Paying tribute to Beyonce, Boy George and Rihanna, the Lady Boys are back in town and as fabulous as ever.

The 16 'showgirls' perform a cabaret like no other, with fantastic renditions of musicals Chicago and Grease, mixed with lip-syncs of contemporary pop songs alongside old classics.

The Sabai Pavilion pops up for Brighton Fringe each year, and the latest offering 'Who Runs the World' is a must see.

With Hollywood glitz and glamour, heaps of bawdy comedy and talent abound, the Lady Boys don't fail to impress.

Creative director Phillip Gandey spoke of the challenge of creating a new production each year, and said: “When we brought the Lady Boys of Bangkok to Britain for the first time people were attracted by the sheer novelty. Never before had a company of Lady Boys performed a show in the western world. Almost two decades on and the Lady Boys of Bangkok is still the only show of its kind this side of Bangkok. But it no longer relies simply on novelty – it is a fantastic, non-stop spectacular theatrical experience."

If you enjoy cheesy pop, saucy in-your-face comedy and sequins galore, then the Lady Boys are for you.
