Join PV columnist Todd Ringness as he hosts a unique journey back in time.
Tales of the Iguana is a fascinating look at the motion picture that transformed Puerto Vallarta from a sleepy seaside village into a thriving international resort.
The response to the "Tales of the Iguana: A Tribute to the Film That Changed a Village" was so great last week, that the Boutique Dinner Theatre has scheduled TWO ENCORE SHOWS.
Enjoy behind the scenes footage and photos, selected scenes, and stories from John Huston's The Night of the Iguana.
This performance features selected key scenes from the film, as well as intriguing behind the scenes footage and photos. Your host will also share some of the legendary stories that surround the shooting of the film in Mismaloya. Guests will also be invited to share some of their related recollections and personal tales of the Iguana.
John Huston’s The Night of the Iguana was adapted from the stage production written by Tennessee Williams. The film stars Richard Burton, Ava Gardner, and Deborah Kerr. The film garnered three Oscar nominations and secured one win for Best Costume Design in 1964.
But it was the steamy behind the scenes action that lured the attention of the media, and subsequently the world. Elizabeth Taylor was enjoying a torrid love affair with Richard Burton during the making of the film. Both Hollywood A-listers were married at the time, and glimpses of the two together in a tropical setting were highly sought after. The result was an irresistible scandal that made worldwide headlines, and focused the international spotlight on a town that would never be the same again.
If you missed the previous presentation of Tales of the Iguana or would like to repeat the experience, join Todd Ringness at the Boutique Theatre on Monday, March 28 and/or Saturday, April 2 where you can enjoy a great dinner at 5:00 pm or opt for the show only at 6:00 pm.
Dinner and the show tickets are $19 USD and include your choice of beef, chicken or vegetarian. Show tickets only are $9 USD.
Tickets can be purchased online thru Vallarta Tickets or stop by Nacho Daddy anytime after 11:00 am.
The newly renovated Boutique Theatre is located above Nacho Daddy at 287 Basilio Badillo in Old Town Vallarta. Cell phone is (322) 728-6878.
