It’s been a record-breaking season at The Palm Cabaret, with acts that have included established favorites and newcomers alike. Live music & comedy, and two comedic stage productions round out the season, now through April 11.
Vallarta favorite Amy Armstrong, affectionately known as the gal with ‘the voice of an angel, and the mouth of a sailor’, performs both music and comedy in her show ‘Diva Loca’ (Crazy Diva). Amy, best known for her brassy, bawdy comedy and powerful vocals, will be joined by special guests, including popular Argentinian duo Bohemia Viva on guitar and vocals. ‘Diva Loca’ is now playing through March 31. And Luis and Andrea of Bohemia Viva star in their own show, featuring steamy love songs and sizzling Latin rhythms, now playing through April 5. Please see the link below for specific showtimes and online tickets for all shows at The Palm.
Celebrity impersonators Joe Posa and Thirsty Burlington are back by popular demand for a second engagement of ‘An Evening at The Birdcage’. Hilarious comedy and some of the best impersonations of your favorite celebrities outside Las Vegas. Posa hosts the evening as comedy icon Joan Rivers, welcoming guests Liza Minnelli, Barbra Streisand, Judy Garland and more. And Burlington’s Cher is as good as it gets, with a striking resemblance to the superstar and spot-on live vocals. ‘An Evening at The Birdcage’ is now playing through March 21. All shows 9:30 p.m.
This season’s biggest hit is the stage comedy ‘Greater Tuna’, starring Tracy Parks and Chaz Weathers. Now in its third extended run, Tuna has taken literally hundreds of audience members to the third smallest (fictional) town in Texas, where the Lions Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The two actors portray 20 men, women, children, and animals (with 42 costume changes) in this comedy hit about a small town, small minds and big hearts. ‘Greater Tuna’ is now playing through April 1.
Latcho & Andrea; The Blond Gypsies are European recording artists who perform Gypsy Rumba and Spanish Flamenco Guitar music. Both of German descent, Latcho & Andrea take influences from around the world, authentically producing the mysterious and passionate sounds of Gypsy Flamenco music. Their shows have thrilled audiences and their popularity continues to soar. They have two remaining performances on March 21 & 31 at 7:00 p.m.
Luna Rumba, featuring Cheko Ruiz on vocals & guitar and George “Geo” Uhrich on violin, mandolin, flamenco & electric guitars, is a fusion of Gypsy, Latin, Celtic, Flamenco, Middle Eastern and Rock, all spiced up with hot Rumba and Cuban rhythms. From beautiful, romantic ballads to fiery dance pulsations, their music has been judged “world class” in international songwriting competitions. Luna Rumba has one remaining show on March 23 at 7:00 p.m.
The Palm will offer both Spanish and English versions of the comedy stage production of Princesas Desesperadas, or Desperate Princesses, the hit stage play about four Disney princesses’ journey to “happily ever after.” Written by Mexican playwright Tomás Urtusástegui, the comedy follows four Disney princesses a decade after they begin their new lives at the end of the stories we already know. The English version, starring Amy Armstrong and Cesar Daniel Bravo Ramirez (of Equus fame), begins March 24 -27, and the Spanish version will play April 2 -11.
Paco Ojeda will present the final installment of the popular ‘Happy Birthday Tribute Series’, celebrating the life and music of Barbra Streisand on Sunday, March 29 at 7:00 p.m. Ojeda’s presentations are always thorough, informative and very entertaining with a variety of guest performers, including Kim Kuzma and Amy Armstrong. These events almost always sell out, so best to get tickets early.
