Hedda Lettuce, six-time Drag Queen of the Year Award-winner (HX magazine) and the legendary "green goddess" of drag, is glamorizing another winter in Puerto Vallarta as she dishes out a tossed salad of improvisational comedy, sultry songs, and dazzling gowns. And it's entirely fat-free! She tosses out a night of storytelling, ribald stand-up comedy, and live (not lip-synched) singing. Her show includes her nationally-acclaimed original comedic music peppered with parodies of old-time favorites and startling satire. Expect a night of side-splitting laughter from Hedda Lettuce, one of New York City's premier drag queens.
16-time Emmy-Winner, Eileen Matthews
Tuesday, Thursday & Saturdays at 7:00 pm
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.

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!
