One of Vallarta’s most beloved entertainers, Miss Conception (aka: Kevin Levesque), returns to The Palm in her all-new music and comedy show, ‘Miss Conception Goes To The Movies’, beginning January 25.
Miss Conception, or Miss C as she is affectionately known, is an overnight sensation that has been 16 years in the making. In her very popular one-woman, ALL LIVE singing and costume-bedazzled shows, she always leaves audiences howling with laughter and leaping to their feet with applause!
“The moment I walked out on stage at The Palm Cabaret on my opening night (four years ago), I knew this is what I was meant to do in life.” - Kevin Levesque (Miss Conception)
‘Miss Conception Goes To The Movies’ features many of your favorite characters from cinema past and present. Miss C takes you on an incredible musical journey through many of the characters from movies like The Wizard Of Oz, Mrs. Doubtfire, Austin Powers, Beetlejuice, Pee Wee Herman, Sister Act, and Priscilla Queen of the Desert. She also brings back Chicago, a fan favorite, plus much, much more! With stunning new costume reveals right before your eyes, hilarious comedy, and all the dancing you can handle. Audiences just can’t get enough of Miss Conception’s incredible energy and talent.
In 2012, Miss Conception kicked off her tour in Puerto Vallarta at The Palm, also travelling to the US, Canada, South America and Europe. Miss C has been the opening act for Leslie Jordan and Lorna Luft, as well as having performed with Courtney Act from RuPaul’s Drag Race. Along with having her own show with Second City (Toronto), and being featured on ‘Queer as Folk’ and ‘Degrassi, The Next Generation’, she was the first-ever drag contestant on Wipeout Canada. Last year’s show "The Wonderful World of Miss Conception" was a box office smash hit, winning the award for “Best Costume Surprises" from Vallarta lifestyles Magazine. Her show was also #1 in sales though Vallarta Tickets in 2015.
Originally from Mississauga Ontario Canada and now based in Toronto, a young Kevin Levesque made his stage debut in "Babes in Toyland" as Bobby Shafto at the tender age of 12 with the Mississauga youth theatre. In May of 2000, at the age of 19, Miss Conception was created and brought to life at the Zippez nightclub, after a friend suggested that he should do drag. And the rest is history! Miss Conception Goes To The Movies will play on Mondays and Thursdays beginning January 25th through March 31, all shows at 9:30 pm. Tickets are already selling fast, so best to reserve early.
