TripAdvisor Reviews:
Gabe's show was terrific! His ability to weave stories and songs together about himself, his life, and the impact music and lyrics have had on him is nothing short of amazing. At times you will laugh, become nostalgic, hum or sing along while being throughly entertained. Gabe's energy and talent are amazing.

What a great performance. Gabe is certainly a natural on stage! We all loved the music, loved Gabe's voice, and loved the emotions he shared with the audience. We would highly recommend seeing any show Gabe is in!

Omg, what a wonderful show. Gabe's voice is awesome. I was laughing one minute and close to tears the next. He is an amazing talent!


GREAT BROADWAY MUSICALS PRODUCED BY ACT2PV

MAMMA MIA!, the biggest, most exciting musical ever produced in Puerto Vallarta, is a huge hit! Built around 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, raved about this flashy, well-cast production of the beloved 1980's Mamma Mia! The reviews on Facebook, TripAdvisor and GoogleMyBusiness.com are amazing! People are comparing it favorably to productions they have seen New York, Toronto and London! Directed by Alfonso López, this blockbuster show continues every Monday, Thursday, and Saturday at 7:00 pm. Tickets are available at act2pv.com.

AVENUE Q is a delightful, laugh-out-loud American musical that 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. 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. Directed by Alfonso López, the show continues every Wednesday at 7:00 pm through December 25. Tickets are available at act2pv.com.
