We were very excited to see a show in Bangkok. The theater is very nice and in the middle of the Asiatique area, which has many restaurants and shops. He free drink choices are weak and service is somewhat slow getting it to you. The ladyboys are beautiful, but the song choices were unusual, te sound system off, and it... More

I am afraid to say this was a bad experience and not at all what we expected. It is effectively in a shopping centre. The food is very poor and the restaurant is more like a cafeteria! Dressing up is definitely not required. The theatre area is better and the entertainment is ok. Though it was hard to understand what... More

It is just an average experience for this show. The positive points are beautiful costumes and great stage. However, all the songs are lip synce which is unprofessional

If you were to try and lip-synch and wear funny costumes with a group of friends you'd probably do better than this lot. No skill, no talent, no vocal ability, no rhythm, no idea, no hope The choreographer should hang his/her head in shame. The dancers would clap themselves as hardly anybody was clapping. Shockingly bad

Visited the Calypso Cabaret tonight...and it was a very cool experience! About an hour and 15 minutes...displaying acts performed by ladyboys, men, etc. Performances were primarily very good...a few slower performances that were a little tiring...but that could've been from the few hrs of sleep I had the night before. All in all...a great show. After the show, you have... More

It was a good show. Some of the song choices were a little odd and they went for too long in parts. Would recommend taking smaller notes to tip if you'd like photos with them at the end.

The show was amazing, the dancing and the costumes fantastic. Unfortunately they were not able to mine to the songs they were supposed to be singing so I hope that they will correct this as it takes away from the performances a bit. The theatre was really nice, didn't like the way they seated strangers at your table though. For... More

We heard that Ladyboy cabaret shows are very good entertainment. We heard about those on the islands, but since we had a free evening in Bangkok we decided to go see one there. The upside: beautiful costumes and it was interesting seeing some of the beautiful ladyboys. The downside: the show was very amateur. The "singers" didn't know how to... More
