By: Feb. 24, 2016

Tony Award-winner Terry Johnson's INSIGNIFICANCE, presented by the acclaimed UK-based theater company Defibrillator, opens tonight, February 24, 2016 for a strictly limited engagement through March 20, 2016. The play, which takes place in a hotel room in 1953, is staged entirely within a hotel room on the fifth floor of the five-star hotel Langham Place, New York, Fifth Avenue. Check out the photos below for a first look at the cast in action!

This site-specific production is directed by Defibrillator's Artistic Director James Hillier, and stars Max Baker as "The Professor," Anthony Comis as "The Ballplayer," Susannah Hoffman as "The Actress," and Michael Pemberton as "The Senator."

On a summer night in 1953, four American icons - a senator, a film actress, a star athlete and the world's most renowned physicist - gather in a hotel room to discuss and debate power, sex and politics. From the atom bomb to America's favorite pastime, INSIGNIFICANCE explores the nature of fame and living in a Post-War America through the lens of Joseph McCarthy, Marilyn Monroe, Joe DiMaggio, and Albert Einstein in what The Guardian called one of the "landmark plays of the 80s."
