According to a statement from Simon Hammerstein, the mastermind behind The Act’s performances, his Variety Worldwide may not be done with Las Vegas just yet. “Hammerstein is already being approached with considerable interest in developing new projects in Las Vegas,” according to Variety’s statement.
The decision to shutter The Act on Saturday was made by VV Ventures, which operated the Palazzo nightspot. Variety didn’t find out about it until Sunday morning, after the deed was done. The other Act nightclub is still operating in Dubai, which means that we’re getting out-saucied by a town that frowns on drinking, sex and dancing.
Variety also is involved with The Box clubs in New York and London, as well as Kazino and the upcoming Diamond Horseshoe in the former. A new project in Los Angeles will bow in the fall.
