By Terry Johnson, directed by Brad Akin

Fusing fact and fantasy, the plot unravels an unlikely romance between the bombshell and the scientist while challenging stereotypes of the all-star athlete and hate-mongering politician.

In the press

"a first-class production.... a virtuosic performance by Julia Siple.... Alex Gillmor [is] ideal as the tall, lean, gum-popping DiMaggio.... Director Brad Akin keeps the mix of tragedy, comedy and gargantuan ideas in a tight magnetic field.... Highly Recommended." 
- Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
"the performances... all showcase real talent through the crackling onstage chemistry.... Akin has scaled "Insignificance" nicely for Steep's 40-seat space, and each audience member ... is rewarded with a close glimpse of the action.... the ensemble uses a deft touch... mesmerizing.... Recommended - A Must See!"
- Elisabeth Kilpatrick, Centerstage
