January 24, 2020

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 worked hard to provide audiences with consistently excellent entertainment in an elegant, comfortable setting. Presenting four top-notch shows, seven nights a week, this 5-star venue brings Puerto Vallarta The Best Of The Best. So what are you waiting for? Get your tickets today!

Puerto Vallarta Has a Shining New Star!

Marc Lopez exploded onto the Puerto Vallarta entertainment scene recently from Mexico City, and is now a certified star! On January 14, he opened his Tuesday evening show, "Crooners and Legends," featuring the music of Frankie Valli, Michael Bublé, the Jersey Boys, and many other favorite performers of the past, and everyone has been talking about his incredible talent, and amazing 5-STAR reviews are coming in!

This young man, with his charismatic personality and stunning good looks, is the perfect "vehicle" for this genre of music. His voice is crystal clear and powerful, and his high notes (a la Frankie Valli) brought chills to the audience.

Also featuring the beautiful Ximena Pena Esparza and Miana Melendrez as backup singers and dancers, Marc's show is high energy from start to finish. He demonstrated incredible showmanship as he sang and danced his way across the stage, and the standing ovations he received were well-deserved. Marc is a newcomer to Puerto Vallarta, but is originally from Sonora. He is a professional singer that has been performing in the most exclusive bars of Guadalajara, San Luis Potosí and México City for many years, as well as important private events all around México and the United States.

Act2PV is very proud of this young man, who also stars in their Best of Broadway musical revue on Fridays at 7:00 pm, and will soon be joining the cast of Mamma Mia! Tickets to his show are available at act2pv.com.

OPENING THIS WEEK

"Hello, My Name is Elder Smith"
Featuring Daniel LeClaire, Star of Broadway's "Book of Mormon"
Songs and Stories from a Broadway star!
Opening Night: Tuesday, January 28 at 7:30 pm


Act2PV is beyond excited to welcome Broadway star Daniel LeClaire to The Red Room stage. Daniel has many credits, including his recent portrayal of "Elder Smith" in Broadway's Book of Mormon, "Fender" in Hollywood Bowl's Hairspray, and as a singer/dancer in Betty Smith's 90th: A Tribute to America's Golden Girl on NBC.

LeClaire is a singer/songwriter/actor/dancer who will cover some of the greatest popular hits over the decades. He is a highly respected Jazz/Pop/Soul recording artist currently residing in New York City. After appearing in The Book of Mormon he set off to St. Louis and opened a speakeasy, quickly finding his place in the Jazz community.

Daniel currently stars in the heart-throb Boy Band Project, (premiering February 2 in The Red Room) and has shared the stage with Mary Tyler Moore, Nick Jonas, John Stamos, All American Rejects, Amy Poehler, Carol Burnett, Wayne Newton and many more. He has performed at world-renowned venues, such as The Kennedy Center, Fabulous Fox and Place des Arts, but is really looking forward to bringing his show to Act2PV.

"This show is a must-see! Professional with a capital P and abounding with talent! The bar has been raised to the heavens with this production!" - Donna Larkin

MAMMA MIA!
A Broadway Musical
Produced by Act2PV
Directed by Alfonso López
Mondays, Thursdays & Saturdays - 7:00 pm


Puerto Vallarta loves the Broadway musical, MAMMA MIA! In fact, this exciting production has been selling out every time it is performed! It has sold more tickets in just 2 ½ months than any other show in Puerto Vallarta history, and people are returning to see it again and again!

As a result, Act2PV and MTI International have extended the show into February. Inspired and enhanced by well-known ABBA tunes, MAMMA MIA! 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!

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.

"Finally took in Mamma Mia last night and it was so worth the wait!! So entertaining from start to finish, loved the music, the sets, the costumes, the actors!! Just great entertainment all round! Would love to go again, and plan to!" - TripAdvisor review

"The shows at Act II are always high-quality and entertaining, and Mamma Mia! is no exception. If anything, Act II has raised the bar with their production of this fast-paced and hilarious show that features the music of Abba." - TripAdvisor review


Be sure to check out MAMMA MIA!'s other reviews on TripAdvisor and Google.com. To buy tickets, go to act2pv.com. Get your tickets now because every performance has sold out!

"AVENUE Q"
A musical comedy featuring puppets and human 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.

"We saw this show in New York six years ago, and decided to see it again, this time in Puerto Vallarta! Loved every minute of it, adult puppetry with fantastic humor. Worthwhile seeing this fabulous show, bravo!" - TripAdvisor

"We recently moved to Nuevo Vallarta and are starting to explore things to do. We have not been down to the romantic zone much but decided to try out Avenue Q. We had an absolutely amazing time... The cast was unbelievably professional and extremely talented! They took the time to visit with us after the show and we are so excited to put every show on our calendar next season. If you get a chance while visiting Puerto Vallarta you should definitely check this place out. There is a very nice bar so go early and enjoy the entire experience!!" - TripAdvisor
