“WALK LIKE A MAN”  (Vallarta’s #1 show)
Paul Fracassi is the reincarnation of Frankie Valli!

2 week engagement only.  March 15, 17, 18, 20, 22, 25, 27, 29 - 5:00 pm


PAUL FRACASSI, one of Act II’s most popular and talented artists, returns to Act II for his fourth consecutive year, after a record-breaking season last year!   His show, “Walk Like a Man,” is the #1 show in Puerto Vallarta!  It has sold more tickets than any other show in Vallarta history!  Always the consummate performer, Paul bounds onstage with tons of energy and shimmies his away around the whole stage.  He has a powerful, well-trained voice that reaches soaring high notes that send chills and thrills throughout his audience.  His incredible vocal range has been compared to the great crooners of the American songbook, and especially the high vocal range of Frankie Valli.   It is no wonder that this artist chose to present the music of The Four Seasons for this show, including Dawn, Rag Doll and Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You, and Walk Like a Man.  He also handles the Frankie Valli songs as if Frankie Valli himself was on stage singing them in his early years on the Ed Sullivan show!

This “Jersey Kid” from Toronto, Canada, managed to create a big fuss up in Canada as a finalist in “Canadian Idol.” Shortly thereafter, he created a “big fuss” in Puerto Vallarta, too, as we fell in love with this wonderful, new singing sensation!  He has become an international star and  is much in demand in Mexico, Canada, the U.S., and Europe.  Tickets sell out quickly.  Get yours today!

Continuing Shows at Act II:

◼“The Foreigner,” directed by Founding Partner, Danny Mininni
A Comedy by Larry Shue

Produced by Act II Entertainment

WEDNESDAYS  - 7:00 pm  


The Foreigner is the story of two guests, Charlie Baker and Staff Sergeant Froggy LeSueur, at a resort-style fishing lodge in rural Georgia.  Charlie is depressed because his beloved wife may be dying. To help his friend, Froggy tells Betty Meeks, who owns the lodge, that Charlie is the native of an exotic country who does not understand a word of English. Betty, who has never traveled, is delighted to cater to a stranger who is "as foreign as the day is long." Before long, things start to go awry, as Charlie finds himself privy to assorted secrets and scandals freely discussed in front of him by the other visitors. Charlie must “learn” English quickly and think on his feet if he wants to save the lodge and his new friends.

The Foreigner stars Alex McLauchlan as the charming and adorable Charlie (the Foreigner). “I never thought I’d meet another actor GOOD ENOUGH to play the part of Charlie until I met Alex,” says director, Danny Mininni.  This show also features Act II veteran actress, Cherry DeLorenzo, the only actress that has been in an Act II production every season since its inception. Also starring Maria Rose, Shawn Morgan, Branden Hayes, Al Carswell, and Andrew Sands.


'The Foreigner' is a fantasy of good and evil resulting in side-splitting laughter. This hysterical romp is filled with slapstick and surprisingly, romantic comedy! It has enough warmth and truth in it that it is not only funny, but also often moving. This is solid entertainment and one of the funniest shows you will ever see!

Best Play Ever!
If you are looking for a fabulous night out go see The Foreigner on Wednesday nights at 7 pm or Saturdays and you can thank me later!!! It was full of surprises. Lots of fun!  ~wheelerart, 1/12/19

“... tons of laughs for a sold out audience. Very entertaining and very well cast with flawless performances from all the actors Congratulations Danny on your direction Capabilities!” ~William Larkin, 1/6/18


Total raves from attendees leaving the theater from everyone I talked with. Best Ever?” 
~Gary Beck 1/6/18

“GO SEE THE FOREIGNER at Stages, Act II! It is brilliant! I saw Danny Mininni´s production 7 years ago and thought... this can´t get any better!¨ Well it was as good, and some of the characters even better in my opinion. Cherry DeLorenzo as Betty Meeks did not lose a beat! Timing by all concerned was perfect and hard to do on an opening night! Maria Rose can not only sing but act. Perfect person for Catherine. The Foreigner, Alex McLauchlan was so endearing and clever and PERFECT. Brendan Hayes played a wonderful irreverent Reverend and the two tall guys, Allan Carswell and Andrew Sands played their parts brilliantly as well. Shawn Morgan who played Owen Musser was cast perfectly as the angry Clan member. Thanks for another entertaining evening at Act II.” ~Sharon Baughman-White 1/6/18

“The Foreigner opened last night with rave reviews. Couldn’t agree more. Another over the top production by Danny Mininni, Alfonso López and all the performers and staff at Act II Entertainment. Make it a point during your time in Puerto Vallarta to see this play! Well done!” ~Cindy DuChateau Ramirez 1/6/18

“A tour de force. A comedic drama at its best. ACT II showcases the exceptional talent of Vallarta and delivers a hilarious show with an important message. It shows that drama can be forcefully delivered in Vallarta. The show deserves to be sold out every night. Bravo to all!” ~Tom Bernes 1/6/18

Act II Entertainment Stages has Done It Again. Where else can you go see a "Play" with such Fine Acting, Great Characters and a Haunting Story Line. "The Foreigner" opening night was a Hit Run Away. Perfectly executed by all the Actors and Directed by Danny Mininni, it is a Show of Shows. Every Actor was the Star. The Set was Amazing and the sound and lighting was Spot on. Lots of Laughs but lots to ponder as the show unfolds.” ~David Wilhoit 1/6/18

“It was the best! What a playwright, what direction, and what talent. A winner all round.” ~Heather Thomson 1/6/18

“Yet another blockbuster!! Amazing how you all do this for us! Spectacular!!!” ~Francine Peters 1/6/19

“The actors worked together seamlessly in spite of the incredibly lengthy lines they had to memorize. My hat is off to every performer in the cast. Brilliant!”  ~Dave Mohr 1/6/18

“What a great show! All-around amazing work! Congrats to all!” ~Derek Carkner 1/6/18

(#1 Main Stage Musical in the past 6 seasons)

A Cult Musical/Horror Comedy  

Produced by Act II Entertainment

Directed by Alfonso López

Extended by popular demand…now on Mondays & Thursdays - 7:00 pm

One of Off-Broadway’s most popular cult musicals, Little Shop of Horrors is the hilarious tale of a down-and-out Skid Row floral assistant, the girl he loved, and a strange new, man-eating plant threatening to tear their world apart.  This cult classic was one of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows and has become a household name thanks to a highly successful film version and a fantastic musical score!  For the past 30 years, people just can’t get the catchy music out of their heads!  

Directed by Alfonso López, the uber-talented director of “Rocky Horror” last year, this beloved horror/comedy/rock/musical is another first-class production at Act II and brings back the sounds and ambiance of the rock ‘n’ roll era.  It stars many of your favorite Act II actors, plus some wonderful new faces, including Maria Rose, Joey Martinez, Alex McLauchlan, Andrew Sands, Shawn Morgan, Eli Estrada, Sasha del Oceano, and Ximena Peña Esparza.   It also features the return of Act II Managing Partner, Danny Mininni, to the stage, with his portrayal of the crotchety and hilarious “Mr. Mushnik.”  With its delightful cast and toe-tapping music, Little Shop of Horrors is a must-see this season!  


TripAdvisor ★★★★★
Very good entertainment!  We saw Little Shop of Horrors tonight at Act II. The actors were very talented, the singing was very good and they did an excellent job with the stage and sets. It is great that PV has Act II available to offer some alternative nightlife entertainment. The theater is small and very comfortable and offers an intimate setting. They will serve drinks while the performance continues. I highly recommend going. They have many performances to choose from. ~fossr50, Tomahawk, WI 1/3/19

“Just saw ACT ll’s Little Shop of Horrors. I didn’t expect the level of professionalism on display, from the sets, acting, singing to the choreography. ACT ll May be a small venue but they definitely put on big shows. Yes it may be a cliche but run don’t walk and get tickets for this musical. If your plans are for coming down later in the season go online lots of great shows to come. As a plus they have a great patio to enjoy a drink prior to the show.” -rickdj5364YT, Fresno, TripAdvisor - 11/5/18

I Got Rhythm features beautiful harmonies, duets, solos, and mini vignettes of song and dance. Each song sparkles with pure Americana from the 20’s and 30’s. Come and take a step back in time as you enjoy this art-deco themed show starring Act II partner, Alfonso López, along with MaryJo Nelson, Sasha del Océano, Marsha Ward Ross, Alberto Ponce, and Andrew Sands.

I love Act II! On my recent trip to Puerto Vallarta a friend told me about the shows there. I went to the Gershwin review called "I Got Rhythm,” and it was fabulous! The singing, the dancing, and the energy was incredible. We were all singing along to all the songs we knew. I had so much fun that night that I decided to go again. This time I saw “Chicago.” What a marvelous show!...” ~dancerjane, 2/13/19

I am happy to see that they are expanding the number and types of shows while continuing to bring PV quality live entertainment. The service is excellent and the setting fun. Go early and listen to the music in the bar. And yes, it is for everyone...please don't feel it is only a gay venue...don't miss it!” - Connie, Long Beach 11/16/18

myself am only 21,” said Schatz. “I’m sure the group will continue to grow when I stop

touring, as I’m going to keep writing for them and desperately need the royalties.”

Marken as Winnie, have served up a feast of music and comedy to audiences at performing

arts centers, music venues and comedy festivals throughout the U.S. and internationally. Their

ABBA and its flamboyant costumes and catchy music,  is considered to be one of the top musical groups in history, having sold over 500 million albums!  Elton John first became famous for his oversize glasses and outrageous outfits, but his enduring popularity and incredible talent have earned him five Grammy awards, induction into the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame, and sales of over 300 million albums!  Together, these two acts epitomized the soft rock/pop musical sounds that became hugely popular in the 70’s, and is still loved around the world today.

Couldn't recommend them more. What an enthusiastic and joyful pair of singers! Perfect for the rainy day. The show was good for all ages. Prompt, helpful waitstaff as well.  Just be sure to arrive about an hour before the show to enjoy drinks in the lounge and to maximize your chances of sitting together as a group during the show.”  ~LinBoston 12/31/18

Still the best!  This was our fourth visit to see US TWO. They have added a keyboard to their band of amazingly talented performers. These two put on a show that is remarkable for a venue like this. They have packed the house at each of the performances we have attended. The show they put on is warm, funny and remarkably GOOD! Don’t miss this one. You will be glad you went!” - MJPmd, 1/14/19
