Nadine DuBois

Internationally-acclaimed Mistress of Ceremonies and singer, Nadine DuBois travels the world crooning and caressing audiences of burlesque, drag, fashion, music and theatre. A fierce triple-threat and a leader and icon in the modern burlesque movement, she has charmed crowds from The Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, across the USA, and throughout Australia and New Zealand.

Also known as a prolific producer and artistic director, Ms. DuBois has an extensive repertoire. She is the creator and star of her own Follies revue, co-creator of Visions of Sugarplums: A Burlesque Nutcracker; as well as a host of cabarets, theatrical productions, burlesque festivals, and large-scale dance nights in her hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota and throughout the US.

Fueled by bourbon and glitter, she's known as ‘The Good Kind of Bad,’ and she's dedicated to upholding that reputation.

  • "As emcee, DuBois sparkles, taking the audience on an irreverent journey into the Sugarplum forest with a suggestive aside for every interlude. Her charismatic stage presence and comedic timing affords a delectable ride, and she's got a great voice to boot..."

    Sheila Regan, Star Tribune
  • "...United States singer Nadine DuBois brilliantly holds the show together. That subtle change transforms the show into a more cohesive and pure slice of burlesque."
