A neurotic composer and a wacky lyricist form a partnership and a tempestuous romance, expressing their thoughts in song, both in their own solos and in songs where each is backed by two "alter egos."

Continuing This Month at Act II

"Laurel Canyon" Returns!
Starring Renee Armand and Paul Aleman
Limited run; only 5 shows!
March 9, 11, 14, 16, 18 at 7:30 pm

Renee and Paul presented "Rocky Mountain High" (The Definitive Tribute to John Denver) last season to sold-out audiences here at Act II! Laurel Canyon. The crossroads between Beverly Hills and Hollywood. The "golden" place where crazy young musicians in their 20's, like Carole King, Linda Ronstadt, Judy Collins, the Beatles, Mamma Cass, the Eagles, David Crosby, Steven Sills, Graham Nash, Frank Zappa, Joni Mitchell and Renee Armand lived... and loved... and wrote music... that affected a lifetime. Renee Armand and Paul Aleman present "Laurel Canyon," the untold story. Performed brilliantly in songs and stories, Renee will share things that she has never talked about... until now. Some of it will shock you, some will make you cry, some will make you laugh, but most of all, you'll be glad you came!

"Laurel Canyon! Words can NOT do justice, but I will do my best! Grand Slam!"
5 of 5 Stars - TripAdvisor
"I have been privileged to attend many world class theatre and musical events all over the world! It is a passion of mine... both as a spectator and performer."

Our favorite spot here in Puerto Vallarta is Act II Stages. Always thrilling. However, THIS show (Laurel Canyon) took it to a whole new level.

When managing partner Danny Mininni was promoting this show, he called it a "religious experience," and I thought finally he had probably gone a little "off the rail" - BUT Danny, I was SO WRONG!

Avenue Q, the longest running show in PV, extends again for four more shows!
Thursday, March 9 at 7:00 pm
Thursday, March 16 at 7:00 pm
Thursday, March 23 at 7:00 pm

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!

"Avenue Q - don't miss this!"
5 of 5 stars - TripAdvisor
Just saw the performance and all I can say is WOW! Beyond my expectations. When the rights to Avenue Q became available in Mexico this year, before they did in the States, Act II picked up on it. The talent is truly amazing and the venue is easy to get to and fun. Do not miss this!

"Play night"
5 of 5 stars - TripAdvisor
We saw Avenue Q at Act II Stages in Puerto Vallarta and it was fantastic. The seats were great, the production was wonderful. We had seen Ave. Q in the states, and this production cost considerably less and was every bit as good.

"Come Together"
5 of 5 stars - TripAdvisor
"Imagine all of your most talented, slightly crazy friends getting together in the community hall to celebrate the music and life of the Beatles. That gives you an idea of the exuberance and joy that Rhonda Padmos and Don Pope bring to their new musical creation... The quiz show is priceless. Combined with obscure facts about The Beatles, the four nutty contestants and the charming quiz master had the audience in stitches. Elviz, your Mariachi character had me in stitches. The prize is quite delicious! ...Kudos to all for pulling it off on a fabulous opening night." 5 of 5 stars - TripAdvisor user Honey_Crawford.

"Awesome and informative funny show. Great characters, lots of laughs, fantastic musical experience. A must see while in Vallarta!" - Helen Paris
