The shows at the acclaimed Tiffany’s Show, Alcazar and The Coliseum are performed at state- of-the-art luxurious theatres and are usually so well attended that advanced booking is required.
Tiffany’s Cabaret Show
Tiffany’s was the first ever transvestite cabaret show in southeast Asia, starting in a small bar as a one-man show in Pattaya back in 1974. Since then literally millions of people have seen the stunning show every evening.Tiffany’s has now become a household name across southeast Asia and the rest of the world for first class performances and the most beautiful ladyboys in Thailand.
There are over 100 dancers and performers that will take you through time and different lands as they perform exotic routines, the choreography is second to none and the costumes dazzling. Legends come to life, glamour holds no boundaries, music pulsates and the show lasts a lifetime in the memory.
Another long established favourite in Pattaya, Alcazar Cabaret show had its first performance in 1981 in a theatre with a capacity of only 350 people. The show moved to its current location in 1990, and has been wowing 1,200 capacity audiences ever since. The sound and light system is state-of-the-art but plays second fiddle to the real attraction of the show, and that is the transvestite dancers. The 70 minute performances are shown 4 times nightly, and the energy and endurance of the dancers amaze as they gracefully glide across the stage, singing, dancing, gyrating through seventeen amazing routines.
Millions of people have laughed, sang-a-long, clapped their hands, tapped their feet as they enjoyed every second of Alcazar’s brilliant performances.
