Puerto Vallarta’s ‘holy trinity of entertainment,’ this season is a delightful mix of Broadway, Drag and Tribute Shows. Of course, there are scores of other choices too, but let’s talk about Broadway. Many of us are utterly star-struck as we worship at the altar of Broadway. A true Broadway star makes us weak at the knees and we hang on every note and gesture.
In recent years, Vallarta has attracted some notable Broadway performers, and ACT2PV is hosting one of the best this season. David Sabella has an impressive performance history on Broadway and in the Cabaret scene nationwide. David delivers a thrilling and satisfying performance each time he takes the stage. The voice, the control, the theatrics and the likeability are all there in one gorgeous package. David was born to perform and his appreciative audiences keep coming back for more!

At the request of his fans and friends, on February 8 at 5:00 pm David will be taking center stage as HIMSELF in his award-winning show, Time Heals. An invigorating look at great American standards, rearranged for the 21st century, “Time Heals” is a harmonious blend of songs that, using sensitivity and humor, are structured like a play that delves into the complexities of life. His songs, accompanied by his musical director, Broadway’s own Mark Hartman, are electrifying arrangements and offer a unique and intimate experience.
David Sabella is an award-winning singer/actor, specializing in vocal performance across gender lines. As a male soprano, Sabella toured for years with opera parody troupe, La Gran Scena Opera Co., before winning the Luciano Pavarotti International Voice Competition (1995), when Pavarotti himself publicly declared him to be “Excellent, not good, excellent!” He went on to co-star in the 1996 Broadway revival of Chicago, as “Mary Sunshine.”
As a classical countertenor, Sabella, along with colleagues David Daniels, Brian Asawa, and Mark Crayton, is cited as one of the originators of the “American sound” of countertenor, and the only artist working in the popular music genres of Broadway, Pop, and Great American Songbook.
Sabella currently performs as himself, and as “Amanda Reckonwith,” America’s most beloved “Spento” soprano. For more information, please visit davidsabella.com, or amandareckonwith.com. For show descriptions or tickets go to: act2pv.com.
