The DUELING DRAG DIVAS have performed across the Globe from Maine to Spain, Los Angeles, Florida, Chicago, Minneapolis to Puerto Vallarta and back again!
They're BAAAAACK!!! 2018 Season at RED ROOM/ACT II STAGES in PV!
Emmy Award Winner, Chi Chi Rones, and NY Times-Acclaimed Impressionist, Jo Anna, return to Puerto Vallarta for their 5th season together as THE DUELING DRAG DIVAS! Their all-new show opens December 31st in The Red Room at 9:30 pm. This is an all-live SINGING and COMEDY cabaret show and is guaranteed to make you laugh!
In addition to presenting an all-new show, Chi Chi and Jo Anna promise you a totally new format as these two divas BATTLE each other with "boxing-style" rounds. AND…. the audience gets to vote for the winner! They will be pitting icons against each other such as Cher vs Liza, a Disney round… Maleficent vs Ursula, the Brits… Adele vs Amy Winehouse, Dueling Tina Turners, a bonus Broadway Belters round, Streisand duets and lots more! Of course, the audience also gets a chance to get on stage and have some fun too!
This dynamic duo partnered five years ago here in Puerto Vallarta and have enjoyed performing together ever since. Although both are acclaimed vocal impressionists in their own right, Chi Chi and Jo Anna approach the celebrities they impersonate from different perspectives. Where Jo Anna is the more zany, crazy, campy one, Chi Chi is the more glamorous, legendary diva. Together, they are a force to be reckoned with… a perfect storm. Their shows are always hip, trendy and never disappoint. You will feel like you've just been to the best party ever!
The DUELING DRAG DIVAS have performed across the Globe from Maine to Spain, Los Angeles, Florida, Chicago, Minneapolis to Puerto Vallarta and back again! Chi Chi has also performed on numerous RSVP Cruises around the world since 2001. For many years, Jo Anna performed in Provincetown in the summer. Currently, they spend their summers performing in Ogunquit, Maine.
We went to opening night of Cesar's Eric Clapton show and to put it mildly it was AWESOME! If we lived in Vallarta we would be seeing every performance, can't wait until we're back. Cesar is a performer that truly has an amazing gift and enjoys sharing it with everyone.
I often check out the early shows at Act II in Puerto Vallarta as my evening entertainment (I'm usually on my own). Tonight's performance of Rocky Horror was a fabulous time,with a particular standout of Gabe Arciniega. His singing was crisp and clear. Every word and movement showed that he really knows the meaning of this show. Of course I was thrilled by the entire cast and performance, as I think was everyone in the audience (Rocky virgins and old pros alike). Usually I wait until the end of my trip to post reviews but I would hate for people to miss this show. Many of the cast are known locally and have their fans,so I won't go through the performers individually, except to say that I Ioved the latin Rocky and Brad really rocked those tighty whities. Thank you everyone for such a fun time.
This duo is an absolute must to see if you are visiting Puerto Vallarta in November and December......high energy, intimate, sensual.....all that is needed to make their show incredibly enjoyable......it is a show you can see over and over without ever tiring of it......they’ve put everything they have into it......not to be missed....
We went to see the 2017 season opener of “Us Two” Daniel and Noemi and the Band at the Red Room.
What an incredible show performed in a beautiful intimate setting. Talent, energy, emotion and fun all in one fantastic package.
Who needs to go to Las Vegas when one can see a show of this quality right in the heart of “Old Town” Puerto Vallarta!
This show is “must do” for everyone visiting this beautiful city; the show will leave you amazed and feeling “up”.
"Us Two" is a powerhouse when it comes to music. Greatly talented and personable, the duo offers hits from the 80's and 90's with an occasional nod to current hits. The Red Room itself has been renovated and is even more delightful.
My husband and I with friends went out to see the opening night of the Rocky horror picture show at Act II entertainment on the main stage. From the moment that show opened it was obvious that it was going to be a stunner. I've seen the show before in larger venues and in bigger cities, but this show was magnificent. The set design was one of the best I've seen, the actors and singers and dancers captured their roles perfectly. The audience was charged, clapping, whooping it up, laughing in the whole evening was just one great big barrel of fun. Act II entertainment, with the red room and the main stage and the lovely Encore bar is one of the best entertainment venues in Puerto Vallarta. I've seen many shows there and I have never been disappointed. I have my favorite performers as most people do, and I love the intimacy of the red room. And the main stage, well, it just keeps getting better and better and better.
This has to be one of the most fantastic set designs I've seen yet from Act2 entertainment! Given the popularity of this production, the producers have found a way to bring innovation and quality to a level unseen outside of big budget productions. The level of detail and visual effects are sure to please. Combine that with great coryography and costume design, the show wows the audience and entices you to be immersed into the enchanting time warp of Frankenfurter. Truely a show not to be missed! Way to go PV! Was a blast!
Diana Valeria Villamonte took Puerto Vallarta by storm last night. And this is one storm we can hope will never go away. Run do not walk to see her next show at the Red Room next Tuesday at 730. No doubt it will quickly be sold out.
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.
