The Lady Boys of Bangkok

wHO RUNS THE WORLD a2

Yes, the Lady Boys are back in town with their lavish new production –  WHO RUNS THE WORLD! Performed by 16 of Thailand’s most alluring Lady Boys at the specially created Thai Pavilion, the show has pitched up in Manchester, Chester Road until 24th June.

It’s the perfect way to forget what is going on in the real world for a couple of hours and enjoy pure cheeky fun with an abundance of sequins and campness! The Lady Boys of Bangkok is of course, (as you get from the title), performed by gorgeous showgirls like no other showgirls – they are all male Thai nationals. Each one is absolutely stunning with never ending legs, chiselled cheekbones and made up to perfection. I defy any woman not to feel envious and any man to not question his sanity that these ‘women’ are actually men!

WHO RUNS THE WORLD sees the ensemble strut their stuff through a number of risqué routines, lip-syncing their life out of pop classics from divas like Beyonce, Arianna Grande and Rhianna. They also play homage to the theatre with cleverly crafted sections from The Lion King, Grease and Chicago.

No expense is spared when it comes to the costumes, there’s rhinestones a plenty and flamboyancy is obviously the theme with huge feather head dresses and cage-like dresses that have your jaw dropping at the splendour.

And then there’s Trevor…the Lancashire addition to the group, known to audiences up and down the country as ‘the little guy’. Trevor is hilarious with his ‘Benny Hill’ style solos playing up his ‘northern roots’ and the fact he is so far removed from the other 16 performers onstage.

It’s all huge fun and the audience love it as they holler, sing along to the cheesy tunes and get up on their feet to dance along. If you want something that will put a smile on your face you can’t go wrong with The Lady Boys of Bangkok and after a years’ absence from our great city Manchester is glad to have them back.

Top Tip: Look out for special discounts on their website and 241 nights. Plus, if you want to make a night of it there’s Thai cuisine available in the Pavilion and two bars on site to put you in the party mood.
