We were originally going to go to the Simon Show, but like many other were told by the tour operator that this was better. Boy did we get a surprise!!!! The costumes are torn and falling apart in places. Even their shoes were scuffed and old. Some boys were dancing in workmans boots! I don't know how long these 'ladies' have been doing this show, but they certainly looked like they wished to be somewhere else. They were talking to each other on stage whilst performing. They either had no idea on the choreography, or just couldn't be bothered with the steps. It was really unbelievable, but most of the singers did not even know the words to lypsync to the songs. 95% of the performance was aimed at the Russians, Chinese & Japanese with the songs being sung in these languages. The only highlight of the night, was a young boy in the chorus (he was dressed as a young man, not a women) who was the best damn performer of the night. He danced like he was performing before the queen. Smiled all the time and sung like his heart was about to burst. It was amazing to see the audience react to him, and you could notice that most people sitting around us were focused on him.
When we tried to get a drink, we were told that there was only 'dark beer' available. There was no other alcoholic beverage available. So I asked for a coffee - Sorry no tea or coffee either. Yes there was water, but that was served warm, not from a fridge. Very poor indeed, not what was advertised at all.
If you want to see a "real" cabaret" act, go to the Moulin Rouge in Bangla road. They do 3 shows a night, and the girls come out beforehand to promote the show. Their costumes are beautiful, and their show the best I've seen in a long time. These 'ladyboys' loved being on the stage, they knew every word of every song. The engaged the audience and there was not one thing you could fault. Yes, there were breasts on show some of the time, but not for 80% of it. And by the way, it was only 200bht to go see it !!!
