A Man of No Importance

A Man of No Importance

book by Terrence McNally

music and lyrics by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens

June musicals at Farmers Alley Theatre have always given us an opportunity to shine a light on some new or lesser-known work.  Next to Normal, Parade and last year’s Dogfight are just a few titles that we have brought to vivid life.  This year, we bring to the stage our latest “diamond in the rough” – A Man of No ImportanceFrom the songwriting team behind the musical Ragtime, comes the tale of bus driver Alfie Byrne, a man with a secret that he can’t share with anyone but his imagined confidante, Oscar Wilde.  Set in 1964 Dublin with a lush Irish-inspired score, A Man Of No Importance is a rare gem in the canon of musical theater, one which combines the depth and drama of a play with the lyricism and comedy of a musical.
