Quirky people are, indeed, fascinating. Just add incredible talent, energy and humor to that formula and what you have is Puerto Vallarta’s newest arrival, Sharron Matthews. With a fabulous singing voice, a slightly irreverent sense of humor and a theatrical, flamboyant wit, Sharron Matthews is a wonderful new addition to Puerto Vallarta’s entertainment scene this season. Jokingly described as ‘the love child of Jack Black and Bette Midler,’ Sharron brings her two different ‘Solid Gold Hits’ shows to The Red Room, Act II Stages from January 5th to the 30th. Her cabaret shows include songs by artists such as Lady Gaga, Guns ‘N Roses, Radiohead, Beyoncé, Queen and more. In between songs she channels thoughts, experiences and wisdom that is reminiscent of a Robin Williams style of humor.
Sharron has been playing to sold-out audiences across Canada, the United States, London and South Africa. Reviewed as ‘One of the Best Stage Performers’ in Canada, she has also been featured in block buster movies like The Music Man, Hairspray, Mean Girls, and Cinderella Man. As a stage actress, she has had theatrical roles in Les Miserable, Showboat, Beauty and the Beast, Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and the Wizard of Oz. For the past two years she has been one of the stars of the television program, ‘Canada Sings.’ She shines as a vocal coach one minute and as therapist to aspiring artists the next!
Now Magazine Canada describes Sharron Matthews in this way. “She can rivet you with her great pipes and then touch you with the tenderness of her interpretations Then make you laugh till you pee.” The Toronto Star enthusiastically declares that “Sharon delivers jaw-dropping vocals, pop-culture punches and hi-melody mash-ups in a one-of-a-kind concert experience that defies age and gender barriers.” NiteLife Exchange, New York City has declared that ‘SHARRON MATTHEWS IS THE MOST EXCITING THING TO HAVE HAPPENED TO CABARET SINCE BETTE MIDLER!’
The awards and honors for Sharron Matthews’ performances are many, but what is most important is the fact that she consistently delivers a highly entertaining, soul-searching, original performance each time she takes the stage. As Cabaret-Artist-In-Residence at Buddies in Bad Times Theater in Toronto and Associate Artist in Acting Up Stage in Toronto, we thank the city of Toronto for sharing this very funny and talented woman with Puerto Vallarta for the month of January. This is a show you won’t want to miss! Tickets can be purchased at vallartatickets.com or at Act II Stages box office at Insurgentes 330 in Zona Romantica, PV.
