Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - There's always something going on at Act II STAGES. Cool Summer fun continues with Las Vegas-style cabaret shows, the best Karaoke Party in town and a series of concert by local bands; and the final touches are being put on the selection of shows that will be presented to Puerto Vallarta audiences next season.
This is always a fun time of the year for Act II Managing Partner, Danny Mininni, who has assembled an incredible team to help him this season. He commented that "Act II has never had a better team in place, with Corie DuChateau on Video production; Diego Lozano and Elizabeth Garza on Graphics and Website Design; Marsha Ward Ross as Staff Writer; Luis Olvera as Production Assistant; Pablo Corona as Marketing Director; and Laura Cazarez as Coordinator. I think we have the DREAM TEAM!"

Many favorites are returning to Act II, but there will be lots of exciting new shows, as well!

ABBA and its flamboyant costumes and catchy music, is considered to be one of the top musical groups in history, having sold over 500 million albums!

Translation: "The Platypus" is a hilarious work about relationships in postmodern social networks. It begins with the story of Ana and Paco, who have had a loving, but boring relationship for several years. Ana is a student, working on her thesis about the platypus, a curious, unclassifiable and exotic animal. Paco decides to add some excitement when he asks Ana about the possibility of having an open relationship. This triggers a discussion around their desires for experimentation, and poses the possibility of how infidelity could help them rediscover their passions, fears and realities. Featuring Nixtehá Sosa, Andres Vázquez, Omar Lucian, Alberto Sosa, and José Esqueda, "El Ornitorrinco" is directed by Adriana Millán.
