Playa del Carmen locals have been loving the city’s new theater! Seats nearly sold out throughout the venue’s opening week, with an average of 95% occupancy. Named Teatro de la Ciudad, this beautiful new performance space will be offering all kinds of shows: dance, concerts, plays and more. Riviera Maya Events even had the opportunity to see the Quintana Roo Symphonic Orchestra performance on the theater’s second night. As locals, it’s clear that we have many memorable evenings to look forward to thanks to the theater.


This weekend, Teatro de la Ciudad is going a step further with an exciting and fun-filled show: a tribute to “The King” Elvis Presley. The show features performing artist Dany Lova, an Elvis impersonator who lives right here in Playa del Carmen! What a perfect way to honor the King of Rock and Roll with true Playa del Carmen style.


The show is scheduled for this Sunday, August 16, a date chosen in honor of the 38th anniversary of Elvis’ death. Now, we’re hearing that tickets for the show sold so quickly this week that Teatro de la Ciudad has decided to add a second show time in order to accommodate everyone. Shows will be Sunday night at 6pm and 8pm. Best of all: the show is FREE! You can pick up your tickets directly at the theater’s ticket counter on Friday 14, Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 from 10am to 6pm, or until they sell out. We recommend picking up your tickets soon, to make sure you can get a seat.

Teatro de la Ciudad will also have two shows this Saturday, August 15: a kids show called “Pipi” at 5pm and 7pm, and a comedic play for teens and adults called “Lentas pero seguras” at 8:30pm. Tickets for both of these shows will be available at the theater’s ticket counter Friday and Saturday from 10am to 6pm. (And yes, both shows are free!)



Teatro de la Ciudad is located on Circuito Chinchorro and Avenida 115, right by Walmart La Cruz. To stay in-the-loop on their upcoming shows, follow Teatro de la Ciudad on Facebook.
