OPENING THIS WEEK AT ACT2PV

"Talk Dirty to Me" - 3 SHOWS ONLY!
Starring International Drag Star, Jackie Beat
Opening Night: Wednesday, March 18 (Party 8:30 pm / Show 9:30 pm)


Drag superstar Jackie Beat has been entertaining audiences across the U.S. and Europe for over twenty-five years with her razor-sharp comedy and hysterical song parodies. She not only warps hits by Britney Spears, Madonna, Mary J. Blige, Christina Aguilera, Cher, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Mariah Carey and many others, but she flawlessly sings her twisted new versions LIVE - hitting every last note.

Jackie's hilarious music videos on YouTube are huge hits that have been seen by millions of people, AND HER stand-up has been featured in comedy clubs across the US and on Comedy Central, VH-1 and MTV. Her scathing song parodies have been featured on America's Top Forty with Ryan Seacrest, The Howard Stern Show, Much Music TV, Yo on E! and PerezHilton.com.

She has appeared on many TV shows, such as Sex and the City, and in several movies, including Flawless with Robert DeNiro, the festival hit Wigstock The Movie, and the camp cult horror favorite, Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver. Jackie has also been in many off-Broadway productions, performed on countless cruises ships, and toured with Roseanne Barr as her opening act. Whether you're looking for one or two show-stopping, jaw-dropping numbers - or a full ONE HOUR show of music and comedy - Jackie Beat is your "girl!"

"Jackie Beat is my fav drag queen and she is always so much fun!" - PH Diamond

"Jackie ALWAYS gives an incredible show! Funny as hell and constantly keeps the audience in gut-wrenching laughter. She is an amazing performer and I can't wait to see her next show." - Austin Nation

"MAMMA MIA!" EXTENDED THROUGH APRIL!

"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, 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! Mondays, Thursdays & Saturdays at 7:00 pm. Get your tickets at act2pv.com

"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

"...There is the possibility that this is the top production in the history of Act2PV. It is that good, a show not to be missed." - Gary Beck, More of Beck's Best: Theater, Cabaret and More
