There are several venues in Puerto Vallarta to see great drag theater. With each passing year, we find these shows more professional. That might mean more expensive but for $250 pesos, you won’t find anything this good on the north side of the border.
With high season just around the corner, some favorite acts will be returning to Puerto Vallarta. Miss Conception is scheduled to open her International Tour from January to March performs at The Palm on Olas Altas this coming season. The amazing costume changes and her humor will keep you on your toes, and stunned by her enormous talent.
Joanna also performs at The Palm in Puerto Vallarta and has an impressive vocal range. She does her own singing and is also hysterically funny. Her impressions are knockout and she nails Cher, Adele, Streisand and several others. Imports, such as Dame Edna from England and Mama Tits from Seattle are also highly recommended, though perhaps a bit raunchier than some of the others.
Dueling Queens is a show to catch at Act ll on Basilio Badillo. Five hilarious actors will have you rolling with laughter and jumping with glee! Their show is for all ages; young, old, gay or straight, you will laugh yourself silly. Other quirky queens to catch are Chi Chi Rones (both she and Joanna are part of the Dueling Queens), Sutton Lee Seymour, Hedda Lettuce, all witty and fun. They all have very different acts and you’d be sorry to miss any of them. Mama Tits will take you on a journey of her own personal life that will have you screaming with laughter and trickling a little tear, as well.
There are other drag shows in Puerto Vallarta that aren’t necessarily family friendly but they’re a lot of fun, especially for the LGBT crowd. Bar Fiesta on Lazaro Cardenas has English lip-syncing in the front of the club and Spanish in the back. It’s not professional but it’s definitely engaging and amusing.
We’ve been told the Luna Lounge in Bucerias is also very good. Grab an Uber or Taxi and take the trip north for some extra special fun. There are lots of great dinner places in Bucerias, too, so you can make a night of it.
Check out the local papers for times and locations and book tickets without delay once you arrive in Puerto Vallarta. Cassandra Shaw’s Jewelry on Basilio Badillo pins up posters of all the local acts and they also sell tickets for certain events and performances.
Que es cómo es.
