After his sell-out performances in November, Mingo Mexico Productions announces the return of Mark Alan Smith, singing live at Paco’s Ranch, in a six night engagement on February 24, 25, 27 and March 2, 4 and 6 at 8pm each night. “I was so inspired by Vallarta’s warm reception for Mark in November,” says Tracy Parks, producer. “The owners and management at Paco’s Ranch helped us turn the place into a very comfortable cabaret-style theatre and now they’ve agreed to let us do it again for two weeks! We’re thrilled!” Special seating allows customers great views of the stage in comfortable, padded seats, cabaret tables (in the VIP section) and elevated “ranch style” benches. “The state of the art sound system at Paco’s Ranch proved perfect for this very unique show. It is pure magic watching Mark in this room!”
Mark’s live vocal impressions (there is no lip sync in this show) of Cher, Bette Midler, Patti LaBelle, Judy Garland, Liza Manelli, Patsy Cline, Carol Channing, Louis Armstrong and many others leave his standing-room-only audiences begging for more. His stage presence and vocal range make this performer a must see!
For more than 20 years, Mark Alan Smith has traveled the US and other parts of the world selling out theatres, nightclubs and showrooms. He has performed with some of the greatest entertainers of our time including the legendary Eartha Kitt, Tiffany, The Weather Girls, Martha Wash, Thelma Houston and Sir Elton John, to name a few. A documentary about Mark, From a Jack to a Queen, directed by Erik Hayes, ran in short film festivals in 2003, winning an “Audience Favorite Award”.
