Two of the Las Vegas Strip's biggest names are collaborating on a new production, scheduled to open here later this year.

Theater director Franco Dragone—whose past productions include Le Rêve, Cirque du Soleil's O and Mystère and Celine Dion's A New Day—and magician Criss Angel are teaming for Mr. Smiles & Molly, described in a press release as an "interactive immersive euphoria" and a "surreal pre-night club experience."

Dragone further describes it as a "bold fusion between the world of electronic music and theatre," while Angel says, "I believe our first venture will be groundbreaking."

The specific venue has yet to be revealed.
