Entertainment Season Still Going On Strong at Act2PV

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – In the past, the entertainment scene in Puerto Vallarta has wound down after Easter. However, after two very busy summers, it is obvious that Puerto Vallarta has become a summer tourist destination! As a result, Act2PV is committed to continuing to offer 5-star entertainment for the summer season, including It’s Raining Men, Best of Broadway, Jersey Boys, and many other shows!

Bringing you the BEST OF THE BEST entertainment for 2022, Act2PV is the only 5-star venue in Vallarta and it truly has something for everyone, including high-quality theatrical productions, internationally renowned musical cabaret, and hilarious drag shows.

Act2PV’s incredible entertainment, with its amazing sound and lighting systems, is on par with any theater in North America… at a very affordable price! Come early and enjoy a drink in the beautiful, fully-equipped Encore bar. Drinks are also served during the show for your enjoyment.

Act2PV has been designated by TripAdvisor as the #1 Entertainment Venue in the Banderas Bay and #2 on the list of “Things to Do in Puerto Vallarta!”

Here are some of the 5-star reviews on TripAdvisor about Act2PV:

“Any night of the week is the right night to visit Act2PV…!”

…Act2PV is back, it’s professional and worth your visit after time at the pool or beach.”

“…Go catch any of the shows at ACT2PV, you will be entertained, BTW I am a local not a tourist, I highly recommend this show!”

“Covid kept us debating whether to go to ACT2PV. We were so glad that we decided to go. The voices, the choices of Broadway songs, the dancing all took us away from the world of the pandemic and lifted our spirits!”

BN Editor’s Note: It is with much sadness that we report the death of Act2PV co-owner/founding partner Danny Mininni, who passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, April 12, 2022. An actor, director, entrepreneur, educator and an inspiration to many, Mininni pioneered the entertainment scene in Puerto Vallarta when he, along with co-founders Elizabeth Ensor (Wiggins) and David Restivo, opened the Act II Stages entertainment complex on November 14, 2013. Over the years there have been many changes (like rebranding to Act2PV and the 2018 naming of Oscar Cisneros and Alfonso Lopez as partners) but one thing has remained the same: the realization of Danny’s dream of bringing high-quality entertainment to Puerto Vallarta. He lived for the theater, for the artists and for giving audiences a memorable experience. He will be sorely missed by many. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family, friends, and all of those who are part of the Act2PV family of friends.

The Man Behind the Dance at Act2PV: Edgar Román

It was only two years ago that co-administrators of Act2PV, Alfonso Lopez and Danny Mininni, approached Edgar Román, an ensemble dancer, and offered him the opportunity to be the Dance Captain of the hit musical, Mamma Mia!, now in its third season in the Main Stage at Act2PV. “I don’t think I had ever even heard him talk,” recalls Danny, Act2PV partner. “But it was just amazing how quickly Edgar could teach the actors the choreography of a show, sometimes adding a new actor to the show in a week’s time!”

Edgar stepped up to his new role like a champ, and it was not long afterward that he was offered the position of Act2PV’s “In-house Choreographer!” He immediately took over the choreography for the hit show, The Best of Broadway, (and stars in it, too), then created the choreography for the hit show, Supreme, and many other popular shows at Act2PV.

Last summer, Danny and Alfonso approached Edgar with a brand-new show concept and asked him to partner with Act2PV to produce and direct the brand-new hit show, It’s Raining Men! This “Beyoncé meets Magic Mike” music/dance revue, with live vocals by international headliner, Joi Carter, has delighted audiences with the professional level of dance that was originally planned to be a Male Revue, but has now been taken to the level of a top Las Vegas variety show!

As part of Act2PV’s Cabaret Festival, Edgar’s next project, “It’s Britney Bitch,” (starring Ximena Esparza, Miana Melendez and dancers, Francisco Guízar, Luiger Paez, Sue Valero, Ariel Zaldivar, and Edgar) opened on March 22 to an extremely enthusiastic full house! It was performed again on April 5 to another sold-out house and has gotten rave reviews everywhere! “It’s Britney Bitch” has been scheduled for 3 additional performances on April 30, May 14 and May 28. It is destined to be the next megahit in Puerto Vallarta, with Edgar as choreographer, producer and dancer!

Edgar is 26 years old has studied classical dance, jazz, Latin rhythms, urban rhythms at many recognized academies, such as Fomento Artistico Cordobes, Centro de Danza y Ballet de Cordoba, Danzarre and Urban Studio and Studio 84. Act2PV is so excited to have this young man on their team and has many great projects for him next season, including being the choreographer for the Broadway revival of the hit musical Chicago! which is scheduled to open the first week of November. Act2PV is happy to report that they have already contracted with Edgar to be the Act2PV choreographer for next season, and he will continue to produce more exciting projects! Look for more amazing shows from Puerto Vallarta’s newest creative sensation!

TripAdvisor 5 Star Reviews:

“Better late than never but I wanted to leave a very very positive review for the show I saw last night with three of my friends. I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed this and we were amazed at the choreography probably the best dance choreography show we’ve seen in Vallarta, and I can’t recommend this enough…This girl put her heart and soul into this show and again the dancing and the choreography is among the best I have ever seen here in Vallarta. I can’t say enough good things about her show. It’s Britney, B*tch! Go see it!!”

“I was amazed with the talent of Ximena Esparza and her dancers! Her stage presence and talent are outstanding! This is the best show I have ever seen at Act2PV so far. Terrific chorus, beautiful live vocals, it’s more than professional! Ximena and Edgar produced a HIT! The audience was crazy! They had a STAND OVATION that lasted 2 minutes! We can’t wait to see her again! If you in town you definitely can’t miss this show. Highly recommended.”
