Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - As we head into mid-March, the hits keep 'marching on' at Act II Stages - THE PLACE to go for the best in live cabaret, music, comedy, stage plays and drag shows in Puerto Vallarta. Here's a look at this week's lineup, which includes the world-premiere of The Kinsey Sicks' new show!

Even as Vallarta's "high" season winds down, Act II remains 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!

With 3-4 shows (in English) every night to choose from, there is something for everyone. The slate of shows starts at 5:00 pm, and feature the best performers in the Banderas Bay area. Many of these shows sell out, so check out the schedule below and get your tickets TODAY! at


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.

General Auditions for the 2019/2020 season will be held at Act II Entertainment complex on March 23. We are looking for dancers, actors, and singers. Come prepared to learn a dance and bring two songs on a USB for your audition.

The Kinsey Sicks, America's Favorite Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet, celebrate their 25th anniversary at Act II with this hilarious world-premiere show! 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!

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!

Diana Villamonte's "I Will Always Love You"
A Musical Tribute to Whitney Houston, featuring PV's #1 Star
Produced by Act II Entertainment
Every Friday at 7:30 pm

This year, we are thrilled to announce that Diana, along with director Alfonso López, has created yet ANOTHER sensational hit show, "I Will Always Love You," a musical tribute to Whitney Houston! Diana, with her powerhouse voice and infectious personality, is the perfect singer to take on the iconic Whitney (her lifelong inspiration). The highlight of Diana's show last year was when she previewed some of her Whitney Houston songs, often having most audience members in tears. Diana blew the audience away, and her fans begged for a whole show of Whitney's songs!

"Run don't walk to see both [of Diana's] shows! You can then say 'I saw her when!' To see this amazing talent in such a warm and intimate setting will blow you away! Both her Motown and Beyond and her Tribute to Whitney Houston shows are unbelievable! She came in first runner up this year on The Voice of Mexico. I have no doubt she would have won if all of her US & Canadian fans had Mexican phones and were able to vote! She will be packing in huge stadiums soon... so don't miss this show!" - sgunze, on Trip Advisor 1/7/19
