A Broadway Musical
Produced by Act2PV
Directed by Alfonso López

Puerto Vallarta loves the Broadway musical, Mamma Mia! In fact, it is the most exciting production ever in Vallarta history and has been selling out every time it is performed! It has sold more tickets in just 3 1/2 months than any other show in Puerto Vallarta history! Mamma Mia!, inspired and enhanced by well-known ABBA tunes, is a "feel good" kind of show that will make you want to sing along to the familiar songs, and get up and dance in the aisles! In fact, people are returning to see it again and again! The story revolves around Sophie, a 20-year old bride, who is planning to get married in a little hotel on a Greek island where she has worked with her single mother, Donna, her whole life. Unbeknownst to Donna, Sophie has longed to find the father she has never known. After accidentally finding and reading her mother's diary, she finds clues that point to three lovers from her mom's "free-spirited" past that "might" be her father. Sophie secretly invites all three of these men to her wedding, and hilarity ensues!

This delightful story features lots of nostalgic singing and dancing, as well as a HUGE cast, a creative and colorful set design, beautiful, custom-created costumes, and brilliant choreography! Playing Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Get your tickets now at act2pv.com

"Absolutely phenomenal! Not enough superlatives for these incredible performers. We saw last nights show on Broadway and Broadway should be as great as these performers. If you are in Puerto Vallarta treat yourself to the best entertainment you'll ever see. If they charged a $150. a ticket it would still be worth every penny. Boss man Danny you are the quintessential Pro." - TripAdvisor

"Avenue Q"
A quirky, funny Broadway musical featuring puppets and live actors!
Produced by Act2PV
Directed by Alfonso López
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.

*AVENUE Q has not been authorized or approved by the Jim Henson Company or Sesame Workshop, which have no responsibility for its content. Music & Lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, Book by Jeff Whitty, Based on an original concept by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx. Avenue Q is presented through special arrangement with Music Theater International (MTI).

"I thoroughly enjoyed, laughed until I cried, and I'm a sucker for happy endings - I've seen this show countless times before, in Ogunquit, Maine; New York City .... This performance rivaled the Best of them!" - TripAdvisor

"...We were entertained with treats for both our eyes and ears. Dancers, singers, acrobats, burlesque and even a modified striptease! ... were beautifully made up, costumed and styled.
