“a must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Must see for the following reasons:

Outfits
Backgrounds
Good laughs
Good music
Terrible acting! (hilarious)
The shock that these really are men
the world culture snippets (such as India, Japan etc.) not only Thai culture.

The performers have a sad and pityful attitude on them when performing, I am unsure if they are tired or just unprofessional actors, but they all appear really bored. Try to overlook this, to enhoy the show as it really is worth the 25USD

“Some funny bits but overall a bit disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

The costumes and sets are really amazing and the venue is very nice, however most over the performances were pretty poor with very bad lip syncing and out of sync dancing. The performers (apart from a couple) seemed like they'd rather be anywhere else and were very unenthusiastic.

“Campy spectacle, time filler for the night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Other than the fact that the performers are transsexual, there was nothing particular exceptional about this show.

The sets and costumes were pretty impressive, but the performers were totally unenthusiastic and lacked energy.

I paid 550 baht per person for a VIP ticket inclusive of return transport to my hotel in Patong. Do this only if you are looking to fill your night in Phuket. It's a harmless diversion, but one you could just as easily do without for the money.

“Ooh la la la, fun stuff ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

For the overpriced place phuket can be this seems reasonably priced. Yes the show might not top the charts in terms of entertainment but you would enjoy nonetheless. You would be busy gawking at the beauty guys can possess.
Yes all the main performers are lady boys. The piece is however clean and you might not be very embarrassed taking your kids along.

Tip: instead of buying tickets from the window buy it from an agent in patong beach area and negotiate for deals.

“Funny”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

Some things in Thailand really made us laugh especially this show. The performances were not very good but that just added to the humor. However, for the price we expected a bit more professionalism or show skills.
