"The Gabest Show on Earth!"
Starring Gabe Arcineaga
Final Show - August 10 at 7:30 pm

Gabe, the handsome and talented man that many will remember from his incredible singing performances in the Encore Room last season, as well as the lead role in 39 Steps, totally lived up to his promise of an incredible show! This theatrical triumph, which was produced, directed and co-written by the fabulous Alfonso Lopez, was filled with beautiful music, poignant stories, incredible comedy, exuberant dancing and lots of GOSSIP about his days of touring with Charo! People were riveted to their seats and could not believe the amount of talent this man has! This show is one of the most talked about opening nights in recent history! In fact, immediately after the show, about half the audience purchased tickets for his next two shows! Gabe's final show is Thursday, August 10. Tickets are selling fast and are expected to sell out, so if you definitely plan on attending, we recommend that you get your tickets now at act2pv.com.

Starring Noemi Plasencia and Daniel Celis
Saturday, August 12 at 7:30 pm

The amazing musical duo, "UsTwo," took The Red Room stage for the first time on Saturday, July 22nd for a preview of their upcoming Winter season show. By the time they had done their second show on the 29th, rumor had gotten around that this musical duo was not to be missed, and Danny and Noemi certainly proved that rumor to be true. Glowing reviews of Us Two immediately began pouring in, like this one that local entertainment writer, Gary Beck, posted to his Puerto Vallarta Shows Facebook page, More of Beck's Best: Theater, Cabaret and More! If you missed the first two Winter preview shows, you have one more chance to see them this Summer: on Saturday, August 12th at 7:30 pm in The Red Room. Get your tickets now at act2pv.com.

Emperatriz Valles' "Libre" is a Huge Hit!
Thursdays, August 17 & 24 at 7:30 pm
"The show not to miss this summer!" - Gary Beck


Emperatriz made her fabulous debut in The Red Room on Thursday, July 6, to a very excited and welcoming audience, and she was rewarded with a standing ovation! Her second show on July 13th was equally as good, if not better! Venezuelan recording artist Emperatriz Valles is the winner of Voice of Vallarta 2017, and is also a member of the now-famous musical group, "Trinity," which is comprised of the winners of Voice of Vallarta for 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Emperatriz is a native of Ciudad Bolívar, Venezuela, where she had a very successful career as a recording artist. Last year, she and her family moved to Puerto Vallarta, and Emperatriz was excited to learn about The Voice of Vallarta competition. She was an impressive contestant with a rich, velvety tone and soulful performances that captivated audiences and made her the undeniable winner of the entire competition!

In her cabaret show, Emperatriz performed alongside her famous husband, Alejandro Alcalá, who accompanied her on the acoustic guitar. She performed many Latin songs, some of them originals, that she had recorded in Venezuela. Emperatriz thrilled the audience with her incredible vocals and we look forward to working with her again in the future! For more information or to buy tickets, please go to act2pv.com.

Coming to Act II Stages

"Who's That Girl?"
Starring Vallarta favorite, Kami Desilets
Thursday, August 31 at 7:30 pm • Sept. 2 at 7:30 pm • Sept. 7 at 7:30 pm

Many people will remember Vallarta Favorite, Kami Desilets, who swooped into Puerto Vallarta last year and WOWED Puerto Vallarta as "Kate Monster" in the hit musical, Avenue Q. During the Avenue Q run, she also played the lead in Act II's stage play, 39 Steps, and in the musical, They're Playing Our Song. While she was at it, she also entertained theater-goers, singing every week in the Encore Lounge! Well, Kami is back in town... for good! And now, Act II is excited to feature the fabulous Kami in its final Spotlight on Vallarta summer series cabaret show, "Who's That Girl?" In her cabaret show, Kami will change from "girl next door," to "rockabilly rebel," to "underground cabaret seductress," all in one brand new show! Her show also features live vocals and guest appearances from some of your favorite "Broadway leading ladies!" This show is sure to be a LOTS of fun and filled with energy! It is not to be missed! Tickets will soon be available at act2pv.com.

"Hot and Spanx-Less"
Starring Vallarta sensation, Christine Deaver!
"The #1 requested show to return from the 2016 season!"
Two Nights Only! - September 5th & 8th 7:30 pm


Rarely does a performer come along that captures the hearts of 100% of their audience, but Christine Deaver is the exception! If Puerto Vallarta had a yearly awards ceremony, Christine Deaver would win "Best Female Cabaret Show," and we would create a special award for her as "Most Beloved Performer!"

We are so delighted that Christine is making an unexpected trip to Puerto Vallarta in September... and Act II is "doubly-delighted" that she has agreed to do two shows while she is here! As a trained singer, dancer, actress and natural comedienne, Christine possesses the very rarest of the rare combination of talents. She is sly, devious, clever and wildly funny, but when she glides right into a strong, heart-felt, luscious ballad, you'll see another amazing side of this talented performer.

As a child, Christine was one of those "annoying kids" who always knew what she wanted to do. She started performing as a child, and continued through school, college and grad school. She then went thru the PATP (Professional Actor's Training Program) at the University of Washington, and moved to Los Angeles to start her professional career. A director that had directed her in many projects in Los Angeles started directing at Teatro ZinZanni, Seattle's beloved dinner theater/comedic cabaret, invited her to become a part of their show. Thirteen years later, Christine is still there and continues to delight audiences with over 15 original, daring, sensual and funny characters!

This outrageously talented woman is going to present "Hot and Spanx-less," which features songs from her last two seasons, as well as a preview of songs from her brand-new 80's show, which opens in the Red Room on December 26! Don't miss out on this unexpected opportunity to have an awesome night of music and comedy with the Puerto Vallarta's Favorite Showgirl!
