Sold-Out Shows Start the 2019/2020 Season at Act2PV

November 08, 2019

Act2PV is located in the Romantic Zone at the corner of Insurgentes and Basilio Badillo on the south side of Puerto Vallarta. For more information, call 222-1512, or visit Act2PV's website or Facebook page.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Act2PV has begun its seventh exciting year with excitement, anticipation, new friends (and old), and Sold-Out shows! "The Best Performing Arts Venue in Banderas Bay" (2019 poll conducted by Vallarta Tribune) is breaking records for the number of tickets sold in November.

TripAdvisor rates Act2PV at #2 on their list of the "Best Places in Puerto Vallarta," and this 5-star venue truly brings you 'The Best of the Best' in its 2019/2020 season, presenting something for everyone!

Mamma Mia!, the biggest, most exciting musical ever produced in Puerto Vallarta, is a huge hit! Built around a whole lot of hit ABBA songs, it is the story of a young girl's quest to find out who her father is. The opening night audience, dressed in white, was over the moon about this flashy, well-cast production of the beloved 1980's Mamma Mia! The show continues every Monday, Thursday, and Saturday.

There are three shows opening at Act2PV this week! On Friday, November 8, "Retchless" opens, starring Singer/Dancer/International Pole Dance Champion and America's Got Talent semifinalist, Steven Retchless.

On Monday, November 11, Diana Villamonte, Voice of Mexico runner-up and #1 songstress in Vallarta, returns to The Red Room with her highly-anticipated new show, "Beyond Motown." And, on Wednesday, November 13, the hilarious, slightly irreverent, and heart-warming Broadway musical, "AVENUE Q," opens on The Main Stage.

Whether it's the high-quality theater productions, or internationally-renowned cabaret acts and drag shows, Act2PV's incredible entertainment with its incredible sound and lighting systems, is on par with any theater in North America. Excellent live musical entertainment (with no cover) is also offered in the beautiful, fully-equipped Encore bar, so come early and enjoy a drink.

Diana Villamonte's "Beyond Motown"
Produced by Act2PV
Directed by Alfonso López
Opening Night - Friday, November 11 - 7:30 pm
Opening Night Party: 6:30 pm
Mondays - 7:30 pm
Fridays - 5:00 pm


Diana Villamonte, TV Star, "The Voice of Mexico" Runner-Up, and the #1 Performer in Puerto Vallarta, returns for her THIRD amazing season with a brand new show, "Beyond Motown!"

Diana has proven that she can do it all... Motown, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, Motown and Beyond. Now, she (and her producer, Alfonso Lopez) have created an all-new show, called "Beyond Motown!" This new show goes WAY beyond Motown, featuring songs by The Supremes, Michael Jackson, Queen, The Temptations, Frank Sinatra, Mariah Carey, The Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Alicia Keys, and MANY more.

This tiny little gal with the powerhouse voice and infectious personality sings with such vocal power, precision, and exceptional range that she has become the "queen" of the power ballad. Diana's passion and commitment to her music, as well as her rich, belting notes and electrifying top register bring tears to your eyes.

It is rare to find talent such as hers! Act2PV's managing partner, Danny Mininni, says, "Diana is truly one of the most talented performers that has ever crossed our stage. She is destined to be a huge star! We are so proud of her and urge you to join the thousands of people who have seen her show. You will never forget her." Tickets are available at act2pv.com.

"Diana Villamonte is a young singer with a dynamic voice and stage presence. A great voice- comfortable singing both Whitney Houston and Motown." - TripAdvisor

"Just when we thought what dazzled us most about Puerto Vallarta was its lush mountains and landscapes, we discovered another jewel just as brilliant! Remember the name Diana Villamonte, because she's one of the most talented and electrifying new singing sensations to come along in a while! … Not only is she a powerfully gifted singer, Ms. Villamonte is a natural and captivating stage performer. How best to describe her talent? Let's just say that when she pays tribute to such iconic powerhouses as Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, Etta James, Donna Summer and Shirley Bassey, you're virtually just as enamored by her performance of the songs as you are by the originators!" - TripAdvisor

"AVENUE Q"
A musical comedy featuring puppets and human actors
Produced by Act II Entertainment
Directed by Alfonso López
Opening Night - Wednesday November 13 - Party 6:00 pm / Show - 7:00 pm
Wednesdays - 7:00 pm


AVENUE Q is a delightful, laugh-out-loud American musical that was performed on Broadway from 2003 to 2019. 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 has quickly become a favorite for audiences everywhere!

Although the show addresses humorous adult issues (puppet sex!) and is not recommended for children, it is actually very similar to a "well-known children's television show," where puppets are friends.

Audiences everywhere have been captivated by this fresh and funny story, and it won the prestigious 2004 "Triple Crown" for Tony Awards... Best Music, Best Score and Best Book! During its 6-month run at Act2PV three years ago, almost every show was sold out!

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