Located within easy walking distance from Resorts by Pinnacle, the only Romantic Zone luxury accommodations in Puerto Vallarta, is the city’s premier live theatre complex: Act II Entertainment Stages.
The week launched the theatre’s most ambitious stage production to date, with the opening of the award-winning musical, Avenue Q. One of the longest running shows every on Broadway, Avenue Q won three Tony awards including Best Musical, and spawned Las Vegas and West End productions, two national tours, and a variety of international productions, which now include Puerto Vallarta.
Featuring some incredible local talent, the musical is unusual as the cast consists of three human characters and eleven puppet characters who interact as if human, Sesame Street-style. The puppets are animated and voiced by actor/puppeteers who are present, unconcealed, onstage, but remain “invisible” relative to the storyline. That is, the puppets and human characters completely ignore the puppeteers, and the audience is expected to do so as well.
The laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton, who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that, although the residents seem nice, it’s clear that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. And it should be noted, that although puppets are used in the production, it is most certainly adult themed content, not appropriate for children.
