Playhouse Cabaret at Asia Hotel

A Great Ladyboy Show in Bangkok

After stints in Phuket and Chiang Mai, Playhouse Theatre has brought their family-friendly ladyboy show to Bangkok with glamourous dancers, stunning costumes and classic show tunes. The show differs from most other transvestite cabarets in that the emphasis is on expertly choreographed dance routines and showmanship (excuse the pun) rather than any kind of erotic dancing. There are over ten separate acts during the 1 hour 15 minute performance during which time the audience will be treated to renditions of Christina Aguilera, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson and Swan Lake.

Playhouse Ladyboy Show opened at The Asia Hotel in October 2012. The location is a real plus point as it is has direct access to Ratchathewi BTS Station and the hotel has been associated with ladyboy cabaret for over 20 years, albeit with a different production company. Some of the dancers are obviously professionally trained – including an excellent male break-dancer. The cast is a varied mix: some have been performers for many years and have travelled abroad to perform, while other dancers are still students who study in the day and dance at night. Supporting the main dancers is a chorus line of male dancers who execute some impressive dance moves. 

 

The show costs 1,200 baht per ticket for either the 20:15 early show or the 21:45 late show, seven days a week. Included in the price is a drink of your choice and waiting staff are on hand throughout the show if you want to order more. The theatre itself seats around 350 in a cosy and intimate semi-circle. All seats have clear views of the stage but the best seats in the house are as front and central as possible – as long as you’re not the shy and retiring type as you’ll likely get lots of eye contact from the performers on stage.

Play House Cabaret is a nice option for visitors who want to see a ladyboy show without the more risqué material found in the larger shows in Pattaya and Phuket. Although there is a small part of the show dedicated to a Chinese-inspired theme (complete with a dancing dragon), the range of performances at Playhouse in Bangkok is more focused on Western acts with a rendition of Fame, Mr Bojangles and a fairly original version of Beyonce mixed with Fred Astaire.
