The reviews are in and everyone is in love with the cast of Avenue Q…
Produced by the dream team of PV Entertainment, Director Alfonso Lopez and Act II owner Danny Mininni, Avenue Q has Puerto Vallarta saying things like, “Never before has anything like this been done!” Here are a few of the reviews that came in just after the successful opening night, and some that came in during the show!
“WOW! What an amazing show full of fun characters that showed so many levels of professionalism. I was truly amazed at the theme of the show and how each character played off of each so beautifully. Each person gave their puppet their own personality. I swear I saw a few puppets wink at me. If you want to laugh out loud, feel good about something new, then please go see this Amazing Show. One of the funniest shows you’re ever likely to see!" – David Wilhoit, PV resident.
“I saw Avenue Q last night. The performers were amazing! The words I heard most after the show were Amazing! Talent! Broadway! It's a hit! A must see! Best show I have seen in Vallarta!” – Pattie Hirsch, PV Resident.
“Avenue Q is a Certifiable Hit! I have often told Danny that I really don't like "production" opening nights, as so many things can go wrong. I also don't like The Muppets. That said, Avenue Q didn't open last night, it blew the doors off Act II Stages. Kami Desilets, wowed the audience with her Broadway worthy performance as Kate Monster. Vallarta has a new star. Kudos to the entire staff and crew.” – Jim Davis, PV Resident
“Best theatre show/production I have seen in Vallarta!! I just loved it, and the cast just seemed absolutely perfect for each role!!” – Dean Regehr, PV Business man.
"’You're taking me to a puppet show?’ I think that's a lot of people's first impression, but when you see it, it will completely change your mind. BRILLIANT SHOW!” - Dave Pettitt
“I have to say this show was not what I expected. It exceeded my expectations and then some. Treat yourself to an amazing evening with truly fabulous characters.” – Pat Carey
“If you are looking for top notch entertainment, you have to go see Avenue Q, the musical, at Act II Stages. What a talented cast. Amazing show! Broadway entertainment in our local theater. Loved it!” – Even Goldfarb, PV Resident.
“Avenue Q opened last night at Act II. A must see! Funny, thoughtful, and very, very well done. Outstanding performance by the whole troupe! Bravo.” – Mary Zack, Snow Bird
"Everybody currently in Puerto Vallarta and everyone heading down or thinking of heading down, don't miss this hit musical, Avenue Q. Playing now at Act II." - Cindy DuChateau Ramirez, PV Resident
“Amazing production of "Avenue Q" last night at Act II in PV. Run...don’t walk. We all need a laugh lately and this show delivers! Well done.” - Mimi Lindborg Jove-Barnes
“This was the first time I felt like PV has had a really professional, Broadway-level show. Huge compliment! The level of professionalism at Act II has gone up a notch! Congrats!” Barbara, PV Resident
From Gary Beck: "Sometimes one desires a heavy dose of escapism. Forget temporarily who you are and where you are and become absorbed in a funny, fast-paced zany romp with no care in the world. The route to take is viewing Avenue Q with a cast of singers, some with large hand-held puppets who move their mouths to the words and music of the show. Sit back and float away in this adult-themed Broadway show success. Tough times demand release and Act II has supplied such a ethereal path.
The Tony award-winning play was performed on New York's Broadway from 2003 to 2009 to astute theatrically critical audiences. It is a fresh and funny story of a young man searching for his purpose in life and along his way finds love and friendship in the community. It takes place in New York City and the street is Avenue Q, where puppets are friends, an address where struggling inhabitants can afford to live, avoiding the garbage dumpster area outside.
The two acts are fast-paced and with a delightful score. The twenty one songs include "There's a Fine, Fine Line", "If You Were Gay", "Purpose", "The More You Ruv Someone" and "The Internet Is for Porn". One can feel a broad nod to the ground-breaking "Sesame Street". The result is a fond, funny and touching embrace with the cast displaying much heart.
It is directed by Act II Entertainment's Musical Director, Alfonso Lopez and features a talented local cast including himself: Kami Desilets, Stephanie Ramírez, Dwayne Carrier, Maria Desilets, Eli Estrada, Marsha Ross, Bert Ramírez and Pablo Rodríguez. Kami, Stephanie and Eli stood out with their strong and clear voices."
