From Broadway legend and Tony Nominee, Sharon McNight, to the hilarious Emmy-Award winning Leslie Jordan (Will and Grace, The Help) telling his “Stories I Can’t Tell My Mama,” to local singer, Jorge Acosta, The Palm Cabaret has many surprises, musical treats and laughs in store for you this season. Returning favorites like Kim Kuzma, Joanna and Sol Rose, add to the excitement. “You won’t want to miss a single artist this season! The line-up is the best we’ve ever had.” says Mark Rome, founder of the Palm.
Kicking off Thanksgiving Week and the 2012/2013 season, returning for his third consecutive season, is the hilarious (and often touching) vocal impressionist, singer and comedian Mark Alan Smith. Mark Alan opens on Friday, Nov. 16 at 10 pm and runs through Thanksgiving week. “All of Mark Alan’s character voices are live. There is never any lip synch in these shows,” says Tracy Parks, entertainment coordinator for The Palm, “although people constantly ask at the door ‘was that really his voice?’ Yes, it was, I tell them.”
Joining the Thanksgiving line-up with two special shows of her own is the charming and beautiful, Chi Chi Rones (aka Emmy Award Winning writer and singer Peter Garcia). Chi Chi is famous for her Los Muertos beach parachute entrance to Puerto Vallarta last season and her burro serenades down Olas Altas. Her show opens Monday, Nov. 19 at 8pm for two consecutive nights. Chi Chi will be a frequent guest artist at The Palm, making numerous appearances as Chi Chi has decided to take a break from Hollywood and spend the winter with us in her home country of Mexico!
Thanksgiving week also brings back the hilarious Joanna, “The Gal with a Gazillion Voices”, who always keeps the crowd coming back for more. Joanna has many new characters (all live, no lip synch), stories, and stage games in store for her lively audiences in her newly titled show, “Joanna’s Funhouse” which will open Tuesday Nov. 20 and run each Tuesday and Saturday at 10pm thru the season.
Vallarta’s favorite Canadian songstress, the gorgeous Kim Kuzma, is in rehearsals for her new ‘Unplugged with Spanish Guitars’ Show, the sell-out hit of last season which is scheduled to return on Nov. 25 at 7pm and run each Sunday at 7pm. Kim’s new solo show will be at 10pm on Wednesdays thru the season.
Theatre goers can also enjoy all the Act II Entertainment shows scheduled this season including “The Rocky Horror Show” currently playing Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays thru Dec. 29. The Palm is located at Olas Altas 508 in Colonia Emiliano Zapata. The Box Office opens 3 hours before show time. For more information, please click here.
