Energetic, exotic, eclectic and unpredictable.
The sensationally glamorous Lady Boys of Bangkok are ready to whoop it up in Bournemouth for the very first time with the specially built cabaret venue ‘The Sabai Pavilion’.
Coming to the The Waterfront, ‘Forever Yours…x’ is a show like no other.
Fast and unrelenting, it is described as a night of pure escapism releasing audiences from the humdrum of everyday life in a euphoric bubble of laughter, glamour, glitz and music. The eclectic mix of music effortlessly flows from movie hits to superstar pop favourites with tributes ranging from Kylie, Katy, Rhianna, Tina and Shakira to Whoopi Goldberg and even One Direction. Add a load of laughs and it is sure to be a night to remember.
Creative Director Phillip Gandey said a huge amount of time and effort went into breaking down the traditional boundaries between stage and audience so that everyone could feel involved. “The essence of cabaret is to include the audience and, as the Lady Boys of Bangkok is very much part of the cabaret genre, we’ve gone to great lengths to ensure our production stays true to that concept”.
One of the principal artistes, Sonia (Mr Uten Pengsa Ard) The Dance Captain (lead dancer) of the Lady Boys of Bangkok said: “We can’t wait to head to Bournemouth for this first time this year. It’s always exciting performing for a new audience and we’re sure the people of Bournemouth will love our show.” With two licensed bars and a wide choice of exotic meals freshly prepared by resident Thai chefs, and a whole range of souvenirs and novelties to take home – the Bangkok experience is complete.”
Attired in specially created and hand-sewn lavish costumes, 16 of Thailand’s most stunning Lady Boys are touring the UK for a record breaking 19th year and their loyal audiences – and critics alike. This is what the Edinburgh Guide had to say: “The Lady Boys Of Bangkok are simply the best cabaret floor-show you will see at the Fringe or anywhere else, they are simply fantastic!”
See them at the specially built Sabai Pavilion on The Waterfront on 17-25 June.
