A magnificent night of campness!
This is a show where boys can be boys and girls can be… well… boys too…
Every single performer was stunning in their own way and all dance brilliantly.
Yes, The Lady Boys of Bangkok are back at the Brighton Fringe, and in my opinion this production is bigger and better than ever.
The new show is called Who Runs The World … Well I would say the Lady Boys do!
The sets are simple but well designed, the costumes are obviously outrageously glitzy with no end of sequins and colour, the music is current and memorable and there are many comical moments that had the audience at times in stitches.
The routines are brilliant with two great musicals Grease and Chicago among those featured. They even have the car from Grease on stage.
There is a wonderful tribute to all the Asian cultures, featuring magnificent costumes.
It’s worth going if only to see the Tina Turner impersonator, absolutely brilliant with all the facial expressions and movements. The same performer is hilarious during the comedy routines and works so well with the clown of the show, a dwarf who amongst many routines becomes ‘Bridget the Midget!’
Audience participation is unique with the comedy duo making the most of unsuspecting members of the audience.
The cast numbers just 16 performers. At times you would think there were 66 of them as they make the most of the stage and auditorium, dancing anywhere and everywhere there are spaces in the Sabai Pavilion.
Looking for a downside? Don’t expect perfect lip-syncing, apart from that what is there not to like?
If you are looking for a memorable night out with a lot of laughs you can’t go wrong with The Lady Boy’s of Bangkok at the Sabai Pavilion, Victoria Gardens, Brighton until the end of the Fringe on June 3.
