From Bangkok to Belfast, the Lady Boys of Bangkok are due back in town this November at Custom House Square Belfast with their latest production ‘Beauties and the Beats’, a brand new, cabaret-infused show which has had audiences dancing the night away as the Ladyboys tour around the UK for a record breaking seventeenth season!
Bringing the beat back to Belfast like no one else can from Friday 06 to Saturday 21 November, the Ladyboys will certainly add some tantalizing Thai spice to the city’s autumn nights.
This year’s fever-pitch of a show includes 16 of Thailand’s most alluring and arresting Lady Boys – who just happen to be men – and their blazing hot production has been composed seamlessly, mixing comedy and chart topping hits with beautiful choreography.
Returning to Belfast for a seventh year running, the Lady Boys of Bangkok have fast become the country’s favourite touring cabaret show, with thanks to their live and immersive performances. Creative Director Phillip Gandey said he is thrilled to be returning to Belfast:
“Finishing a year’s tour off in one of our favourite cities is exciting for me. The people of Belfast truly immerse themselves in the cabaret spirit of the show and it makes the city an annual highlight in the tour diary. This year’s brand new production ‘Beauties and the Beats’ has been in the making since last November, so we’re very excited to come full circle this November and go out with a BANG in Belfast.”
“The Sabai Pavilion, the tour’s custom-built show tent, is decked out with two fully licensed bars and the resident chef is always on hand to delight the audience’s taste buds with some authentic Thai cuisine. From the moment you enter the foyer, the smells, sights and sounds permeate the pavilion, transporting you to the Ladyboys’ very own oriental world.”
Audiences should prepare to see over 400 specially designed lavish costumes – everything from fabulous feathers to diamante-draped, designer-inspired couture – backed by an eclectic mix of musical genres including movie hits, superstar pop favourites and a splash of dance added to keep the fun going long into the night.
Gandey continued: “With more songs and production numbers than you could shake your hips to, from Jersey Boys to The Sound of Music and even a special homage to Frozen, this year’s show will once again be paying tribute to the stars of both stage and screen; old and new… from Liza Minelli to Cher and then, with a glistening twirl, Rhianna or Nicki Minaj! Plus, with ticket and meal packages to suit any needs – from Hen Parties to Birthday Celebrations and extra special treats – the Ladyboys party is like no other party, the girls like no other girls, it really is a night you’ll never forget!”
