Several returning Vallarta favorites are filling Incanto’s high season lineup, including the smooth vocals of singer-songwriter Spencer Day, popular singing string quartet Well-Strung, and comedienne Shawn Pelofsky, just to name a few.
Comedienne/actor Shawn Pelofsky’s famous tagline ‘Stretch it out!’ could be a metaphor for her highly successful tenure in Vallarta over the past several years, and it’s the title of her all-new comedy special just released on DVD. A crowd favorite in Los Angeles at the world-famous Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip, Showtime, and Atlantis cruises, Shawn’s observational comedy is both edgy and hilarious! She’ll spice up the holiday season at Incanto this December. Visit Incanto’s all-new website coming soon for more information.
Singer and composer Spencer Day has had a stellar year and is celebrating the success of the worldwide release of his new album ‘Angel City’. Having made quite a name for himself in Vallarta, he’s now well-known around the world for his heartfelt, clever lyrics, affable personality, and velvety smooth vocals. Spencer returns to Incanto in early January. Tickets on sale soon.
Well-Strung’s enormous talent for melding classical strings with pop hits and vocals returns to the Incanto stage in February. Their popularity is skyrocketing internationally and their just released album, ‘Under the covers’, is already climbing the charts. Tickets will go fast. Watch for them, as well as more information about Incanto’s upcoming high season lineup coming soon.
Local musicologist Paco Ojeda takes us back to the early 1920s in his next lecture, ‘Talkies’, when the first feature-length motion pictures with music and sound were released. “Music and sound in film is something we take for granted,” commented Ojeda. “By looking at clips from timeless films and their music scores, we will gain a deeper appreciation for the way film composers enhance the moviegoing experience.” Oct. 11 at 7:30pm. Paco also hosts Dinner & Movie on Tuesdays at 7pm in the air-conditioned theater. Watch many classic films on their giant screen while enjoying a special dinner menu.
