NAKED BOYS SINGING!
Conceived and directed by Robert Schrock, this endearing laugh out loud musical comedy revue had its New York premier twenty years ago and ran for over twelve years to become the second longest-running musical in off-Broadway history. It stars six actors who sing and dance au-natural, with music direction by Bob Bruneau and Jean-Guy Comeau. The all-Latino ensemble features actors/singers Max Albertos, Mitchell Guzman, Joby Hernandez, Fidel Rebolledo, Renzo Sotelo, and Luis Villanueva.

MISS MARGARIDA’S WAY
‘A tragicomic monologue for an impetuous woman’
For those of you who never learned your lessons well in the first place, school is now in session! Miss Margarida’s Way by Roberto Athayde transports audiences back to eighth grade, where Miss Margarida teaches the real facts of life. This “tragicomic monologue for an impetuous woman” is an interactive, hilarious, and ultimately poignant dark comedy which looks deeply into the heart of power and the futile attempt to create order out of chaos.
Playwright Athayde originally wrote the play in the early 1970s as a critique of the dictatorial government in Brazil, but after it was banned he turned the controversial main character into a totalitarian eighth-grade teacher, playing the role himself in drag. After it was translated into English, it became a huge hit on Broadway, starring Estelle Parsons as the unpredictable and passionate Miss Margarida. For today’s audiences, the play has even more relevance now as we struggle with issues of individual freedom and control over our lives, choosing whether to be passive and obedient children or active participants in our own future.
Making her Puerto Vallarta debut in the title role is Celeste Innocenti, a professional actress (and teacher) from San Diego, California, who is also the Artistic Director of Chronos Theatre Group, a nonprofit theater which explores connections between world cultures and time periods.
This production brings a fresh, fun take on this “old school” gem, crossing boundaries of culture as well as time. Produced by the award-winning Teatro Boa Viagem, this marks the first English language play directed by Ramiro Daniel, who directed several highly successful shows in Spanish at Incanto including Princesas Desesperadas, Ella 2.0, and Que No Se Culpe a Nadie a Mi Muerte.
Media Luna plays intense and high-energy instrumental Latin, flamenco, and Huapango music. Brothers Caleb and Jair Cabrera started playing about 12 years ago and have developed into incredible singer-songwriters and musicians. Their popularity continues to skyrocket both in their hometown of San Miguel de Allende, and here in Puerto Vallarta where they made quite a name for themselves when they debuted at Incanto last spring. They return now for the season. See them on most Thursdays in the theater.
Fresh off his sold-out residency in NYC, Vallarta favorite SPENCER DAY returns to Incanto in mid-Jan. He’s had a stellar year and celebrates the worldwide release of his new album ‘Angel City’.

Piano man Andrew Johns is singer-songwriter and entertainer who has recorded some of the finest piano work this side of Oscar Peterson. He has worked in the corporate events field for the last 25 years for several large well-known companies and made his Incanto debut last spring. He was enthusiastically well-received for his spot-on impersonations and high-energy, crowd-pleasing performances. His incredible piano playing is only rivaled by his spot-on vocals, impersonations, and showmanship.

What People are Saying
Incanto is an enchanting place! They offer the best entertainment in a great setting right on the River Cuale. The terrace is great for summer meals, breakfast, and dinner. The piano bar offers fun activities and great music and there is no cover. You can also have a light dinner if you chose to. The cabaret hosts some of the best talent in Puerto Vallarta for a small cover and you can enjoy food and drinks during the show if you like. It took me a while to discover this treasure but now I am addicted!

Incanto is classy, elegant, friendly and great if you are a woman alone. The terrace restaurant is gorgeous, situated as it is above the river. The upstairs bar, very 30’s speakeasy. Is cool, classy and super friendly. The music is fantastic. There is no cover. My favorite nights are Thursday’s Open Mic and Saturday’s Pearl’s bingo.
The food, breakfast, lunch, dinner, and tapas is definitely all that! Not to be missed. And hey, air conditioned! –
There is something fun for everyone here, ExPats, Nationals, Straight, Gay, Qestioning. It’s a fun place with a great location and AC in the theatre and the bar areas. Two great patio areas on the river. – Bill – Memo
Nowhere else in Vallarta will you find the variety, quality, and accessibility of quality entertainment, than at Incanto. Many of the acts are headliner-quality, while others may be up-and-coming stars of the future, or local acts that you will see nowhere else. As well, there are audience participation events, like bingo and open mike nights. Many of the shows have no cover charge, and the food and drink prices are competitive. Tracy Parks has done a fabulous job bringing the variety show format to Mexico’s favorite town.pejackson94606
