Act II Entertainment Announces 2017-18 Season Shows

September 6, 2017

World-acclaimed "beautyshop" quartet, The Kinsey Sicks, returns to Act II in November with an updated, "ribald, ridiculous, raunchy, decidedly R-rated romp" of political comedy in their own imitable style!

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Act II wraps up their Summer of Entertainment this week with food, fun and song tonight at the closing of Bob's Karaoke Party, the last show of the 'Spotlight on Vallarta' series, "Who's That Girl?" starring Kami Desilets on Thursday, and the fabulous Christine Deaver in a special performance of "Hot and Spanx-Less" on Friday.

But, as promised, Act II has released the full line-up of shows for the 2017-2018 season, which promises to be the best season of entertainment they have ever created with lots of your favorites returning, as well as some fabulous new shows!

There's a complete listing of all of the 2017-2018 season shows at act2pv.com, but here's a look at some of the amazing entertainment that Act II STAGES has in store for Puerto Vallarta audiences in November.

"Rocky Horror Show"
Opening Night - Tuesday, October 31 at 7:00 pm
Opening Night Party and Costume Contest in Encore at 6:00 pm
Additional Show Dates (Main Stage - 7:00 pm)
November 2, 4, 7, 9, 11, 14, 16, 18, 21, 23, 25, 28, 30
December 2, 5, 7, 9, 12, 14, 16, 19, 21, 23, 26, 28, 30


The Rocky Horror Show is an extremely popular, blockbuster musical comedy that pays humorous tribute to the science fiction and horror B movies of the 1940's through the 1970's. It tells the story of Brad Majors and Janet Weiss, a straight-laced, newly engaged couple, that have a breakdown and get caught in a terrible storm. They stumble upon the castle of Dr. Frank-n-Furter, a mad transvestite scientist, who is having a party to celebrate the unveiling of his newest creation, Rocky Horror, a man-made Adonis that will give absolute pleasure! Rocky Horror is a powerful musical that sparked a cult movement. It is the perfect show for Puerto Vallarta because it brings together people from all walks of life, exploring freedom from normal heterosexuality and embracing androgyny and queer sexual awakenings.

UsTwo: "New Voices, Old Beats"
Featuring Noemi Plasencia and Daniel Celis
Red Room Opening Night and 5th Season Celebration (Plus Danny's Birthday party)
Thursday, November 2 - Party at 6:00 pm / Show at 7:30

Over the Summer, UsTwo performed to a packed house in Act II's sensational hit series, "Spotlight on Vallarta." By the time they had done their second show, rumor had gotten around that this show was NOT to be missed! This smashing duo with the soft, sexy, easy beat and harmonious vocals certainly proved that rumor to be true! The audience went wild and fell in love with Noemi and Daniel! This magical duo soon became the talk of the town, and the consensus was that they MUST bring their show back for the winter season. You asked for it, you got it... catch them every Thursday at 7:30 pm in The Red Room.

"Things You Shouldn't Say"
A Political Satire featuring The Kinsey Sicks
Opening Night - Friday, November 3 at 7:00 pm
Additional Show Dates (Main Stage - 7:00 pm)
November 6, 8, 10, 13, 15, 17, 20

We are so thrilled to welcome back (for their third year), the world-acclaimed Dragapella "Beautyshop" Quartet, The Kinsey Sicks! (If you love Donald Trump, you'll hate this show!) This deliciously R-rated group will present an updated, "ribald, ridiculous, raunchy romp" of current political comedy in its own inimitable style! The show is a cornucopia of bawdy, riotous, good fun, paired with emotional gut punches in equal measure. Their jokes are as tight as their harmonies, and the parody songs that were written and performed by the group are as clever as they are funny!

Canadian Idol Finalist Paul Fracassi Returns to Act II for Fourth Consecutive Year

"Legends of the 50's and 60's"
Opening Night - Sunday, November 5 - Party at 6:30 / Show at 7:30
Shows Every Sunday at 7:30 pm in the Red Room

After a record-breaking season last winter, Paul Fracassi, one of Act II's most popular and talented artists, returns to Act II for his fourth consecutive year. His very popular shows, Legends, Walk Like a Man and 20th Century Crooners, sold more tickets than any other performer in Vallarta history! Legends of the 50's and 60's is a stunning tribute to some of his favorite singers, including Elvis, Frankie Valli, Frank Sinatra, Davy Jones, Buddy Holly, Bobby Darin, and a special tribute to Roy Orbison.


"Walk Like A Man"
featuring Paul Fracassi
Opening Night - Wednesday, November 8 - Party at 6:30 / Show at 7:30
Additional shows every Wednesday night at 7:30 in The Red Room

The "Jersey Kid" from Toronto, Canada, managed to create a big fuss up in Canada as a finalist in 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, including Dawn, Rag Doll and Can't Take My Eyes Off of You, and of course, Walk Like a Man. In Walk Like a Man, Paul handles the songs as if Frankie Valli himself was on stage singing them in his early years on the Ed Sullivan Show!

The consummate performer, Paul bounds onto the stage and effortlessly reaches soaring high notes that send chills and thrills throughout his audience. He has added new excitement to his shows with backup singers and Vegas-style costumes that truly complement his engaging delivery. Paul's shows sell out quickly, so it's a good idea to get your tickets now!

Acoustic Guitarist and Singer, CÚsar Medina
featuring the timeless music of Eric Clapton
Opening Night - Friday, November 10 - Opening Night Party at 6:30 / Show at 7:30
Additional Shows - November 17 at 7:30, then every Friday at 5:00 in The Red Room

Local musical sensation, CÚsar Medina, takes on one of the world's finest guitarists in this Eric Clapton show and he KILLS it with his incredible guitar-playing! He identifies with Clapton's philosophies in music, and believes that one must develop and perform ANY song in your own style. Clapton's haunting melodies, vintage 70's feeling, and excellent guitar work drip with feeling and emotion. So, if you love the feeling of "I Shot the Sheriff," "Tears in Heaven," "Sunshine of Your Love," and other Clapton songs, this is the perfect blend... songs you love are improvised with the fresh sound of classic blues.

"Motown & Beyond"
starring Reality TV Sensation, Diana Villamonte
Opening Night - Saturday, November 11 - Party at 6:30 / Show at 7:30

Diana Villamonte, in the summer debut of her show, "Motown and Beyond!" was a smashing success! Her show, 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 was thoroughly enjoyed by a wild and crazy audience, and Diana wowed the audience with her incredible voice and personality! We are beyond excited that Diana has agreed to perform her show every Saturday night at 7:30 in The Red Room.

Martha won the Drag Idol UK competition in 2013, and she hosted and performed at the opening and closing shows for the inaugural Austin International Drag Festival in 2015. Her brand of "nice queen" has proved to be quite popular with audiences and she has become a permanent fixture in the drag circuit around the United Kingdom. Martha's show, "Martha Mia," will include some of her favorite songs from stage, screen and music charts, but one of the highlights of her show is the popular Juke Box Drag, where the audience gets to choose songs from her wide-ranging repertoire (over 150 songs) of power ballads and cabaret classics.
