The Crazy Senoritas are a troupe of female impersonators from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. For eight years, they have drawn sellout crowds of holidaying Canadians to the popular Luna Lounge dinner shows, in nearby Bucerias. Their show features humorous song parodies, warped adult humour and hilarious interactions with members of the audience.
Entertainment columnist Debbie White of the Puerto Vallarta Tribune says “the girls” have put together a very entertaining show that audiences love. The song parodies are hysterical and the costumes and skits are superb. The Crazy Senoritas show has been a “can’t miss” event in the Puerto Vallarta area for years.”
The young actors quickly make audiences forget they are not women, but men disguised as women. Often, people who were hesitant about attending the show have so much fun they return again and again with relatives and friends in tow. The show is not about gays or cross-dressers. It’s just a very funny music and comedy show. But it’s not for kids.
So why have these Mexican entertainers been invited to perform in towns and cities all over western Canada? It’s really no mystery at all. Their main winter audience is mostly western Canadians fleeing the cold and snow who like to see the show again and again.
Besides being fun for their many fans, the tour gives others a chance to enjoy it, without travelling to Mexico. Add the fact that tour promoter Merv Buchanan is a Calgarian and it all makes sense. For those who didn’t get enough of The Crazy Senoritas in Mexico, their western Canada tour is the cure.
Last summer, the troupe performed 27 shows. But the long daily drives and performing night after night without a break took a toll on the performers and crew, so this tour will be limited to 20 stops. Clearly The Crazy Senoritas have a special connection with people in western Canada. And they love performing here.
On Thursday, August 15th, The Crazy Senoritas will perform in Dawson Creek for the third time at a special “tent show” at Boston Pizza. More information is available at (250) 782-8585.
