Recommended for ages 12 and up
A collection of talented performers each with a particular style combine glam and rock in hilarious fashion. The retro aesthetics of this intimate show make for a quintessentially Parisian cabaret like you've never seen before!
With a touch of lipstick, a dash of Brigitte Bardot, and a handful of glitter and dance, femininity and beauty are represented in all varieties through every facet of movement imaginable. A provocatively comedic performance sure to leave you laughing and clapping along!
Uniting cabaret and cheeky comedy, burlesque saw its glory in Paris throughout the late 19th century, before spreading to all corners of the globe. Making a triumphant return to the Parisian stage in this unique collection of acts, prepare to discover and rediscover the art of burlesque, as this show breathes new life into the age-old Parisian tradition!
The charming master of ceremonies will warm up the audience with a brief introduction of each sketch in French, don't be alarmed, simply sit back and enjoy!
We'll be back!
We had a wonderful evening watching this beautiful show that was both funny and crazy with excellent artists. We will be back to see it again for sure!
We had a wonderful evening seeing this quality show with its terrific artists who knew exactly how to share their dynamic sense of artistry and humour. I highly recommend the Cabaret Burlesque
La Nouvelle Seine
A unique floating theatre in the very heart of Paris! 5 years ago, a team of individuals with varried backgrounds gathered together to create put this unique Parisian venue on the map. La Nouvelle Seine is in fact located on a barge right in the shadow of Notre Dame itself, floating along the banks of the Seine River! Part theatre, part restaurant and bar, this venue is dedicated to one thing: discoveries, whether it be discovering new artistic talents on stage to new culinary experiences. The name itself features a clever play on words, nouvelle scène literally translating to New Scene, featuring all the latest culinary and theatrical talents new to the Paris scene, right on the Seine River!
While the onsite restaurant and bar features a rotating menu of local homemade favorites, the stage always features new upcoming artists, from stand-up comedy to cabaret. Can you think of a better combination than exploring Notre Dame, wandering the Parisian river banks, and heading on in to La Nouvelle Seine to catch a show?
Handicap Accessible? Unfortunately, not at this time.

Is tipping customary?
The Nouvelle Seine is a very small theatre with open seating. It is therefore not expected that you will tip the usher. However, if you feel like rewarding a very nice welcoming host, please note that ushers will usually expect a small tip of between 2€ and 5€, which you can give them when they've shown you to your seat. Fun fact: the French word for “tip” is “pourboire,” which literally translates to “to have a drink.”
