They stumble upon the castle of Dr. Frank-n-Furter, a mad transvestite scientist, who is having a party to celebrate the unveiling of his newest creation, Rocky Horror, a man-made Adonis that will give absolute pleasure! Rocky Horror is a powerful musical that sparked a cult movement. It is the perfect show for Puerto Vallarta because it brings together people from all walks of life, exploring freedom from normal heterosexuality and embracing androgyny and queer sexual awakenings.

Some Enchanted Evening

more info

More so than any composer and lyricist who have written for the stage, the songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein have become an integral part of our everyday lives. We sing them in the shower, we dance to them in ballrooms, we hear them on the radio and in clubs and, yes, in elevators and supermarkets too. We still thrill to them on the live stage in their respective shows, and we teach them to our children.

7:00 pm   Every Monday
until 26 March   @ Act II Stages

This stunning collection of compositions places five performers in a theatrical setting -- first "backstage," where the songs are sung as personal interplay, and then "onstage." While offering the performers an opportunity to explore the songs within their own styles and sensibilities, it offers the audience a glorious parade of genuine hits.
Live Music
California Dreaming

more info

This show features LIVE MUSIC, with singers in the characters of the original band members, Cass Elliot, Michelle Phillips, John Phillips and Denny Doherty.

7:00 pm   Every Friday
until 30 March   @ Act II Stages

This music shaped a generation and mirrored the California music scene from Laurel Canyon to the "flower children" of San Francisco. It reflected the "make love not war," message of the peace movement. Rhonda Padmos and Don Pope are well-known Puerto Vallarta musicians who are producing this exciting tribute show. They are Canadians who arrived in PV in the 80's as guest musicians on THE LOVE BOAT. Currently, in their 5th season at ACT II with shows like Come Together (Beatles tribute), Rumors (Fleetwood Mac tribute), The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Sordid Lives, A Chorus Line and Tapestry (music of Carole King), Rhonda and Don are thrilled to bring this exciting show back to Act II!
