"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!

A NuName Production
Directed by Edoardo Rocha
Saturday, April 20 at 7:00 pm

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.

You will feel like you had an intimate Vegas night out! The staff treats you like family with free snack appetizers in the lounge ... Mama greeted everyone after the show!
