A musical with heart and soul, and a touch of pure Irish lyricism

More Information about the Show:

A MAN OF NO IMPORTANCE is a rare gem in the canon of musical theatre, one which combines the depth and drama of a play with the lyricism and comedy of a musical. This is the second successful collaboration by the team of Terrence McNally, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, all of whom won Tony Awards for Ragtime. The score is a contemporary one infused with Irish charm and includes soaring ballads and toe-tapping ensemble numbers.

It tells the story of Alfie Byrne, a bus driver in 1964 Dublin, whose heart holds secrets he can’t share with anyone but his imagined confidante, Oscar Wilde. When Alfie attempts to put on 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”. But the redemptive power of theatre changes his life and brings his friends back to his side. Winner of the 2003 Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, A Man of No Importance is a tender and beautifully woven tale of love, friendship and coming to terms with who we are.
