Two Upcoming Winter Season Red Room Shows Make Act II Debuts
Diana Villamonte, Panamanian reality star, and musical duo 'UsTwo' hit the Red Room stage with Winter season preview shows.

"UsTwo" Makes Stage Debut in The Red Room
Saturday, July 22 at 7:30 pm


Act II is excited to welcome the amazing musical duo, "UsTwo," for the first time on its stage on Saturday, July 22, at 7:30 pm. Although new to Act II, UsTwo is definitely NOT new to the music scene. The beautiful Noemi Plasencia is from Guadalajara and studied at the Conservatory of Music at the University of Guadalajara. Daniel Celis is from Cordoba, Veracruz and studied at the Conservatory of Music in Querétaro. Both Noemi and Daniel sang in various bands around Mexico, but in 2012, Noemi and Daniel discovered each other and melded their incredible talents, creating an amazing chemistry together!

UsTwo has performed in many parts of Mexico, as well as the United States and Canada. They specialize in singing re-mastered arrangements of classic favorites and are much in demand at many of the major hotels in Puerto Vallarta, including the Sheraton, Garza Blanca, Vidanta, the Marriott and the Four Seasons, among others.

People are raving about the absolute beauty of their sound.

Lynn from Calgary wrote, "As soon as Danny and Noemi started singing, mouths opened, jaws dropped, and people said, 'Wow!'"

Another fan said, "This show is sure to be a hit! Noemi and Daniel are a class act and have it all... they are both beautiful, talented, classy, and nice people, as well!"

"Motown and Beyond"
Starring Diana Villamonte
July 27, August 1 & 5 at 7:30 pm


We are so excited to present the amazing Diana Villamonte in the debut of her Red Room Cabaret Show for the winter season, "Motown and Beyond!" Her show is a musical tribute (in English) to the great ladies of Motown and Beyond, such as Diana Ross, Shirley Bassey, Whitney Houston, Anita Ward, Etta James, Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin and Donna Summer.

Diana has quite an extensive background as an artist. She sang her first solo at her aunt's wedding at the age of 3, and since then has studied music, ballet, modeling and theater. She entered her first singing competition at age 10 and also performed in several local plays.

In 2014, she won the Karaoke World Championship in Stockholm, Sweden, and was asked to participate in the Tokyo International Karaoke competition for the following two years. She sang as the "guest artist" at the competition in Singapore in 2015. Then, as a result of the notoriety she received after her karaoke successes, she was asked to star in a reality show on television in Central America. She now has a huge television following!

Diana was also a member of a band called "The Players" for two years at the Hard Rock Hotel Panama, has produced two singles, "Te Amo" and "Running," (available on YouTube), and just finished a stint as one of the main singers at the fabulous Rhythms of the Night.

Diana gained our attention as she competed in the Voice of Vallarta 2017. Each week, she demonstrated her amazing versatility as a musician, wowing the audience and judges with her singing ability and incredible stage presence, and she received perfect 10's almost every week.

This young lady is one of the most talented people we have ever met, and she is destined to be a huge star! We are beyond excited that Diana has agreed to perform here at Act II, so we invite you to come to the opening night of Motown and Beyond on Thursday, July 27 at 7:30 pm.

Tickets to all shows can be purchased online at actiientertainment.com, or at the box office, which opens at 4 pm on show days. Don't have a credit card? Now you can buy your tickets through Cupocity at OXXO!

The Act II Entertainment STAGES complex is located on the corner of Insurgentes and Basilio Badillo on the South side of Puerto Vallarta. For more information, call (322) 222-1512, or follow Act II on Facebook. Click HERE to see what else is playing at Act II STAGES.
