‘INSIGNIFICANCE’ TO DEBUT AT LANGHAM PLACE, NEW YORK ON FEBRUARY 19
Theater and hotel nerds get happy! 2015’s Greatest Guest Experience is now heading to New York!
The Defibrillator Theatre Company, the same talented troupe that put on Ben Ellis’ play “The Armour” last spring at The Langham London, is preparing to make their New York debut at Langham Place, Fifth Avenue on February 24.
“Insignificance” by Tony-award winning playwright Terry Johnson, who wrote the play in 1982, is set in a hotel room in the summer of 1953 where four American icons–Joseph McCarthy, Marilyn Monroe, Joe DiMaggio, and Albert Einstein–debate the issues of the day. Defibrillator’s artistic director, James Hiller, is directing the piece. And much like in London, the play will take place in a hotel room, Room 505, a corner suite on the 5th floor.
Previews for the play actually begin on February 19, while opening night will be February 24. Tickets can be purchased at www.InsignificancePlay.com, ranging from $45 to $125. Beverage service is included during intermission. But because the hotel can’t play theater forever, “Insignificance” will only run through March 20.
