jazz & Blues tribute featuring Mama Tits
OPENING NIGHT Party: Thursday, November 10 - 8:30 pm

Mama Tits definitely left a great impression in Vallarta after a very successful run last year with her fabulous show, Mayhem with Mama! We are very excited that she is returning to Puerto Vallarta this year with her solo show, "Sweet Like Candy." An amazing performer, Mama Tits always "thinks out of the box" to come up with outrageous new twists to tell her favorite stories! Each section of her show is a whirlwind of song and dance and quick-change magic... guaranteed to make you laugh uncontrollably and beg for more! Mama Tits has created this tribute to Jazz and Blues exclusively for the Puerto Vallarta audience!

AVENUE Q, 3-time Tony award winning American musical, opens on The Main Stage

Avenue Q - A 3-time Tony Award winner!
November 12, 16, 17, 19, 23, 24, 26, 30 at 7:00 pm
December 1, 3, 7, 8, 10, 14, 21, 22 at 7:00 pm
OPENING NIGHT PARTY: Saturday, November 12 at 6:00 pm

Avenue Q is a delightful, laugh-out-loud American musical that was performed on Broadway from 2003 to 2009. Audiences everywhere have been captivated by its fresh and funny story, and it won the prestigious 2004 "Triple Crown" for Tony Awards: Best Music, Best Score and Best Book! The story of Avenue Q takes place in New York City and the street is Avenue Q, the only address you can afford when you're fresh out of college, out of a job, or just trying to find your purpose in life. It is a coming-of-age parable that satirizes the issues and anxieties of entering adulthood. Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score (not to mention the use of full-size puppets that are animated by unconcealed human puppeteers), Avenue Q is a truly unique show that has quickly become a favorite of audiences everywhere! Although the show addresses humorous adult issues (and is not recommended for children), it is very similar to a beloved children's show; a place where puppets are friends. It is directed by Act II's Musical Director, Alfonso Lopez, and features a wonderful, international cast. Simply put, this show is perfect for those of us who may be wondering how the hell we got to this point in our lives and constantly questioning what our purpose is. But for now, you can just sit back, enjoy, belly-laugh, and rejoice at the marvel of this modern-day musical!

Starting Here, Starting Now is a Musical Revue by David Shire and Richard Maltby Jr. David Shire has composed film scores, such as All the President's Men and Farewell My Lovely. Richard Maltby Jr. wrote the lyrics to Miss Saigon, and together with David, they have written the musicals, Baby, Closer than Ever, and Big. From tender ballads to hysterical husband-hunting laments, from wry comments on trendy marriages to ecstatic shouting-from-the-rooftop celebration, Starting Here, Starting Now is the perfect Vallarta musical! It has an appealing freshness that has made it a perennial favorite throughout the world. The Puerto Vallarta cast stars Elizabeth Wiggins, Barbara Renee and Hal Bonta, all Puerto Vallarta super-stars. It is directed by Allen McMullen, with musical direction by PVGMC founder Bob Bruneau, and produced by Wiggins/Bonta Productions, in collaboration with Act II Entertainment Productions. The show includes hit songs such as What About Today? a hit song covered by Barbara Streisand. Other notables are Today Is the First Day of the Rest of My Life, Autumn and I Don't Remember Christmas.

Blame it All on Mexico with 4-Time TropRock Award Winner, Brittany Kingery

Blame it All on Mexico - Starring Brittany Kingery
November 14 - 6:30 pm
Performing Every Monday at 7:30 pm

Act II Entertainment is excited to welcome back the one-and-only, chart-topping, award-winning, Darling of Vallarta, Brittany Kingery, this season! Every Monday evening, Brittany will bring her sweet, soaring voice and all-live band, appearing as a headline singer on the Red Room Stage. Originally from Washington State, now residing in Vallarta, her critically-acclaimed original and cover songs have been inspired by her experiences and life here in Mexico. She has also earned quite a reputation with huge accolades from her many fans of Troprock and Acoustic music. Brittany has won three 2015 Troprock Music Awards, including 'Female Vocalist of the Year', 'Song of the Year' and 'Horizon Award' for both 2015 and 2016. She has released two CDs of her original tropically-inspired music, Edge of the Ocean (2013) and Dream in Blue (2014). Brittany has been touring with her band all around the United States for the past three summers, so we are very proud and excited to welcome her "home!"

Sonico, starring Alfredo Mendoza and Cristina Mariscal, returns to The Red Room

Sonico - Starring Alfredo Mendoza & Cristina Mariscal
OPENING NIGHT - November 15 - 7:00 pm
November 15, 22, 29 at 7:00 pm
December 6, 13 - 7:00 pm

Act II Entertainment is excited to welcome back to the Red Room Sonico, starring Vallarta locals and superstars, Alfredo Mendoza and Cristina Mariscal! Last season, Puerto Vallarta was knocked to its feet when a local band, well known from their performances in many local high-end hotels and resorts, hit the Red Room stage with a blast of energy and talent! With two sold-out shows, the word on everyone's tongue was to "Bring Them Back!" Sonico performs chart-topping covers like Stand by Me, Careless Whisper, Uptown Funk, and an array of other great songs, from Elvis Presley to Justin Timberlake! Then, in order to wrap it all up, they throw some great Latin sounds into the mix! We are excited to be able to showcase such great local talent right here in The Red Room!

Last season's sell-out hit, Paul Fracassi's Walk Like a Man, returns to The Red Room

Walk Like a Man - Starring Paul Fracassi
OPENING NIGHT - November 16 at 7:30 pm
Every Wednesday at 7:30 pm

Paul Fracassi's 'Walk Like a Man' is the number-one selling show in Puerto Vallarta! In fact, last year, Paul sold out 24 of his 25 shows (damn Super Bowl!) We are so excited to announce that Walk Like a Man returns to The Red Room as a headline act for the 2016-2017 season! Paul Fracassi, the "Jersey Kid" from Toronto, Canada, managed to create a big fuss up in Canada as a finalist on Canadian Idol. Shortly thereafter, he created a "big fuss" in Puerto Vallarta, too, as we fell in love with this wonderful, new singing sensation. Paul's vocal range has been compared to the great crooners of the American songbook and especially the high vocal range of Frankie Valli. It is no wonder that this artist chose to present the music of The Four Seasons for his show, including Dawn, Rag Doll, Can't Take My Eyes Off of You and Walk Like a Man. He also handles the Frankie Valli songs as if Frankie Valli himself was on stage singing them in his early years on the Ed Sullivan show!

Canadian Sensation, Jeffery Straker

Jeffery Straker
Thursday, November 17 - 6:30 pm
November 17, 19, 24, 26 at 7:30 pm
November 18, 25 at 9:30 pm

We are very excited to welcome Jeffery Straker, singer-songwriter-pianist, from Saskatchewan, Canada, to Act II! As he sings along to his beautiful piano playing, Jeffery weaves stories between his songs, drawing the audience into an unforgettable, intimate experience. Jeffery's distinctive voice, with its surprising range and signature high notes, blends folk and pop, sounding like a mixture of Elton John, Sarah Slean & Billy Joel (with a dash of Harry Chapin). His tour stops range from intimate house concerts to club and theater shows and include recent sold-out concerts with Canadian symphony orchestras in Saskatoon, Regina and Sudbury. The Toronto Star gave Straker "4 out of 4 stars," and the review following his orchestral debut read: "Straker was simply spectacular... clearly one of the province's best cultural exports."

Sounds of Sirens, Brittany Kingery & Stolie celebrate Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel

Sounds of Sirens - Featuring Brittany Kingery and Stolie
Friday, November 18 - 6:30 pm
Every Friday at 7:30 pm

New "old friends," Brittany Kingery and Stolie, unite their silky vocals in an acoustic show paying tribute to the most successful folk-rock duo of the 1960's, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. These two young chicks will showcase an eclectic mix of memorable chart-toppers, tunes moving through folk, pop, doo-wop, Latin rhythms and gospel flavors, and highlighting those signature "choir boy" harmonies. Stolie will guitar-strum as Paul Simon and Brittany will keep the beat and hit those sweet-spots as Art Garfunkel. Come sing along and enjoy the Sounds of Sirens playing some of the best songs ever written! We're sure you'll be "Feelin' Groovy!"
