Last Chance to See "Twist & Shout"

Pedro is joined on the stage by Faride Talamas and actor, John Trapper, who plays the announcer.

Twist & Shout is performed in English and features lots of dancing, as well as jukebox hits from the 50s and 60s, including songs such as I Wanna Be Loved By You, Can't Take My Eyes Off of You, Be My Baby, Lollipop, I Only Want to Be With You, Twist and Shout... and more! Pedro and Faride are professional actors/musicians and have received rave reviews about this show. Everyone agrees that it is definitely a "feel-good" type of show, and is perfect entertainment for anyone who loves rock and roll music!

TripAdvisor Review:

"Twist and Shout. Saw this fantastic show opening week! ... We had such a great time with this show! From start to finish it was a fun feel good time. The two performers were spot on in voice and dancing. High energy from two adorable actors that have amazing chemistry. We are going to try to see it again before the end of its run. Definitely recommend for an upbeat good time."

Act II Summer Concert Series

Modern music with a vintage vibe!
Thursday, August 8 at 8:30 pm

This week, Act II's Summer Concert Series features "Lollipop," an exciting new band formed recently in Puerto Vallarta. Taking modern pop songs from the year 1990 forward, they turn them into something new, giving them a vintage style, like Swing, Jungle Swing, Soul, Rock & Roll, etc.

With a sound very much like the unforgettable Amy Winehouse, they will play your favorite Pop Hits like Say Something (A Big World & Xtina Aguilera), I’m Not the Only One (Sam Smith), and many others.

The band, "Lollipop," is just starting out; however, musicians Andrés Piedra, Losanna Dias, Gary Flores, Irving Flores and Luis Rascón have a lot of experience in the musical world. Most recently, they performed with Diana Villamonte in The Red Room, and recently made an appearance on TV Mar. A musical show with Modern music in old styles - an evening to remember!
