One of Puerto Vallarta’s stars in the theater scene since 2001 has been the very talented, Mikki Prost. Having written articles this season about many of Puerto Vallarta’s entertainers, I’ve wanted to catch one of Mikki’s shows. Finally last Saturday night at Luna Lounge in Bucerias, I was able to hear Mikki perform songs from her Patsy Cline show. Not only were Mikki’s vocals superb, but the costumes and choreography reflected the expertise of this veteran of musical theater.
I was so impressed that I wanted to recommend Mikki Prost’s final show of the season, this Tuesday, March 31st at The Boutique Theatre above Nacho Daddy’s on Basilio Badillo #287 in the Zona Romantica. If you like the music of Patsy Cline and want to see it performed by a professional actor, singer and dancer, then this is a show you won’t want to miss!
I’d like to back up a little and give readers some history about Mikki Prost. At the age of 3, her parents found her walking on her toes and by the next year she was a ballet student. By the age of 5 she was performing on stage and hooked on the theater.
In 2001, Mikki began performing in theater productions in Puerto Vallarta. Her first role was that of Clairee in the play Steel Magnolias. This production was so popular that it was brought back a few years later and Mikki once again reprised the role of Clairee.
The following year, Mikki performed as a solo artist for the first time in the production, Come to the Cabaret. She was featured on the front cover of Vallarta Today for that performance.
Since moving to Puerto Vallarta, Mikki has participated in 25 musicals and 11 plays. One of her musicals, Always Patsy Cline had 26 consecutive sold-out shows.
In 2007, she wrote and produced the show Fever that was a mix of show tunes. Fever was Mikki’s first 1 woman show.
In 2009, Mikki acted in Supreme Dream, a one woman play based on the life of a former backup singer for the musical group, The Supremes.
During 2011 and 2012, Mikki produced, acted and sang in the show, A Tribute to Patsy Cline. This show was also a huge success and ran for two seasons.
In 2012 and 2013, Mikki Prost produced two more shows. The first was Remembering Patsy and was performed on March 5, 2013, the 50th anniversary of Patsy Cline’s death. This show was sold-out in advance and an encore performance was offered on April 16th.
The second show was Shades of The Blues which featured the history of the blues and background stories about each song. This show has been enthusiastically received by audiences and continues to be a popular show.
In 2014 and 2015, Mikki Prost has continued to perform Shades of The Blues along with her shows featuring the life and music of Patsy Cline. Two of these shows are Forever Patsy Cline and Still Cray for Patsy Cline.
So don’t miss Mikki Prost’s (held over again) Patsy Cline show this Tuesday at The Boutique Theatre. This dinner show starts at 5 pm. For more information go to boutiquetheatre.org or call tel # 044-322-192-4616.
“…if one’s eyes were closed, clear images of Patsy appeared singing from the stage to all attendees.” (quote by Gary Beck, Puerto Vallarta Food and Entertainment Reviewer)
