Hotel as theatre
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 theatre company Defibrillator will present Terry Johnson’s ?Insignificance? in a suite at the five-star hotel Langham Place in Manhattan. Previews begin February 19, Associated Press reported.
Audiences ? up to 60 audience 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.
