Music by Stephen Flaherty
Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Based on a film  A Man of No Importance
Directed by Rod A. Lansberry

Regional Premiere featuring Colorado’s Legendary Irish-Folk Band Colcannon

It’s 1964 in a working-class neighborhood of Dublin. Oscar Wilde devotee, Alfie Byrne has ambitions to perform Wilde’s  Salome  with his amateur theater troupe in the local church hall; however, Alfie doesn’t realize the controversy his choice of title will create with the church leaders. With the play opening in jeopardy, Alfie turns to someone he thought was a friend, only to be confronted by anger and rejection. The theater troupe stands beside him and helps Alfie find his place in the world. 

A Man of No Importance  combines Irish-inspired folk music with the depth of a well-written play. Join us for this lyrical musical from the Tony Award-winning team who brought you  Ragtime .
