ddbtThe bawdy spectacle of burlesque returned to the Twin Ports in 2012 with the formation of the Duluth Dolls. Combining classic burlesque style with a creative and contemporary edge — sometimes referred to as “neo-burlesque” — these glamorous gals promise “oodles of sass, class, love and laughs” with every performance. Alex Jost serves as the troupe’s host, a sort of circus ringmaster who presents dancers by the stage names Velvet Noir, Aurora Borealis, Veronica Vixen, Khaleesi Khaos, Lilly LaRouge, Madame Touché and Nadia Norimi.
