Fun high energy. Excellent dance moves from some very talented classically trained dancers. Some dire song choices mimed. A British telephone box on a US set made us smile. Worth a visit. Expensive for an hour - but they have a large cast and lots of costumes. Cast work hard. I am very glad we went. Overall I would recommend,

My husband and I went to Playhouse theater after a few friends recommended, we've been before to other Lady Boy shows but this one was different right from the start. I personally loved it, everything was great, the show, the atmosphere a great vibe. If you are looking for an entertaining night in Bangkok, then this cabaret venue is perfect for the entire family, Recommended!..... and the dancers are great! The location is in Asia Hotel and the price is 1200 baht included one drink.

For a one-hour-long show, it is WAY overpriced. But, the show is very good. The ladyboys and regular boys are very talented, with just a few hiccups in dancing that shows they aren't the absolute best of the best. Amazing costumes! Fun music!

The ladyboys will pull you into their midst to get photographed with them at the end of the show and won't let you go without you tipping everyone who got in the shot. Keep this in mind when you are budgeting if you think you'll want a photo with the cast.

DO NOT order a drink except beer or wine. It will be so watered down you won't be able to tell you didn't order a soda.

The Ladyboy Cabaret we enjoyed on NYE was fantastic, they were really putting in effort without looking like professionals. I can really respect their desire to put on the entertaining show! Great job everyone.

We where staying at the Asia Hotel for a few days before our flight home and booked to go on our second evening. The theatre is a nice cabaret style venue and holds around 350, unfortunately the evening we chose there we only around 35 people in and so there was a total lack of atmosphere, The show is mimed to tape, even the 42nd street tap dancing which had an English Telephone box as part of an American scene

The artists tried there best but sorry I was not impressed, at the end of the show we had to leave to the left of the stage and were invited to have photo's taken with the cast many of them pestered us for tips!!!
