NEW YORK — A play that imagines what it might have been like had Marilyn Monroe, Albert Einstein, Joe DiMaggio and Sen. Joe McCarthy met in a hotel room in 1953 will make its New York debut next month — in a hotel room.
The innovative British based theater company Defibrillator will present Terry Johnson's "Insignificance" in a suite at the five-star hotel Langham Place in midtown Manhattan. Previews begin Feb. 19.
Audiences — as many as 60 audience members might be accommodated per showing — will check in at a box office in the lobby and then be taken to the fifth floor and into a spacious hotel room designed to evoke the 1950s. Nearby will be a room converted into a bar offering drinks and entertainment of the era.
