    Average dated show
    An honest review- this is a dated and average show. We saw better shows in bars with a lot less budget. The dancers are so non engaging with the audience, wooden in most places and the miming is awful. The song choices (apart from the Rihanna act) are really old fashioned verging on boring. We genuinely thought about walking out but it was only an hour and we were hopeful it might improve. The costumes are in the main tacky, especially the ‘somewhere over the rainbow dress’. Also, not sure what the point of the 3 compares were???? All they said were ‘here are the lady’s….. here are the boys’ it felt like someone just gave them a job for the sake of it. I will finish with a question? Why was a large portion of the show men dancing? I thought we came to see a lady boy Cabaret? We wouldn’t return.

    Some great numbers interspersed with some slightly cheesy ones
    We arrived a little late due to Bangkoks insane traffic. The show was in full swing. It’s all lip sync which is fine. Some of the numbers were well done but some we’re really cheesy. Overall it was good but not great. At the end the performers will want to take your photo with them - for a price.

    A current event stuck in old times.
    Funny do. Nothing close to a professional high end cabaret show, but a good show put up by some really nice people. Hope the lip syncing was better and the concept was more relevant to current times rather still being stuck in 1980s and 90s.

    A unique and well-executed experience!
    Calypso Cabaret was a unique and enjoyable show, with a lot of passion put in by the performers. It's a ladyboy cabaret, essentially a collection of choreographed dance numbers with lip syncing. The lighting, costumes, and choreography were good, and there was a decent amount of variety in themes and styles (from classic and jazzy, to campy, to avant garde, to humorous), and styles of music, as well... so if one piece doesn't float your boat, the next one might. And the "gender illusion" is quite impressive in some cases. I felt like it was money well-spent and worth the experience.

We attended a ladyboy show in another city and decided to do a cabaret show in Bangkok. I highly recommend you spend your money at any other show because:

1. It was heavily choreographed and dancers visibly could not keep up - but the costumes were great.
2. The show lacked character, there was no passion or sense of humour it was like a school play.
3. Half the show was about other cultures. We’re visiting Thailand, we don’t want to see Indian, Greek, Korean and Japanese performances.
4. This is the number one reason we did not like the show - IT WAS VERY RACIST. They imitated Indian dancing, Korean, Greek dancing and then MADE FUN of Japanese culture. This was excruciating to watch, and there were Indian people in front of us that shook their heads and got up and left. I suggest you find a ladyboy show in another city that’s authentic, humorous and fun to watch. This was a waste of 50$ a person.

With a tour group we enjoyed a fabulous meal here with Thai dancers entertaining us and kindly posing for photos with us.The staff were very friendly and helpful. We did not see the show but saw the artistes pose for photos with the audience when the show was finished. The place is in amongst a huge market which was also great to walk around

Maybe I've been spoilt by watching too much Ru Paul Drag Race but we thought the show was quite poor overall.

We hoped to be entertained either by the show being funny or being wowed by the performance but the show lacked both. The lip syncing was really obvious and the backup dancers playing instruments didn't even pretend to play them.

The show consists of short lip syncing skits one after each other and it felt a bit one dimensional. I think the show could have been improved if the bad lip syncing skits were broken up with some other form of cabaret like stand up comedy for example.

We also found the show quite impersonal. There was no crowd interaction and even the MC's seemed to be lip synced in an american accent which we found quite odd.

Seating was hard wooden chairs which became quite uncomfortable.

There were some performers which were decent which is why we give two stars rather than one but overall for the price I think there are better activities in Bangkok to attend. In saying that, others reviewing on trip adviser seemed to enjoy the show so maybe you will too.

Four of us decided to go to see the show as we had heard so much about it. We were not dissapointed as the show was brilliant. The music ,singing and dancing were superb.The whole show was very entertaining and well worth the money. After the show you can get your photo taken with some of the cast with your own phone. You just have to give them a few bhatt whichgives you something to look back on.

We paid just for the ticket to see the show without a meal, and we were glad we came here. The show itself is very cheesy not nonetheless we really enjoyed it! If anything it’s a good laugh and the lady boys give it everything they’ve got. All in all a great 1 hour spent!
