Thailand Ladyboy Superstars
If you’ve been to Thailand, then no doubt you encountered the country’s obsession with cabaret performers known as ladyboys: Thai beauty queens, singers and dancers dressed head to toe in intricate costumes dripping in diamantes, feathers and sequins. This September, more than 20 of Thailand’s most highly regarded performers from some of the country’s most prestigious cabaret shows will make their way to St Kilda for a show that is hilarious and filled with talent. While the show isn’t vulgar and there is no nudity, this one’s adults-only for its cheeky, sexy performances and jokes. They’ll be performing under the Big Top in St Kilda on the St Kilda Triangle in the Lower Esplanade. Tickets are now on sale and start from $49 – get on it now!
