  • I went to this show with a group of friends/coworkers on a Thursday night. I will admit that I had low expectations going into this show. It was mostly because I did not think that I would find it entertaining (because it is not really "my thing"), but I also had never been to this type of show before, so I wanted to see what they were like. Most of us got tickets at the front desk for regular price. We were then seated, and the theatre room was about half full during this particular evening. You get a free drink with your ticket – I ordered a mixed drink, which was only okay. Without really giving anything away!!... The show consists of multiple (mixed) short acting scenes and live dance/music/song performances. Each act may be from some form of art style or period in history, with each from different regions in the world. Not surprisingly, there were some acts/performances that aimed at changing public opinion about transgender, etc. In the end, I appreciated all of the acting scenes, which may seem weird at first, since they sometimes do it without words and then you have to figure out what's going on. The musical performances were all pretty entertaining, with some being outright comical (like everyone in theater laughed). They even interact with the audience sometimes. Overall I enjoyed watching it with our group of friends/coworkers. I would recommend only to those with "open minds" (probably better to be in groups) who want something new and entertaining to do for the evening.
  • If you’re looking for a Vegas style show with live singing and perfect choreography, this is not it. Instead you’ll get a high energy show with a big cast and a lot of lip syncing. I have to admit that in the beginning I was caught back by what I thought the show was going to be vs. what it actually is. Yes some of the lip syncing was completely off, yes the choreography was out of sync many times but once I got over it I started to enjoy it. Some of the performances were hilarious. Honestly go with the intention of having a good time. You’ll get to see the lady boys perform and be entertained for a little over an hour of your time. I’ve been to Vegas shows numerous times and I understand how some people may get frustrated by what they think this show is going to be. If you’re one of those people, I suggest you skip the show. But if you want to have some fun, be entertained and laugh with friends, definitely check it out. Go with no expectations.
