Continuing this Month at Act II

Casa Valentina
Winner of Four Tony Nominations
April 13, 22, 25, 27, 29. May 2, 4 & 6 at 7:00 pm
Get Your Tickets NOW at act2pv.com.


Back in 1962, most men went to the Catskill Mountains to escape the summer heat, but others took the two-hour drive to escape something else entirely: being men. Nestled in the land of dirty dancing and borscht belt comedy sat an inconspicuous bungalow colony that catered to a very special clientele: heterosexual men whose favorite pastime was dressing and acting as women. It was paradise for these men - white-collar professionals with families - to spend their weekends discreetly and safely inhabiting their chosen female alter egos. But when faced with the opportunity to become an official organization, these 'self-made women' had to decide whether public recognition would help them gain a place in open society or spell their own personal disaster.

Infused with Director Harvey Fierstein's trademark wit, the entire cast is a delight! This moving, insightful and delightfully entertaining new work had four Tony nominations in 2014, and offers a glimpse into the lives of a group of unforgettable characters as they search for acceptance and happiness in their very own Garden of Eden. Directed by Allen McMullen, Casa Valentina stars Tom Bernes, Nathan Frye, Danny Mininni, Bert Ramirez, Dwayne Carrier, Thomas Carroll, Cherry DeLorenzo, Maria Rose and Dr. Ken Shanoff.

Last Chance to See Some of the Winter Season's Sell-Out Shows

"Come Together" - A Celebration of The Beatles
Featuring the Stars of Act II
One More Show!
Friday, April 14 at 7:00 pm

Featuring Rhonda Padmos and Don Pope with their live band, and singers Joan Huston, Juan Pablo Hernandez, Paul Fracassi, Jane Mortifee, Bob Tansen, Elvis Martinez and many more, this show is "gleeful, delightful, hilarious, and insightful!" Come Together features three important periods of the Fab Four's evolution: "Beatlemania," Drugs and Krishna Consciousness.

"This is the SURPRISE Show of the Whole Season. No one knew this was coming and it hit us in the Face. Fantastic and So much Fun. No more words. Just Fantastic... This show will go far beyond your expectations and OMG I was so impressed with the Opening Night." - David Wilhoit

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

Hedda Lettuce
Closing Night - Friday, April 14th at 9:30 pm

Hedda Lettuce, six-time Drag Queen of the Year Award-winner (HX magazine) and the legendary "green goddess" of drag, will glamorize another winter in Puerto Vallarta as she dishes out a tossed salad of improvisational comedy, sultry songs, and dazzling gowns. And it's entirely fat-free! She tosses out a night of storytelling, ribald stand-up comedy, and live (not lip-synched) singing. Her show includes her nationally-acclaimed original comedic music that is peppered with parodies of old time favorites and startling satire. Expect a night of side-splitting laughter from Hedda Lettuce, one of NYC's premiere drag queens.

"I urge you to alter your calendar and grab your best friends, get tickets and see this person whose comic mind will impress you... is it Robin Williams back from outer-space? The show will make you laugh so hard - I am still chuckling over some of the trains of thoughts which burst from Hedda Lettuce's head. Genius! Trust me: go!" - Gary Beck

"Hasten Down The Wind"
Starring Brittany Kingery
A tribute to the timeless music of living legend, Linda Ronstadt.
Closing Night Birthday Bash - Friday, April 14 at 7:30 pm


Brittany Kingery, originally from Washington State, but now living in the Vallarta, is presenting her sensational new show called "Hasten Down The Wind," a tribute to the timeless music of living legend, Linda Ronstadt, winner of 11 Grammy Awards, three American Music Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards, an Emmy Award, an ALMA Award and numerous United States and internationally certified Gold, Platinum and Multi-Platinum Albums. Do you remember these songs: Blue Bayou, You're No Good, Poor, Poor, Pitiful Me, When Will I Be Loved, Different Drum, Heatwave, It's So Easy, Desperado? Brittany skillfully performs all of these - and many more! Brittany has always had a special affinity for Linda Ronstadt, and her stunning likeness, clear voice and creative band, is the perfect combination to take on such an amazing performer!

"Queens Against Humanity" - A Drag Show for 'Horrible People'
Starring Sutton Lee Seymour
Closing Night - Saturday, April 15 at 9:30 pm

Don't miss your last chance to see Sutton Lee Seymour this season in "Queens Against Humanity," an interactive comedy show based on the hilarious game, Cards Against Humanity! Unlike most of the party games you've played before, Cards Against Humanity is as "despicable and awkward as you and your friends." The game is simple. Each round, one player asks a question from a Black Card, and everyone else answers with their funniest White Card. Come see why "the Queen of Broadway" became an overnight sensation in Puerto Vallarta last season with her show, "The Way Off Broad." We know you are going to LOVE what she has in store for us as she closes out this season with the incredible energy, vocal prowess, and perfect comedic timing that catapulted her into a headline act at Act II Stages.
