Aphrodite Cabaret Show in Phuket

Entertaining Ladyboys Show in Phuket Town

Aphrodite is a glamorous cabaret show much in the same vein as Simon Cabaret in Patong. With a cast of hundreds it's certainly impressive to view and an entertaining night out. A large ship-like structure located opposite Tesco Lotus just outside Phuket Town, it houses a 900-seater theatre, a suki shop that can hold 350 diners and a 600-diner Chinese restaurant, as well as a brewery producing three types of Pearl Lager Beer.

Visitors arriving early for the Aphrodite cabaret show can enjoy an al fresco beer at the outside section or if hungry can choose from the two large air-conditioned restaurants serving Japanese and Chinese dishes. Adjacent to the carpeted lobby, you’ll find an atmospheric wooden-floor bar complete with bronze brewing equipment from which three types of beer are served: Pearl lager, Pearl dunkel (dark) beer, and Pearl weizen beer, each one tasty and unique.

Things can get hectic just before showtime, when the previous audience is filing out and the incoming audience arriving, so this bar is highly recommended to escape the melee.

You can count on the show starting right on time here and it kicks off with a bang, with a showbiz-meets-Siam number featuring a full stage of dancers and ‘singers’, all impossibly glamorous and eye catching.

The upbeat second number has a bump and grind Madonna theme to it and as that ends and the lights fade, the modern is instantly replaced with a traditional Thai song with costumes to match and it has to be said that the costumes are magnificent, with clever lighting that brings their tones and textiles out.

The Ricky Martin number that follows is a prelude to the comic relief section of the show where a very busty ‘lady’ invites a male member of the audience up on stage to embarrass him to the point where the poor guy is crimson with embarrassment – a good reason for avoiding the front seats at this spectacle.

Up till this point all the songs have been in English but the Korean contingent of the audience erupt in applause at the first bars of a Korean number, as do the Chinese onlookers when a melodic, almost hypnotic song and umbrella dance is delivered in the their language.

Then it’s the turn of the Japanese who are serenaded in their own tongue before the set changes and a strident beat and gyrating dancers announce a Russian-language number. The choreography at Aphrodite is admirable and the multi-armed Shiva goddess in the penultimate number is a perfect example of the ingenuity on display here.

Finally, after just over an hour of colourful entertainment, the last number is belted out by the entire cast – there are 80 of them. Filing out, it appears that we’ve been headed off at the pass by more prominent members of the cast and they line the corridor soliciting photos with fascinated members of the audience – and expecting a reasonable tip for their trouble.

Outside, the world looks a drab place without the sequins, boa feathers and makeup of Aphrodite. Perhaps there’s just enough time to go back in for another one of their delicious beers before leaving.
