featuring 16-time Emmy-Winner, Eileen Matthews
OPENING NIGHT - February 24, Party 6:00 pm/Show 7:00 pm
Continuing Shows: Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday through March 31

Plaza Suite is a hilarious comedy, composed of three acts, all set in Room #719 at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. In the first act, "Visitor from Mamaroneck," a middle-aged married couple tries to rekindle their dying spark. In "Visitor from Hollywood," a film producer invites his childhood sweetheart to a hotel for sex. In "Visitor from Forest Hills," a bride has locked herself in the bathroom on her wedding day, as her parents desperately try to get her out. Plaza Suites is produced by the elite PV production team, NuName Productions, and directed by Edoardo Rocha. It stars Michel Gibney and Eileen Matthews. Overflowing with gags, jokes, one-liners and laughable human frailties, Plaza Suites is a sparkling gem.

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"
Musical Revue of Rodgers & Hammerstein
Extended by Popular Demand!
Mondays at 7:00 pm

More so than any composer and lyricist who have written for the stage, the songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein have become an integral part of our everyday lives. We sing them in the shower, we dance to them in ballrooms, we hear them on the radio and in clubs and, yes, in elevators and supermarkets too. We still thrill to see them on the live stage in their respective shows, and we teach their songs to our children. Directed by Alfonso López, Some Enchanted Evening offers a stunning collection of Rodgers & Hammerstein compositions and places four of PV's best singers on The Main Stage: Alfonso López a classically trained musician/singer with a Masters in music; Hal Bonta and Kami Desilets, two veteran stage actors with hundreds of Broadway Musicals on their resumes; and newly added Marsh Ward Ross stepping into the Soprano roll that was made for her. This magical show will offer you a glorious parade of unforgettable hits from the best musicals of all time. Click Here for more details.

"BIG AND LOUD"
Starring drag diva, Mama Tits
Every Monday - 9:30 pm & Wednesday at 5:00 pm


In this all-new drag show, "BIG & LOUD," Mama Tits is guaranteed to take you on a wild journey, complete with incredible live singing, hilarious stories, and side-splitting comedy! This year, Mama Tits has turned things up a notch, too, by adding live accompaniment! Mama Tits is one of the top drag divas of Puerto Vallarta and Seattle, with sold-out shows almost every night. Known for her buttery smooth voice and soulful blues sound, her shows have become a notorious "destination," forever changing drag cabaret entertainment!

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!

"Motown and Beyond"
Starring Diana Villamonte
A Musical Tribute to the Great Ladies of Motown and Beyond
Every Thursday at 5:00 pm

The amazingly talented Diana Villamonte presents "Motown and Beyond!" 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 our 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 with her huge vocals and passionate interpretations, grabbed the audience and never let go.

Act II is very excited about its 2017-2018 season! Featuring over 45 different shows, many of Vallarta's favorites have already returned to our stages, but there are some hot, new surprises in store, too! Act II is also grateful to Georgia Darehshori, of Casa Karma Boutique Hotel, for always providing the best accommodations for our guest-starring performers, such as Lorena Peril, Steve Grand and Donny Most from TV's "Happy Days."
