The Lady Boys Of Bangkok – Fur Coats And French Knickers Tour (Lady Boys of Bangkok)

By | Published on Friday 12 August 2011

Firmly established Festival favourites the Lady Boys once again sashay sparkling across the stage. From hypnotically nimble choreography to campness manifest in its most extreme form by ‘Tuck That’, prepare to be dazzled by the Bangkok beauties. Although poor lip-syncing detracts from their mystique, all is forgiven when an ogre-like Marylin Monroe clambers from the curtains. However much you try and fight it, you simply won’t be able to resist jumping to your feet and clapping along to a rendition of ‘Five-Hundred Miles’. Make no mistake, this show isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but if you have a sneaky suspicion that it might be, you’re in for a night of outrageous fun.

Meadows Theatre Big Top, 5 – 27 Aug (not 8, 9), times vary, £15.00 – £20.00, fpp11.
