Xanadu follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mount Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980. She is on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ROLLER DISCO! (Hey, it's 1980!) But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds. Xanadu is a moving, electrifying tale of endless fun that will keep you in stitches, while the original, legendary, chart-topping tunes will lift your spirits. You will want to keep the music in your head and Xanadu in your heart... forever.
Christine Deaver "Is Like Totally 80's"

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 "The Most Loved!" Rarely does a performer come along that captures the hearts of 100% of their audience, but Christine is the exception! She is sly, devious, clever and wildly funny, but then she glides into a strong heart-felt luscious ballad and shows us another side of her capabilities. This year, Christine brings an all new show featuring all of our favorite 80's songs.

Paul Fracassi, one of Act II's most popular and talented headliner artists, has created a brand-new show called "Stayin' Alive," a tribute to one of his favorite 70's groups, The Bee Gees! Paul is the consummate performer! This "Jersey Kid" from Toronto, Canada, bounds onto the stage and effortlessly reaches soaring high notes that send chills and thrills throughout his audience. Paul managed to create a big fuss 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! His signature high notes have helped him create an amazing likeness to music of The Bee Gee's. You will definitely find yourself singing along and swaying in your seat to the sounds of The Bee Gee's beloved music.

Although both are acclaimed vocal impressionists in their own right, Chi Chi and Jo Anna approach the celebrities they impersonate from different perspectives. Where Jo Anna is the more zany, crazy, campy one, Chi Chi is the more glamorous, legendary diva. Together, they are a force to be reckoned with... a perfect storm.
"Some Enchanted Evening"

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!
