“sit back n hv a good laugh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

sure, most of the reviewers r right, poor dance sync, laughin, lack of energy during dance...

but, jus sit back and enjoy the show.
show las for an hour

i watched the 8.30pm show, and when the crowd from the earlier show came out, i was glad i watched the later show.
less crowd at the 8.30pm show means u get to sit closer in front.

i had no expectation of sort, so i relaxed and had a good laugh.
it amazed me how some lady-boys look better than ladies.
my wife agreed with me on this.
my heart frozen and i was in fear when the lady boys came down stage to 'find' their husband as part of the show...LoL...ahhh...if only they were 1 of the few who look attractive...lol

location is remote, i had a van which drove me there.

is it worth a watch, probably yes.
is it worth another watch, probably not...

“Really poor cabaret, if you may call it a cabaret”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

The artists don't know what they are doing. Most out of their place n looking to each other for guidance. Really poor show.
Absolute lack of energy. Good place to sleep if ur bored

“Was it really a show? or a joke??”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

We originally plan to watch Calypso but we are told that they are in renovation or relocation or something. Our ticket was arrange by our travel agent in our hotel. The place of their Show is a 1 hour drive (minus the terrible traffic!) from MBK shopping center were we spend out excess time. The Place was quite remote, no shopping center nearby or train Station.so you have to take a taxi to go there.

Most of expectators are tourist, coming in by large buses and groups.. for "VIP" tickets you get free drinks and popcorn w/c is OK. Costumes and stage set up is WOW! you can feel that its a show.... but the performance?? WTF?? the male dancers is like drunk?? they cant dance for their freaking life!! they're laughing while dancing as if its a joke. synchronization was terrible!!

The Lady boys is mostly the "star" of each production, and her back up dancers are more like boys who dress up. again terrible dancing...The Lip syncing was bad and theres more room for improvement! some segments they interact with audience(MALE) w/c is a good laugh...its a disapointment that the show is terrible... they waste their costumes and stage for bad performance. after the show the performers will go outside first after the audience. they will wait for you at the lobby and FORCEFULLY ask for photo with them and DEMANDS for money!!!! WTH??? A BAd performances and we get this??? i saw some audience member not happy about the photo opp.. they will grab your hands and ask for money!!!

Theres a better option than watching this show! Try to watch Calypso i think theyre better...

“Experience Thai Ladyboys in a non sleazy way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

A great show well worth a look. Very classy and performed in a lovely theater. Reminded me of the old movie theaters when I was a kid.
