The Act was created by Simon Hammerstein, a New-York-City-nightlife theatre entrepreneur and business partner at Variety Worldwide. The Act Dubai is a unique concept that combines the best of theatre, nightlife and dining venues and provides guests with an original, sophisticated experience.
The 10,000-sq-ft multi-level venue is located on the 42nd floor of Shangri-La Hotel, Dubai, which makes it the highest theatre venue in the world.
The venue's vintage Victorian-theatre design blends seamlessly with its classic fit out and royal blue velvet fabrics and is finished by antique wooden flooring.
A VIP area and exclusive dining tables surround the main stage. In addition, private theatre-themed booths on the first and second levels cater to larger private groups.
