Las Vegas is preparing for a new style of nightclub with the announcement that The ACT will open at The Shoppes at The Palazzo this October.

Created by theatrical producer Simon Hammerstein (well known as one of the creative partners on The Box in New York City), The ACT promises a blend of crazy theatrical performances, audience participation and nightclub partying. It’s all one big act – get it.

“The ACT is a new variety of nightlife where the audience parties onstage, the shows explode into the club, and everyone gets caught in The ACT,” says Hammerstein.

The ACT is taking over a 15,000-square-foot space in The Shoppes at The Palazzo. Located above the waterfall atrium, it will incorporate aesthetic designs inspired by an Italian opera house, European cathedrals, New York City’s Grand Central Station Post Office and a 1920s speakeasy.

No word on what acts will be featured in the new nightlife experience, but if it’s similar to The Box in New York City think wicked vaudeville – burlesque beauties, on- the-edge acrobatic performers, singers, fringe acts and more. Check out this video of the New York City shows here –

An official opening date has not been announced, though rumors of Oct. 31 abound. The ACT has announced that its hours will be Wednesday through Saturday from 10:30 p.m. to 4 a.m.
