Act II's #1 Musical, Little Shop of Horrors, Closes Thursday, April 18

"Little Shop of Horrors"
A Cult Musical/Horror Comedy
Produced by Act II Entertainment
Directed by Alfonso López
FINAL SHOW: Thursday, April 18 - 7:00 pm
Tickets are available at

One of Off-Broadway's most popular cult musicals, Little Shop of Horrors is the hilarious tale of a down-and-out Skid Row floral assistant, the girl he loved, and a strange new, man-eating plant threatening to tear their world apart. This cult classic was one of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows and has become a household name thanks to a highly successful film version and a fantastic musical score! For the past 30 years, people just can't get the catchy music out of their heads!

Directed by Alfonso López, the uber-talented director of "Rocky Horror" last year, this beloved horror/comedy/rock/musical is another first-class production at Act II and brings back the sounds and ambiance of the rock 'n' roll era. It stars many of your favorite Act II actors, plus some wonderful new faces, including Maria Rose, Joey Martinez, Alex McLauchlan, Andrew Sands, Shawn Morgan, Eli Estrada, Sasha del Oceano, and Ximena Peña Esparza. It also features the return of Act II Managing Partner, Danny Mininni, to the stage, with his portrayal of the crotchety and hilarious "Mr. Mushnik." With its delightful cast and toe-tapping music, Little Shop of Horrors is this season's must-see show!

"Nunsense, A-Men!"
This year's Funniest Musical... Bar Nun! (Pun intended!)

Nunsense, A-Men! is a take-off on the 2nd longest-running Off-Broadway smash hit, Nunsense, only second to Little Shop of Horrors. But here in Puerto Vallarta, all of the characters are MALE musical comedy performers! Act II's "sacrilegious" version of "Nunsense" 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!

In addition to PV, JoAnna has enjoyed 6 smash seasons in Provincetown, Massachusetts, and has had 8 fabulous summer seasons in Ogunquit, Maine.

OPENING NIGHT - Tuesday, April 23 - Party 6:30 pm / Show 7:30 pm
April 23, 25, 27, & 30, and May 2 & 4 at 7:30 pm

Due to popular demand Act II's favorite songstress, Renee Armand, returns to Puerto Vallarta for her fourth exciting season!

This "wild child" of the 60's grew up in Laurel Canyon, the crossroads between Beverly Hills and Hollywood, at the same time as many of her good friends, including Mama Cass, Carly Simon, The Beatles, The Eagles, James Taylor, George Harrison, Carole King, Linda Ronstadt and more. They worked together, played together, and wrote the music that shaped a generation.

Sharing the music of the 60's and 70's, this free-spirited, vibrant woman will captivate you with her incredible talent, her warmth and her honesty. Her heartfelt tributes and humor, combined with a magnificent, soulful voice will touch you like never before, and you'll find yourself reliving those magical times singing along to the familiar tunes.

Renee sang and toured with John Denver for six years, and is the voice behind the Academy Award-winning song, "The Morning After," from the movie The Poseidon Adventure. She has performed to sold-out audiences at Act II for the past four years, and, no doubt, will do so again this year. This show is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and a MUST-SEE in Puerto Vallarta! Get your tickets TODAY!

"Avenue Q"
Puerto Vallarta's #1 Musical - EVER!
Directed by Alfonso López
OPENING NIGHT: Monday, May 6 - Party 6:00 pm / Show 7:00 pm
Continuing Shows: May 6, 8, 11, 13, 15, 18, 20, 22 & 25 - 7:00 pm

"Avenue Q," the most popular musical ever presented in Puerto Vallarta, returns in May, just in time for Pride Week! Avenue Q is a delightful, laugh-out-loud American musical that was performed on Broadway from 2003 to 2009. Audiences everywhere have been captivated by its fresh and funny story, and it won the prestigious 2004 "Triple Crown" for Tony Awards... Best Music, Best Score and Best Book!

The story of Avenue Q takes place in New York City and the street is Avenue Q, the only address you can afford when you're fresh out of college, out of a job, or just trying to find your purpose in life. It is a coming-of-age parable that satirizes the issues and anxieties of entering adulthood.

Filled with gut-busting humor and a delightfully catchy score (not to mention the use of full-size puppets that are animated by unconcealed human puppeteers), Avenue Q is a truly unique show that received rave reviews at Act II two years ago!

Although the show addresses slightly bawdy, humorous adult issues (and is not recommended for children), it is very similar to a beloved children's show - a place where puppets are friends. Drected by Act II Entertainment's Musical Director, Alfonso Lopez, Avenue Q features tons of local talent.

Simply put, this show is the perfect choice for those who may be wondering how the hell we got to this point in our lives and are constantly questioning your purpose in life. But, for now, you can just sit back and enjoy a belly-laugh (or two!) and rejoice at the marvel of this modern-day musical!


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 (Through May 24)

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

The iconic American musical, Chicago, features music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and a book by Ebb and John Fosse. When it debuted on Broadway back in the 1970's, Chicago became a classic and won 6 Tony Awards. The Broadway revival in 1996 now holds the record as the longest-running musical revival and the longest-running American musical in Broadway history.

This NuName Production is absolutely amazing! It features 12 dancers, along with stage favorites, Michael Gibney, MaryJo Nelson, Maria Rose, Edoardo Rocha, Joan Houston, and Marsha Ward Ross! This spectacular musical is as addictive as gossip rags, and as unforgettable as any trial of the century. It is the one show you can always count on to give you the thrills and memories that only come from seeing a Broadway musical. It is an unforgettable journey into the crime and corruption of the 1920's.
