A MAN OF NO IMPORTANCE • May 4 – June 1, 2025

Book by Terrence McNally
Music by Stephen Flaherty
Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Based on a Film “A MAN OF NO IMPORTANCE”
Directed by Julia Rodriguez-Elliott

This evocative award-winning musical celebrates the redemptive power of theater, love, and friendship. Set in 1960s Dublin, an unassuming bus driver, Alfie Byrne, is determined to stage a production of Oscar Wilde’s Salome with his troupe of amateur players in their local parish. But this man of seemingly no importance is somehow forced into confrontations with religious objections to his artistic pursuits, and pushed into facing the stigma and shame over a love “that dare not speak its name,” on this hard-fought journey of self-discovery.
