I Am What I Am

Last Wednesday my friend B and I had a night out at the theatre, but it was no Shakespeare or Chekov for was pure cabaret. We were fortunate enough to bag tickets for the hottest show in town..The Ladyboys Of Bangkok. At first when the lights went down and the music began..I was hesitant. This was not through any predjudice but because the first performer to enter the fore couldn't have been farther from the beautiful kathoey I was led to believe I was here to see. I soon learned this was the 'comic turn'..and a great recurring act throughout a entertaining show. The all dancing, all singing (okay 'all miming') ladyboys were indeed both stunning and enchanting. From the overtly risque 'Dont'cha Wish your Girlfriend Was Hot Like Me' to the more traditional and utterly superb drag number 'I Am What I Am'...I was hooked.
What a great fun night out.

Sounds like a great time- I'll have to check it out if it comes to Atlanta.

So I was correct in assuming that these ladies hadn't always been ladies. Interesting that you'd get a troupe of trannies in your neck of the woods.
