The looming question floating around seemed to be, “How did Act II find these amazing entertainers?” The answer lies with The Red Room’s new manager, Nathan Frye. Nathan and his partner, Allen, live in Las Vegas and paid a visit in May to Lorena and Ray Jon at the Golden Nugget Casino. Nathan asked them if they’d like to join him on a CRAZY ADVENTURE in Puerto Vallarta at The Red Room Cabaret. To his delight, they followed him down to PV, to fulfill Lorena and Ray Jon’s dream of being able to work together and present their original show, Married and Looking.
Well, this dream is off to a happy beginning, because Married and Looking, opened to a sold- out crowd that RAVED that this was one of the best shows ever performed in PV!! Everyone at Act II Stages is thrilled and Lorena and Ray Jon are both grateful and breathing a sigh of relief that they made the right decision to come here and perform. Puerto Vallarta audiences are very lucky to have this fabulous show available to them, twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays at 7:30pm through April. It is recommended that you book your tickets early because it’s likely to sell out all season long!
One thing is crystal clear, Married and Looking is a force to be reckoned with. With traditional Mexican favorites, along with familiar pop songs from Shakira, Christina Aguilera, Linda Ronstadt and more, Lorena Peril and Ray Jon will continue to bring down the house all season at The Red Room with their amazing vocals and musicianship!
Opening Night Reviews:
We’ve heard great pipes in town before, and while her appearance might seem demure, there is nothing small about Peril’s vocal prowess. Paco Ojeda
The very second Lorena Peril bounced onto the stage with a driving beat accompaniment, I fell in love. She possesses an aura which first makes me at home and relaxed, then jumping in excitement watching her perform. The spotlights followed her as she flitted from one side of the stage to the other, strolling among the rows of seats, even up to the balcony. I whispered to myself, this fine lady has joyous expressions! She is self-assured and confident which I knew immediately when song after song was well-performed and joyous to all of us in the audience. Gary R. Beck (see Gary’s full review on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pventertainmentweekly/)
The truth is, nothing I can say, will show the pure excellence of this show. So I just have to say thank you God / universe / higher Power – I now know you want Act II to thrive. Love you Lorena and RJ in our short time together you feel like family. Danny Mininni, founder/owner of Act II Entertainment
Last night Nick and I saw a fantastic show in The Red Room with Lorena Peril and her husband. Both were so good, so different, so sexy and so funny and they sang rock, blues, oldies. Lorena struts across the stage, banters with her hubby and he with her in a sexy funny style that makes you want to lean over and give your own partner a kiss. I will be taking all my friends and family to see this again. This show just can’t get old, it’s too original for that. Do yourself and your friends a favor – see this show! – Get your tickets now before High season is full swing. This is a sell out show folks. Cherry De Lorenzo
