The Rocky Horror Show is an extremely popular, blockbuster musical comedy that pays humorous tribute to the science fiction and horror B movies of the 1940’s through the 1970’s. It tells the story of Brad Majors and Janet Weiss, a straight-laced, newly engaged couple, that have a breakdown and get caught in a terrible storm. They stumble upon the castle of Dr. Frank-n-Furter, a mad transvestite scientist, who is having a party to celebrate the unveiling of his newest creation, Rocky Horror, a man-made Adonis that will give absolute pleasure! Rocky Horror is a powerful musical that sparked a cult movement. It is the perfect show for Puerto Vallarta because it brings together people from all walks of life, exploring freedom from normal heterosexuality and embracing androgyny and queer sexual awakenings.


UsTwo: “NEW VOICES, OLD BEATS”
Featuring the fabulous musical duo, Noemi Plasencia and Daniel Celis

RED ROOM OPENING NIGHT ACT AND 5th SEASON CELEBRATION!
(Plus Danny’s Birthday party)
Thursday, November 2 – Party at 6:00 PM / show at 7:30

Shows Every Thursday Night in the Red Room – 7:30 pm!

During this past summer, UsTwo performed to a packed house in Act II’s sensational hit series, “Spotlight on Vallarta.” Rumor had gotten around that this was a show NOT to be missed! This smashing duo with the soft, sexy easy beat and harmonious vocals certainly proved that rumor to be true! The audience went wild and fell in love with Noemi and Daniel! The moment they opened their mouths, the audience was mesmerized! This magical duo is definitely the SMASH HIT OF THE SEASON! The consensus of opinion was that they MUST bring their show back for the main season!

Although new to Act II, UsTwo is definitely NOT new to the music scene. The beautiful Noemi Plasencia is from Guadalajara and studied at the Conservatory of Music at the University of Guadalajara. Daniel Celis is from Cordoba, Veracruz and studied at the Conservatory of Music in Querétaro. Both Noemi and Daniel sang in various bands around Mexico, but in 2012, Noemi and Daniel discovered each other and melded their incredible talents, creating an amazing chemistry together!

UsTwo has performed in many parts of Mexico, as well as the United States and Canada. They specialize in singing remastered arrangements of classic favorites and are much in demand at many of the major hotels in Puerto Vallarta, including the Sheraton, Garza Blanca, Vidanta, the Marriott, Four Seasons, and more! People are raving about the absolute beauty of their sound. The reviews are incredible and UsTwo is the talk of the town!

“They will totally entertain you with their music and their wit.” – JIM DAVIS

“This is a Must, Must, Must See!!!” – GARY BECK

“This is a MUST NOT MISS show that will blow you away.”– DAVID WILHOIT


“THINGS YOU SHOULDN’T SAY”
A Political Satire featuring THE KINSEY SICKS!

OPENING NIGHT – Friday, November 3 – 7:00 pm

Show Dates (Main Stage – 7:00 pm)
November 3, 6, 8, 10, 13, 15, 17, 20

We are so thrilled to welcome back (for their third year), the world-acclaimed Dragapella ®️ “Beautyshop” Quartet, THE KINSEY SICKS! (If you love Donald Trump, you’ll hate this show!) This deliciously R-rated group will present an updated, “ribald, ridiculous, raunchy romp” of current political comedy… in its own inimitable style! The show is a cornucopia of bawdy, riotous, good fun, paired with emotional gut punches in equal measure. Their jokes are as tight as their harmonies, and the parody songs that were written and performed by the group are as clever as they are funny!

Having been together for more than 20 years, the KINSEY SICKS have performed around the world. This is the remarkable true story of four friends who had a life-changing epiphany at a 1994 Bette Midler concert, and formed The Kinsey Sicks in an effort to find joy in the darkest days of the AIDS crisis. They have graduated to venues in most of the US states, Canada, Australia, Europe and Mexico, and their award-winning, a cappella singing, sharp satire (and over-the-top drag) have earned them a diverse and devoted following all over the world!

This show is hilarious and mesmerizing! What makes it unique is the witty and superbly written satire that is accompanied by exquisite four-part harmonies. The Sicks’ vocal skills and onstage chemistry make this one of the most provocative evenings of political theater ever! So, come and join America’s Favorite Dragapella ®️ Beautyshop Quartet as they lead us all into resisting new dark times with their special brand of laughter, integrity, and heroically high hair! In their unforgettable new musical extravanganza exploring Trumpism, racism, AIDS, extreme macramé, oblong objects, and (of course) Bette Midler, there are some things you shouldn’t say, but you shouldn’t miss “THE KINSEY SICKS!”

Diana has quite an extensive background as an artist. As a child, she studied music, ballet, modeling, and theater! She entered her first singing competition at age 10 and also performed in several local plays. In 2014, she won the Karaoke World Championship in Stockholm, Sweden, and was asked to participate in the Tokyo International Karaoke competition for the following two years. She sang as the “guest artist” at the competition in Singapore in 2015. Then, as a result of the notoriety she received after her karaoke successes, she was asked to star in a reality show on television in Central America. She now has a huge television following! Diana was also a member of a band called “The Players” for two years at the Hard Rock Hotel Panama, has produced two singles, “Te Amo” and “Running,” (available on YouTube), and just finished a stint as one of the main singers at the fabulous Rhythms of the Night!

Diana gained our attention as she competed in the Voice of Vallarta 2017! Each week, she demonstrated her amazing versatility as a musician, wowing the audience and judges with her singing ability and incredible stage presence, and she received perfect 10’s almost every week! This young lady is one of the most talented people to have crossed our stage, and she is destined to be a huge star! We are beyond excited that Diana has agreed to perform here at Act II, so we invite you to come to her next show on Thursday, August 5. One day, you will be able to say, “I remember when…..”

Obviously, this was a very good decision!
