Executive Producer Carol Gandey said the theatre sector of the British tour was always an eagerly anticipated highlight. “We find that theatre audiences are extremely responsive and the artistes tell us they can feel the warmth of the welcome and support,” she said.
Creative Director Phillip Gandey said a huge amount of time and effort went into breaking down the traditional boundaries between stage and audience so that everyone could feel involved. “The essence of cabaret is include the audience and as the Lady Boys of Bangkok is very much part of the cabaret genre we’ve gone to great lengths to ensure our theatre production stays true to that concept”.
One of the principal artistes, Sonia (Mr Uten Pengsa Ard) The Dance Captain (lead dancer) of the Lady Boys of Bangkok said:” We all love appearing in theatres in Britain. The audiences always make us feel so welcome and it gives us the opportunity to bring our show to parts of the country that we might not otherwise be able to reach.”
