YOUR WELL-BEING IS OUR #1 PRIORITY!
As the world navigates its way through finding a new normal, please understand that Act2PV is very serious about protecting our clients, our staff, and our entertainers. In addition to observing all government requirements (mandatory masks, hand sanitizers, feet sanitizers, temperatures taken, etc), Act2PV has implemented extra safety measures in our Main Stage theater, including ozone purifiers, ozone disinfectors, air purifiers and heppa filters. We will also be operating at reduced capacity, with some seats blocked off in order to follow governmental social distancing requirements.
A Note from Act2PV Founding Partner, Danny Mininni:
I am on Cloud 9! Live Entertainment is Alive Again in Puerto Vallarta! Our opening night at Act2PV was sold-out and the audience loved it! And the verdict is in... our brand-new, open-air Starlight Cabaret is a HIT! We did finally get our permit for the awning that we were waiting for, and we were able to get everything done for our opening night show. Now, everyone has been telling me how wonderful it is to be able to enjoy entertainment again in a SAFE place and I am thrilled that we could pull it all together in time to make it happen. Whew!
Speaking of "pulling it all together," I would like to take a moment to thank my wonderful staff for all the hard work and dedication they put into getting everything done for our Covid certifications, as well as our grand opening. Oscar Adrian Cisneros, Alfonso Lσpez, and I thank our team of Alex Camacho Ahumada, Joss Olmos, Madai Garcia, Kato Espinosa, Cesar Aboytez, Jorge Enriquez Martine, Christian Cisneros, Amir Ramirez, Efrain Arellano, Sιbastien Lepage, Lalas Heiquez, Fabiola Noemi Lopez, Javier Pilar, Omar Lucian Fernanda, Alex, Junior Aka Lupido, Oscar G. Yaρez, Orient Umbridge, Monica Elizabeth Franco Becerra, and Marsha Ward Ross. (I hope I didn't miss anybody.) I don't know what I have done to deserve such loyal, hardworking loving staff members, and that's not even mentioning all the hardworking performers. YOU ALL ROCK!!
Since we are a unique business, the rules for Covid protocol had to be extreme. But, as a result of all their hard work, The City was super-impressed with all we have done to make sure that Act2PV safe for its patrons. They could not believe all the extras that we implemented. This is a huge win for us and I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart!
I would also like to thank our hardworking seamstress, Diana Temis, for creating the beautiful costumes for our Reflections show, and our hot, new choreographer, Edgar Roman, for all his hard work with the performers, too!
Everyone tells me that they loved my Eggplant Lasagna (and Marsha's cookies) at the grand opening. And the "Reflections" show was a huge hit! Daniela, Brenda and Faride, you were dynamite! Your audience loved you and so did I! It was such a treat to see so many old friends and meet new ones on that special night. I really hope that you will join us at some of our other new shows this week. This will definitely be a season to remember. We are so thankful for your support and look forward to welcoming you soon!
"REFLECTIONS" SHOW REVIEWS
"OMG! I am still flying high. What an incredible night. The best thing to happen all year. Lord Danny Mininni you outdid yourself. Absolutely blown away by the new venue up on the "roof" being open air. All protocol in place with only tables for 4 and appropriately spaced.
Then there was the entertainment. This has got to be the best show so far that I can recall. Although I think I said that about Chorus Line!!! These ladies have powerful voices and harmonize so incredibly well. And the music selection...well only the best of Motown as far as I can tell. The costumes were also to die for and representative of the era. Then there was the routines...
Congrats to everyone involved and I wish you all the most success. You truly deserve it. All your hard work has really paid off. I encourage everyone to catch one of the many offerings this season. I feel so lucky to have been able to attend the opening (thank you Mike and Karen Erp) and also get a taste of other shows being available." ~ Janice Gonzalez
"This new venue is great! Please don't shut it down... EVER!" ~ Keith Vaughn
"Incredible Opening Night! Danny, Alfonso and Oscar, and the entire Act2PV staff, thank you for the incredible opening night party tonight! I haven't really been out since March and was apprehensive about what to expect, but I was actually impressed with the new outdoor space! It was so reassuring to see how seriously you have taken your responsibility to create a safe place for entertainment! Even in this new, open-air environment, everyone was wearing a mask (including the wait staff) when they were walking around, the tables were separated by more than 6 feet, and seating was limited to 2 or 4 people per table. Your Eggplant Parmesan dinner was to die for (and I don't even like eggplant)!
I loved the show, Reflections, too! The songs brought back so many memories! The performers were so talented and polished and their costumes were incredible! I felt like I was watching a Las Vegas show! I'm very happy that you have figured out a way to create a "new normal" for entertainment in Puerto Vallarta. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to our safety. I look forward to seeing lots more shows at Act2PV this season!
~ H.J. Ross
