A Man of No Importance
Music by Stephen Flaherty
Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Book by Terrence McNally
This musical is a tender tale of love, friendship, and coming to terms with who we are. Set in Ireland, A Man of No Importance is from the same artistic team who created Ragtime and demonstrates the power of theater to create change. Alfie Byrne is a bus driver in 1964 Dublin, whose heart holds secrets that he can't share with anyone but his imagined confidante, Oscar Wilde. When he attempts to produce an amateur production of Wilde's Salome in the local church hall, he confronts the forces of bigotry and shame over a love "that dare not speak its name.” Melodic Irish-flavored orchestrations, depth, drama, and comedy combine in A Man of No Importance.
