Danny Mininni takes you back to the play that started the entertainment scene in Puerto Vallarta… The Foreigner!  It is a hilarious, two-act comedy, written by American playwright Larry Shue. It is actually the first show that was directed by Danny Mininni (at the Boutique Theater) when he came to Puerto Vallarta 10 years ago, which performed to standing-room only houses!  “It was The Foreigner’s success that made me realize that great entertainment in PV could be viable!” says Danny Mininni.  “What better way to celebrate Act II’s 5th anniversary than to bring back the play that started it all!”

The Foreigner is the story of two guests, Charlie Baker and Staff Sergeant Froggy LeSueur, at a resort-style fishing lodge in rural Georgia.  Charlie is depressed because his beloved wife may be dying. To help his friend, Froggy tells Betty Meeks, who owns the lodge, that Charlie is the native of an exotic country who does not understand a word of English. Betty, who has never traveled, is delighted to cater for a stranger who is “as foreign as the day is long.” Before long, things start to go awry, as Charlie finds himself privy to assorted secrets and scandals freely discussed in front of him by the other visitors. Charlie must “learn” English quickly and think on his feet if he wants to save the lodge and his new friends.

The Foreigner stars Alex McLachlan as the charming and adorable Charlie (The Foreigner). “I never thought I’d meet another actor GOOD ENOUGH to play the part of Charlie until I met Alex,” says director, Danny Mininni.   This show also features Act II veteran actress, Cherry DeLorenzo, the only actress that has been in an Act II production every season since its inception. It is also starring Maria Rose, Shawn Morgan, Branden Hayes, Al Carswell, and Ocean Oleson.

”The Foreigner” is a fantasy of good and evil, resulting in side-splitting laughter.  This hysterical romp is filled with slapstick, and surprisingly, romantic comedy! It has enough warmth and truth in it that it is not only funny, but also often moving. This is solid entertainment and one of the funniest shows you will ever see!
