A Musical Tribute to Whitney Houston, featuring PV’s #1 Star, Diana Villamonte
OPENING NIGHT – Friday, November 2, 2018 – 7:30 pm
CONTINUING SHOWS: Every Friday (thru May) 2018
Diana Villamonte, Panamian beauty and TV Star has taken Puerto Vallarta by storm! Last year, she presented the #1 show in Puerto Vallarta,“Motown and Beyond!” Her show sold out every night and was such a smashing success that, mid-season, we asked her to create a Tina Turner Tribute show! That, too, was a hit, selling out every week, and breaking all box office records!
This year, we are thrilled to announce that Diana, along with director Alfonso Lopez, has created yet ANOTHER sensational hit show, “I Will Always Love You,” a musical tribute to Whitney Houston! Diana, with her powerhouse voice and infectious personality, is the perfect singer to take on the iconic Whitney (her lifelong inspiration). The highlight of Diana’s show last year was when she previewed some of her Whitney Houston songs, often having most audience members in tears. Diana blew the audience away, and her fans begged for a whole show of Whitney’s songs!
This tiny little gal with the powerhouse voice and infectious personality sings with such vocal power, precision and exceptional range that she has become the queen of the power ballad. Her passion and commitment to her music, as well as her rich, belting notes and electrifying top register bring tears to your eyes.
Diana entered her first singing competition at age 10 and also performed in several local plays. In 2014, she won the Karaoke World Championship in Stockholm, Sweden, and was asked to participate in the Tokyo International Karaoke competition for the following two years. She sang as the “guest artist” at the competition in Singapore in 2015. Then, as a result of the notoriety she received after her karaoke successes, she was asked to star in a reality show on television in Central America. She now has a huge television fanbase! Act II has just produced Diana’s first CD, based on the music from her show, Motown and Beyond. Look for the CD to be available on the website at act2pv.com, and at the merchandise counter at Act II Stages!
It is rare to find talent such as hers! Diana is truly one of the most talented performers that has ever crossed our stage! She is destined to be a huge star! We are so proud of her and urge you to join the thousands of people who have seen her show. You will never forget her.
“You have got to experience this amazing young singers show! What a voice! When she sings “I Who Have Nothing,” it will rip your heart out. From Diana Ross to Whitney Houston you will be on your feet cheering. Don’t miss her! – Chris B, Trip Advisor, 12/17/17

Diana Villamonte at Act 2 … SIMPLY INCREDIBLE!!
If you haven’t gone to Act 2 to see Diana Villamonte in either of her tribute shows, -Tina Turner and/or -Motown and Beyond, you simply MUST put them on your list of things to do while visiting Puerto Vallarta!! We attended the Tina Turner tribute show last week and were blown away by Diana’s talent and energy. We didn’t want the show to end!! So, we immediately bought tickets for this week’s performance of Motown and Beyond. We were not disappointed!! There are few performers that can rival the likes of Diana Ross, Whitney Houston, Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin … but Diana can give them ALL a run for their money!! Puerto Vallarta is fortunate to have such a wonderful venue and the ability to attract such amazing talent!!
