Brick Road Theatre will present A MAN OF NO IMPORTANCE, the 2003 Outer Critics Circle Best Musical Award recipient, on May 5th-13th, 2017. The Tony Award-winning trio behind RAGTIME writes the show: Terrance McNally (Book), Stephen Flaherty (music) and Lynn Ahrens (lyrics).
A MAN OF NO IMPORTANCE was developed from the 1994 film of the same name and tells the story of Alfie Byrne, a bus driver in 1964 Dublin, whose heart holds secrets that he can't share with anyone but his imagined confidante, Oscar Wilde. When he attempts to put on an amateur production of Wilde's SALOME in the local church hall, he confronts the forces of bigotry and shame over a love "that dare not speak its name." But the redemptive power of theatre changes his life and brings his friends back to his side.
Dallas icon B.J. Cleveland leads the stellar cast as Alfie Bryne.
