The Ladyboys are back in town and celebrating turning ‘21’ with The Greatest Showgirls Tour 2019!

Venue 189, Theatre Big Top, Fountainbridge, Edinburgh, EH3 9RX

Let’s Hear It For The Boys as they transform into 16 of the most glamourous showgirls, adorned with crystals and sequins galore, to showcase tributes to some of our favourite divas including Kylie, Beyonce, J-Lo, Madonna, Whitney Houston and Rihanna.

Dreams will be stirred as audiences are served a smorgasbord of routines – from M People to Little Mix, the Pussycat Dolls to Disney Princesses.
Tour promoter Binky Beaumont can’t wait to see the ladyboys ‘come of age’ in this latest production.

He said: “When artistic director Philip Gandey opened The Lady Boys of Bangkok at the Edinburgh Fringe in 1998, the success of the show was mind-blowing. After a few amazing years, demand was really high from other cities for us to bring this one-of-a-kind production to them as well.

“For its 21st year we are bringing audiences a show that is even more glitzy and glamourous, and we even have three new cast members! Every year there is a new theme, and ‘The Greatest Showgirls Tour’ allows us to celebrate our favourite divas.”

The Lady Boys wear over 400 impressive costumes in the show, and a full-time seamstress is employed to keep them all in check. But the Lady Boys of Bangkok isn’t all just about glamour. There’s side-splitting comedy, and plenty of audience participation.

With more songs and big-scale musical production numbers than you could point a perfumed glove at, The Lady Boys of Bangkok adds a splash of colour to the black-and-white normality of everyday life. And the entertainment of The Greatest Showgirls Tour soars from start to finish, with its complete celebration of individuality and pride.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Lady Boys of Bangkok: The Greatest Showgirls Tour! are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
