Lynn Ahrens, Stephen Flaherty, and Terrence McNally’s acclaimed musical, A Man of No Importance tells the story of an amateur theater group in 1960s Dublin and their leader, bus driver Alfie Byrne.

Determined to stage a production of Oscar Wilde’s Salome despite the objections of local church authorities, Alfie confronts the forces of bigotry and shame over a love “that dare not speak its name.”

This evocative and award-winning musical illustrates the redemptive power of theater, love, and friendship, all for a man of seemingly no importance.

Interpreters: Mary Darragh MacLean, Craig Fogel, Zak Taylor
Interpreter Director: Dax Fudenske
