“Extravaganza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

Ladyboy show with a vengeance.despite being told to turn off phones and other items there were several people in the audience using i-pads to film the event. Lots of people coming in late as usual, walking across everyone's view. The sets and costumes were lavish and the music full on.
They cater for the coach party folk by having sets for Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and India(very Bollywood, that one) for example, that went down well. Contemporary and Traditional music and songs with one brilliantly funny rendition of "Hey Mambo" that saw one of our party getting quite a close-up eyeful of a large busted lady to our delight and hilarity....all in good fun. Ticket prices are 800 and 1000 baht. Go for row "J" in the middle for best view in the 800 baht section, although as the seats are staggered and tiered, you get a good view pretty much anywhere. Ticket price gives you a free soft drink. If you have been to Alcazar or Tiffanys you will enjoy this show. We went to the 18.00 show and then to Momento Beach for dinner

“Another katoyshow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

Yet another katoy show in Pattaya.
I have seen them all and I think this one is the best as it is brand new.
Fantastic building and easy to access on Thapprasit.

“Newest Ladyboy show in Pattaya”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

This is the newest Ladyboy show in Pattaya. The other two are the Alcazar and Tiffany’s. The building is shaped like the Roman Colosseum and holds over 1000 guest. I paid 300 baht for the show because I have a Thai driver license and I get the Thai price. The show is worth it just to see the costumes and sets. After the show you can have your picture taken with your choice of ladyboy for 40 baht. I personally think the ladyboy shows where they imitate singers like Tina Turner and Michael Jackson are more fun and usually free. A bar that still does this is the Malibu in Pattaya. You get a free soft drink with your ticket purchase.

“Great new addition to transvestite shows in Pattaya (Jomtien)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Everyone who has come to Pattaya has been to either Tiffany or Alcazar, the two most famous transvestite cabaret shows in Thailand.
They have a new contender since last year and it is excellent!
The Coloseum opened last year, and during this year's visit we decided to try it out.
The place is actually in Jomtien, on Thepprasit Road, so a lot more quiet then Pattaya, with way easier traffic.
It is also shiny and new, marble halls and a large reception area, where you can relax in a fine airconditioned waiting area. The stage is large with great props, and the actors wear beautiful costumes and it is nice to hear new music, Chinese, Thai, Western and even Russian.
The seats are great, much better then either Tiffany or Alcazar. If you get the VIP seats, you will sit in the first few rows and get a free drink when you arrive.
The crowd is the usual, large number of Chinese, some Russians (not that many yet) and some Westerners. This is really a new place, so many tourgroups seem not to have discovered it yet.
After the show you can take pictures with the performers, which are definitely not shy to be in pictures.
All in all, a very good show, in a beautiful location.
What is a useful tip: buy the tickets at one of the many travel agents. We bought VIP tickets for 600 baht (less then 15 euro) per person. At the Colosseum itself they sell for a 1000. We sat in the second row so had a great view.
