About this show

The season will close with a main-stage production of the musical, A Man Of No Importance with book by Terrence McNally and music and lyrics by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens. Written by the creative team behind Ragtime and Once on this Island, and based on the film starring Albert Finney, this moving musical tells the story of Alfie Byrne, a closeted bus conductor and Oscar Wilde devotee, in 1964 Dublin. As he leads his amateur theatre troupe toward a production of Wilde's Salome at the local church, he struggles to find acceptance, not only from his sister, co-workers, the church, and the world-at-large, but within himself. His quiet anthem, stating simply, "You just have to love who you love," is a remarkable message for our time.
