Last night at The Ladyboys

Last night at The Ladyboys

The website boldly claims.'The UK's favourite Thai beauties are dripping with diamante and sizzling on stage with songs and side-splitting comedy. See elaborate costumes, feel the heart breaking beats, sense the mystery and live the intensity that can only be - The Lady Boys Of Bangkok'.

Now in their 15th year,this unique entertainment has indeed come along away,from what now seems quite basic and lowly beginnings. Under the expert guidance of Producers Philip and Carol Gandey, together with their long established team,the shows have evolved into highly glamorous,highly camp,performances

One key factor has been the choosing of high profile'of the moment' Divas and last night was no exception. Last night a packed Sabai Pavilion was treated to J Lo,Girls Aloud,Nicki Manaj,Shirley Bassey,Cher and finally Tina Turner.The latter two bringing the audience to their feet.Full marks too,to the long serving sompob Tunheng and Ducha Nuchangsing who both provided several clever cameos in between the larger staged numbers.

Clever too,was the original staging of '50 Shades of Grey',Ladyboys style.This comedic round was both difficult and very funny and was pulled off expertly.

The now obligatory audience participation,spots always go down well and despite the usual reluctance by some,to take to the stage,a willing 'soul' is found and more fun follows.

And so for nearly 2 hours,this hard working,enthusiastic cast,entertained us all royally and truly lived up to the title of this years show.Glamorous Amorous. It certainly was.

Although many of the audience lamented this years location at MUFC car parks(were parking is excellent by the way),not one of them had anything but praise for what they had seen and some vowed to return with friends.

The show runs in Manchester until Sat 6th July. For more details and to book..Click here.
