The New York premiere of INSIGNIFICANCE, by Tony Award winner Terry Johnson, opens next week at the five-star hotel Langham Place, New York, Fifth Avenue. Check out the photos below for a sneak peek at the cast!

This site-specific production is directed by UK theatre company Defibrillator's Artistic Director James Hillier, and will begin previews on February 19 with an opening night set for February 24. INSIGNIFICANCE will play a strictly limited engagement through March 20.

The play, which takes place in a hotel room in 1953, will be staged entirely within a hotel room on the 5th floor of Langham Place, New York. Audiences will check in at the box office in the lobby and then be whisked off to the 5th floor and into a spacious hotel room.

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."

INSIGNIFICANCE will star Max Baker (Broadway's Jerusalem, "Hail Caesar!"), Anthony Comis (Shafrika, The White Girl), Susannah Hoffman ("House of Cards"), and Michael Pemberton (Broadway's The Farnsworth Invention, Mamma Mia!).
