    Not a must-see
    I had read in a phuket Facebook group that this show was a must-see, but I'm unsure why. The performers seemed like they'd learned the routine last week. My partner leaned over during the show and whispered that it felt like watching rock eisteddfod, and he was correct. The costumes were stunning though, very pretty. But for a show that's on multiple times a day, every day, it seemed amateur.

    Sparkling & glamorous costumes
    We loved the show, the array of costumes and dancing was great. The most shattering thing occurred after the show. I got to take a photo of my friend with 2 ladyboys. Then one ladyboy snatched the camera out of my hand for a selfie of the 4 of us. Then she demanded 200 baht each. I’ve been to the show before, I didnt want a photo. That’s when she got aggressive, forcing us to pay 400 baht. We were threatened and intimidated , I should have have yelled out to security. It ruined our lovely night.

    Fun evening
    Another wish there was half a point for reviews .. this is 3.5. My husband and I enjoyed the music, costumes and energy of the show. The cocktails pre-show are actually quite good and reasonably priced. Like other reviews it's a little bit of a mixed bag performance wise, some of the dancers are quite wooden and the miming not synchronised which gives a somewhat amateurish feel to some of the numbers. Having said that, some of the main performers were actually very good. If you're looking for something a little different - it's a fun evening. The performers are lined up outside and you can pay to have your photo taken - you're not obliged to and we weren't hassled to do so.

    Hour of dazzle, dance and music
    A must see in Phuket. This was the finale of the trip for us and it was the most apt closure that you can expect. I went in with the question as to what is the big deal about this show and I came out with utmost respect for the founders and the lady boys who did a dazzling display of dance. The hour went by like anything. The dance and costume were just mind blowing. It was by far the best show that I have been to. It can be seen with family. There are couple of songs with adult theme but nothing vulgar. DO NOT MISS.

    Be aware before having photos after Cabaret show!
    Went with my family last night, the cabaret was great…. After the show the ladyboys called us over for a photo on our own phone.. my daughter & I agreed, then after my family member took a photo of us, the ladyboys said now you have to pay us 200 baht each!! Many other people were completely surprised by this, and two of the ladyboys were quite aggressive, I complained to the manager of the show that they should let customers know prior to taking a photo that they expect you to pay them… would never go again!

    Fun, vibrant show - ruined by pushy performers demanding 500baht each for photos
    The show was great, very entertaining. The costumes were fantastic, so many outfit changes. Some of the lip sinking wasn’t too good as some didn’t know the words. Overall great. The show was ruined at the end tho when we were encouraged to get a photo with the performers. We knew we had to tip them. What we didn’t know was that they would pressure us aggressively to give them 500baht each for the photos! Outrageous and left us feeling scammed!

    Be careful with tips for the pictures in the end of the show
    Loved the music and vibrant atmosphere. Nice lighting and in general show is amazing Some of the dancers you can see are a bit not so confident yet but some of them really professionals As mentioned before in the reviews After show they basically make you to take a picture with them and then demand on tips They asked us 100 bahts for each performer but to be honest non of them were even my favourites so you don’t really have time to think and find the one you liked at least and you don’t have time to pose and make nice picture everything happens so quick and the way they ask for money actually makes you feel scammed. But show was nice.

    A fun night out if you don’t take it too seriously;-)
    The dancing was a bit wooden, the first few numbers weren’t great. But stick with it, it gets better in a funny way. Great variety of music and costumes. The theatre is clean and cool, staff very welcoming and helpful. The main men (as men) were the better dancers and the ‘ladies’ walk/dance better in heels than me, so who am I to judge! A fun night out!

    Exceptional entertainment
    Don't understand the negative reviews on here, my expectations were exceeded on every level from the free private parking just outside, the ultra efficient ushers, comfortable seats, tons of legroom right through to an hour or so of non stop glitzy entertainment. The performers danced their socks off, light show and visuals were exceptional. If you're in Phuket don't miss it.

It was alright.

Glamorous looking ‘ladies’ lip syncing to some songs with glittery outfits. This was an experience as I am a drag race fan but some of the girls looked bored at the back. They were probably tired of doing the same routine each night and it showed in their facial expressions. I also got a bit of a headache from the glare reflecting back from the outfits, the spotlights are a bit too bright for the costumes.

Otherwise it was a good show with some funny moments. There was one particular male dancer with funny facial expressions and he stole the show but the other ladies looked the part. Be aware after the show as you leave they all line up and beg you to take photos with them for a nominal fee.

Go and experience it if you’re a drag queen fan!

The show was alright. We managed to get a bargain on our tickets as we were a big group but definetly no where near worth paying 1000 baht that many places (including online) advertise at! Some parts of the show are funny and extravagant but most of it reminded me of a school play, very tacky and cheap with some of the dancers looking like they'd rather be elsewhere. After the show had finished the performers are outside enticing people in for photos. Make sure you read the sign beforehand 100 baht for each drag queen in the photo. I had 2 more drag queen's jump into my photo without asking and then demanded 200 baht each from me!! They were very aggressive and quiet frankly scary! It really has put me off going to lady boy shows in the future.

This is a fun and entertaining show to watch and I’m sure a unique experience for many families from parr’s of the world where they would not easily be able to see family-friendly drag show.

What is it? Ladyboys who look so convincingly like ladies that my son didn’t believe they were boys and still doesn’t. They lip sync to crown pleasing songs in English (mainly), Chinese, Hindi and Russian. Not being Russian, I didn’t recognize the Russian songs but the lady next to me went crazy happy when she heard them.

Cons: some axes are better than others which is to be expected. Finally, when the ladies gather outside the building as free the show to offer guests photo opportunities, they are looking for cash. I found them very pushy to give 200 Baht for a photo, and each one who appears DEMANDS to be paid. I found this annoying and left me with a sour taste after the show I enjoyed watching.

These ladies slayed it!

3 back to back shows per day to an audience of around 400. There’s no food or drink allowed inside and at the beginning of the show the audience is told to not make noise. Of course the audience isn’t going to generate that much energy for the lady boys to reciprocate. All things considered, the costumes, the choreography, the sets, these ladies were a 10. Pessimistic reviews are exactly that, pessimistic. If you come to enjoy the show, then you will.

Yas queens! Keep up the great work!

This was overall a very average experience. The costumes were extravagant and there were some very talented performers, but I wouldn't be inclined to recommend this to anyone who has limited time in Phuket.

Some of the performers looked like they didn't want to be there and like they didn't have enough energy to be doing the dance moves.

Please be aware that the girls do charge for photos afterwards - they are all standing in a line when you exit and are very friendly until after the photos are taken, when their attitude switches in a second when they tell you how much it will cost - in our case, 200 baht for each girl that was in the photo so 400 baht in total.

I think my favourite part of the experience was the drinks we had beforehand - decently priced and tasted nice!

The show is a must visit while you are in Phuket. It was full of energy, beauty and glamour. Colourful dresses, costumes and glitters. The songs covered from several countries which the audience of related countries liked very much. Photo and videography was strictly prohibited. There was huge fine for that.

We watched the evening show and we were in for a surprise. The show was very entertaining and I would say all the performers were extremely talented. The show was for 1 hour but after half n hour it seems to be repetitive and one might get bored. The awesome part was when they did a bollywood performance totally unexpected. Its worth going to see such a talent. After the show was finished we saw the performers lined up and beckoned us to come and take pics. I happily ran to them and I was unaware that they will demand money from us. We were not aware of it. Just a heads up.

Went along with my wife on our honeymoon.

Although it is not typically “my bag”, I enjoyed the colourful, extravagant costumes and some of the dancing and I was amazed at the femininity of some of the dancers.

However, while leaving my partner was beckoned over to take a photo. They then beckoned me over and I also obliged, purely to be polite. However, immediately afterwards one of the dancers stood over me and aggressively demanded 540 Thai bhat or $20 for the photos.

My partner and I were shocked and felt we had to give something so not to create a scene while the dancer stared down at my wife’s purse.

We ended up giving $15 for 2 photos which we didn’t want. The experience left a sour taste in my mouth, we felt conned and would not recommend it and it is certainly not suitable for children.

Everything is a bit rushed. While the show is entertaining and the costumes are amazing, there is work to be done. Dancers are out of time and looking at each other for what moves they should be doing next. Lip syncing is either great or the performers can't even be bothered to try and its evident to see which leads don't like each other on stage (which is hilarious). Its good but not great and worth s look if only for the costumes. If only they put more effort into the performance as they do the costumes and sets.

The show itself was really good,my wife and i both enjoyed it.Costumes were lovely,and there were so many of them.It was a non stop show from start to finish.

After the show finished,you could take photos with the performers,but they charge,a sign above them says minimum 100 baht,but they want more,and can be quite aggressive about it.Would have given it 4 stars had it not been for the attitude towards the photos.
