I've been struggling to write something to capture the mood of the evening… Probably my most important contribution to this will be to say that I saw it last week (with friends) and I'm going next week (with other friends)! My husband, Gholi, loves the music and said, "When can we go again?
My husband and I just attended a cabaret at Act II. We were so excited to get to see three beautiful young ladies in the debut of "TRINITY!" This show featured the last three winners of the Voice of Vallarta singing competition, and they were great! I’m so excited to find such great talent here in Puerto Vallarta, and will definitely go back to Act II on my next trip!
As a full-time resident of Puerto Vallarta, I always look for things to do in the summer! Last night, my husband and I had the opportunity to see the fabulous first Thursday night show of Act II's "Spotlight on Vallarta" Summer Series! Danny Mininni, owner of Act II, told us that the series is designed to recognize and promote local talent during the summer season. So, local resident, Gabe Arcineaga, put on a show that could easily be rival any cabaret show in the U.S! Gabe is already a seasoned actor and he toured with Charo "back in the day," but this was his first performance in a one-man cabaret show setting! OMG!!
I have attended plays, groups of musicians in Stages and soloists in the Red Room and have nothing but a wonderful receptive time. Danny Mininni hosts a warm place to mingle with friends or make new ones while viewing top entertainment of many genres from all over the world, in addition to fantastic local talent. I urge everyone to check out this locale, as good as one would find anywhere. Puerto Vallarta s becoming a premier draw for music and acting fans.
We were looking for something unique and affordable to do in PV. We really enjoy local theatre/shows when we travel. The red room is an intimate space and staff were great. Show we saw with Mama Tits and she was a entertaining and motivational. Although we were only heterosexual couple it was a blast. Act II has range of shows available during higher season. I'd highly recommend checking this place out. We will return for future shows
This is such a bawdy good time! We have seen the Dueling Divas twice and Joanne's solo show once. They are great singers and fun entertainers! Costume changes and THOSE SHOES! What amazing range!
The time flew right by each time and I never wanted the shows to end! Laughed so much!
This is a definite stop each time we visit PV.
We first discovered Act II Stages in December 2015 on our first visit to Puerto Vallarta. We attended 3-4 evening performances in the Red Room that week -- comedy, singing, drag -- all good. We enjoyed it so much we returned to Puerto Vallarta in December 2016 and again went to Act II a few times. What a fun time! Highly recommend.
