Vallarta Entertainment Season 'Marches On' at Act II

March 1, 2019
Puerto Vallarta's #1 musical, Little Shop of Horrors, has been extended by popular demand and is now playing at Act II on Mondays & Thursdays at 7:00 pm! Get your tickets TODAY at!

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Act II has worked very hard this year to bring the "best of the best" entertainment to Puerto Vallarta. As the #1 Entertainment Venue, with hundreds of sold-out shows, and 1000+ 5-star reviews on TripAdvisor and Google Review, Act II has become the "entertainment destination" for people vacationing in Puerto Vallarta.

Even as PV's "high" season winds down, Act II is still in "high" gear, with new shows still opening every month, and highly successful shows extended due to popular demand. PV's #1 musical, Little Shop of Horrors; I've Got Rhythm, the fabulous Gershwin musical revue; and the Broadway musical, Chicago, have all been extended through April!


Avenue Q, the most popular musical ever presented in Puerto Vallarta, returns in May, just in time for Pride Week! When Act II conducted a poll recently to find out what show its patrons would most like to see again, the #1 answer was Avenue Q! Well, you asked for it, and we listened. We're bringing our most popular musical EVER back to the Main Stage! The cast, including many of the original cast members, is already hard at work and is excited to be a part of this blockbuster musical once again. Avenue Q opens Tuesday, May 14, save this date!

• Diana Villamonte's "Motown & Beyond" CD Now Available! Act II is excited to announce that the long-awaited "Motown & Beyond" CD of Act II's superstar, Diana Villamonte, is now available! A project that has been a year in the making, this CD features music from Diana's "Motown & Beyond" show, as well as some of her personal favorite songs. Diana's shows have been the #1 attraction on the Puerto Vallarta entertainment scene for the past two years and she also made quite an impression in The Voice of Mexico competition, as the 1st runner-up! Think about it. In years to come, when Diana Valeria Villamonte is the next Whitney, you can say you bought her VERY FIRST CD. This talented little gal is on her way to stardom! Diana's CD is now available at and at the Act II Stages box office.

"Act II is the #1 Entertainment Venue in Banderas Bay!"

Act II is THE PLACE to go to see a show when you are in Puerto Vallarta! With 3-4 shows every night to choose from, there is something for everyone! All of our shows are in English. Our slate of shows starts at 5:00 pm, and we feature the best performers in the Banderas Bay! Many of our shows sell out, so check out the schedule below and don't miss out! Get your tickets today at!

These are the final Puerto Vallarta performances of Founding Member and chief writer and lyricist, Benjamin Schatz (Rachel), before he retires, so don't miss it! The Kinsey Sicks have garnered rave reviews all across America, and even the UK, just this past year.

"Riveting... hilarious... [The Kinsey Sicks] will push buttons you didn't know you had!" - Forbes Magazine

"Outrageous... witty... a band of such inventively diabolical brains." - The Washington Post

"Hilarious ... wonderfully smart." - The London Times

"Walk Like a Man" (Vallarta's #1 show)
Featuring Paul Fracassi, Canadian Idol Finalist
Opening Night: Friday, March 15 - 5:00 pm
March 15, 17, 18, 20, 22, 25, 27, 29 - 5:00 pm

Paul Fracassi, one of Act II's most popular and talented artists, returns to The Red Room for his fourth consecutive year, after a record-breaking season last year! His show, Walk Like a Man, is the #1 show in Puerto Vallarta. It has sold more tickets than any other show in Vallarta history!

Always the consummate performer, Paul bounds on stage with tons of energy and shimmies his away around the whole stage. He has a powerful, well-trained voice that reaches soaring high notes that send chills and thrills throughout his audience.

His incredible 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 this show, including Dawn, Rag Doll, Can't Take My Eyes Off of You, and Walk Like a Man.

Paul handles these songs as if Frankie Valli himself was on stage singing them in his early years on the Ed Sullivan Show!

This "Jersey Kid" from Toronto, Canada, managed to create a big fuss up in Canada as a finalist on 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 Fracassi has become an international star, and is much in demand in Mexico, Canada, the U.S., and Europe. Tickets sell out quickly, so get yours TODAY!

A Celebration of the Music of Gershwin - All the songs you never knew you knew
Produced by Act II Entertainment
Directed by Alfonso López
Every Tuesday - 7:00 pm

Summertime, I Got Rhythm, Nice Work If You Can Get It, S'Wonderful, Embraceable You, Someone to Watch Over Me, and many more! George Gershwin (1898-1937) was one of America's most influential music composers and pianists who worked in both classical and popular styles.

Most of his songs were written to words written by his brother, Ira Gershwin. Some of his most well-known works are Rhapsody in Blue, An American in Paris and Porgy and Bess, which is considered to be one of the most important American operas of the 20th century.

I Got Rhythm features beautiful harmonies, duets, solos, and mini vignettes of song and dance. Each song sparkles with pure Americana from the 20's and 30's. Come and take a step back in time as you enjoy this art-deco themed show starring Act II partner, Alfonso López, along with MaryJo Nelson, Sasha del Océano, Marsha Ward Ross, Alberto Ponce, and Andrew Sands.

This year's Funniest Musical... Bar Nun! (Pun intended!)
Produced by Act II Entertainment
Directed by Alfonso Lopez
Every Sunday at 7:00 pm

After an irrefutably positive response to its preview last Spring, Act II brings back this hilarious, Off-Broadway smash hit, with its five MALE musical comedy performers! This "unholy" version features uproarious horseplay and side-splitting jokes that are performed by some of PV's finest actors, Bert Ramirez, Shawn Morgan, José Jasso, Roberto Gomez, and Al Carswell. Check out their video, #sheNUNigans, to see them parasailing, racing down the Malecon on Segways and experimenting with tequila... All in full habits! The Act II nuns are always up to something new and irreverent! Directed by Alfonso López and choreographed by Steven Retchless, "Nunsense A-Men!" is the kind of show that picks you up and shakes you around and makes you want to dance. What more could you want from a musical than passion and laughter and fun? This is a show not to be missed at Act II Stages!

A Show with a Purpose: Every year, Act II has raised funds for a local charity during one of its shows. This year, Act II has chosen to support the Banderas Bay Women's Shelter! From now until the annual WHAT A DRAG charity event on March 10th, you can see a great show (Nunsense, A-Men!) and help the Banderas Bay Women's Shelter at the same time! Act II will match all donations made during this show! The funds will be presented to them at the WHAT A DRAG event in March! WHAT A DRAG is always hilarious and features a competition of straight men in "drag," who are raising funds for the Banderas Bay Women's Shelter. This year's fundraising goal is $1,000,000 pesos! Act II wants to help them get there!

A Celebration of the hit Broadway musical, Hair
A Don and Rhonda Production
Every Friday - 7:00 pm

Don and Rhonda Productions, (or as Danny Mininni calls them, "RHONDONDA Productions"), a staple on the Vallarta entertainment scene for more than 30 years, brings us another great show this season. Act II Entertainment constantly endeavors to bring big-stage hit musicals to its small and intimate stage. How do you bring huge, iconic musicals to the stage? You partner up with Don and Rhonda Productions, famous for bringing classic rock and the 60s genre alive! Their most recent productions were the sold out hits, California Dreamin' and last year's Woodstock '69.

"Hair" is the musical that brought rock and roll to the theatrical stage. This groundbreaking show celebrates youth, hippie counterculture, anti-war movement and sexual revolution of the 1960's with a score of unforgettable hits, including Hair, Aquarius, Easy to be Hard, and Good Morning Starshine, all of which have become part of our pop culture. This production is performed as a concert celebrating all the great music from the Broadway hit.

"HAIR is a PV Must-See! "I had the pleasure of seeing a wonderful production of Hair on Jan 25. This is PV's only totally live cast - dancers, singers and musicians. What a fun time! The arrangements were spot on and the musicianship and choreography were outstanding. Highly recommended!" - playbassatshaw on TripAdvisor

Hedda Lettuce, the six-time Drag Queen of the Year Award-winner (HX magazine) and the legendary "green goddess" of drag, is excited to return to Puerto Vallarta for her FOURTH "sold out" season! Her show, this year, is a loving send-up to her favorite town... Puerto Vallarta! Hedda will glamorize another season as she dishes out a tossed salad of improvisational comedy, sultry songs, and dazzling gowns. (And it's entirely fat-free!) She will gladly engage you in a night of storytelling, bawdy and biting wit, spontaneous comedy, and live (not lip-synched) singing! Her show includes her nationally-acclaimed original comedic music that is peppered with parodies of old time favorites and startling satire. Hedda Lettuce is one of New York City's premiere drag queens and keeps the audience screaming with laughter for the entire show!

"Awesome great show. I highly recommend Hedda Lettuce, she is an amazing performer." - C Sailor, Puerto Vallarta 11/15/18

"...Hedda Lettuce was hilarious! A little of Dame Edna, a little Joan Rivers and perhaps a smidgen of Don Rickles' snarkiness, but truly, her truly, her comedy is uniquely hers - and a laugh riot!" MitziGabor, 12/16/18, TripAdvisor
