A Man of No Importance

What happens when our deepest secrets are finally revealed? Dublin bus conductor Alfie Byrne is content reading Oscar Wilde poetry to his passengers and staging plays in his local church. But when forced to confront a lifelong secret, Alfie must learn to face his true nature and finally take a stand in the world.

With a powerful story and a stunning score by the team who brought Ragtime to the musical stage, A Man of No Importance celebrates the genius of Oscar Wilde, the boisterous streets of Dublin, and the bumps along the road to self-discovery.


Music by Stephen Flaherty, lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, and book by Terrence McNally
