November at Act II STAGES Exceeds All Expectations

Act II STAGES is located in the Zona Romantica, on the corner of Insurgentes and Basilio Badillo, just a short stroll from the beach on the South side of Puerto Vallarta. For more info, call (322) 222-1512.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - If you haven't been to Act II STAGES recently, you don't know what you've been missing! With sold-out performances and glowing reviews of this season's all-new shows and returning favorites, Act II has kept Puerto Vallarta audiences entertained all month long - and there's more to come!

"The Rocky Horror Show"
a Musical Comedy Fiction Horror Stage Play
Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 7:00 pm


Season 5 kicked off with Act II's newest stage play, The Rocky Horror Show, which could very well be the season's biggest hit. This blockbuster musical comedy that pays humorous tribute to science fiction and horror B movies tells the story of Brad Majors and Janet Weiss, a straight-laced, newly-engaged couple, who have a flat tire while lost in the woods in a heavy rainstorm.

They stumble upon the castle of Dr. Frank-n-Furter, a mad transvestite scientist [Gabe Arciniega] who is hosting a party to celebrate the unveiling of his newest creation, Rocky Horror [Elvis Morales], a man-made muscular creation willing to give anyone total pleasure. Soon the innocent couple is faced with a creepy butler and a rocking biker, among other non-earthly beings played by an all-star case that includes: Kami Desilets, Maria Rose, MaryJo Nelson, Jose Ramon Martinez, Ocean Olsen, Camila Quinto, Dr. Ken Shanoff, Eli Estrada and Tom Bernes, among others. This ultra-campy cult classic is more than just a show, it is a "must see" event. If you still haven't experienced this hilarious, gripping and haunting stage play, click HERE to get your tickets TODAY!

OPENING THIS WEEK AT ACT II STAGES

"The Linda Ronstadt Show"
featuring Brittany Kingery and her Live Band!
Opening Night - Friday, November 24 at 7:30 pm
Shows Every Friday at 7:30 pm in The Red Room


Do you remember these songs? Blue Bayou... You're No Good... Poor, Poor, Pitiful Me... Just One Look... Alison... Heatwave... It's So Easy... Desperado? Every Friday evening, starting November 24, the lovely Brittany Kingery will present her sensational "Linda Ronstadt Show," a tribute to the timeless music of living legend, Linda Ronstadt. Linda Ronstadt is the 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. Brittany has always had a special affinity for Linda Ronstadt, and her stunning likeness, as well as her beautiful, clear voice, refreshing smile and live band, is the perfect combination to take on such an amazing performer.

Originally from Washington State, but now living in Puerto Vallarta, Brittany is in her third season at Act II as a headline performer. This amazing vocalist was born into a music-loving family that knew the importance of education. Brittany finished her studies, got a job and started on her professional career. However, her desire to sing and make music was growing stronger by the day. Eventually she made the heartfelt decision to leave the security of her job and follow her dream. Obviously, this was a very good decision for her (and for us). Brittany is now a four-time Troprock Music Award winner, winning Female Vocalist of the Year in 2015 and 2016, Song of the Year in 2015 and the Horizon Award in 2015. She has released two CDs of her original tropical-inspired music, Edge of the Ocean (2013) and Dream in Blue (2014), and she spends the summer months performing in the United States and Canada. Her opening night of "Hasten Down The Wind" became the biggest selling show in the history of The Red Room and was moved to the Main Stage, which also sold out. Both of Brittany's shows continue to be among the main attractions of the Puerto Vallarta entertainment scene. Act II is glad to have Brittany "back home" and performing on The Red Room stage!

It's a Wonderful Life is one of the most well-known and heart-warming Christmas stories ever! It is the story of an angel that is sent from Heaven to help a desperately frustrated businessman by showing him what life would have been like if he had never existed. Act II will bring this beloved American holiday classic back to life as a live 1940s radio broadcast! Its original twist, clever use of props, entertaining voices and a love story that you want to see over and over again, creates a fresh and inventive way of reconnecting with this classic story of love and redemption.

"Martha Mia," Starring Martha D’Arthur
November 24 & 26 at 9:30 pm

For the first time on its stage, Act II is thrilled to welcome the Award-Winning, International Drag Idol, Martha D’Arthur! 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! The glamorous Martha will delight you with her powerhouse vocals, and she has never done the same show twice!


Diana Villamonte, "Motown and Beyond"
A Musical Tribute to the Great Ladies of Motown and Beyond
Saturdays at 7:30 pm in The Red Room

The amazing Diana Villamonte wowed the audience at the Saturday, November 11th debut of her highly-anticipated Red Room Cabaret Show for the winter season, "Motown and Beyond!" Belting out a musical tribute 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, this young lady is one of the most talented people that has ever crossed The Red Room stage! After a sold-out preview of her show this past summer, she was described as "powerful, charming, beautiful, stunning, polished, mesmerizing and stunning." She blew the audience away again with her huge vocals and passionate interpretations. Diana is a reality TV star/musician in Central America, and she already has a huge fan base here in Puerto Vallarta. We are beyond excited that she has agreed to perform here at Act II, so we invite you to get your tickets now for one of her shows. We promise you, you will never forget her!

UsTwo: "New Voices, Old Beats"

UsTwo's Opening Night will be a special evening of fun, gorgeousness, and talent.

Paul Fracassi: "Walk Like a Man"
Performing every Wednesday at 7:30 pm

This "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! He has become an international star and is much in demand in Mexico, Canada, the U.S., and Europe. 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 for his show, including Dawn, Rag Doll, Can't Take My Eyes Off of You, and Walk Like a Man. Paul handles the Frankie Valli songs as if Frankie Valli himself was on stage singing them in his early years on The Ed Sullivan Show!
