Coronado Playhouse presents A Man of No Importance
A Man of No Importance is a rare gem of a musical that combines the depth and drama of a play with the lyricism and comedy of a musical.
Dublin. 1964. Meet Alfie Byrne, a bus conductor with a poet’s heart. In the morning he dispenses tickets and Oscar Wilde’s poetry to his passengers. After work, St. Imelda’s amateur theatricals are his passion. But his 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, he confronts the forces of bigotry and shame over a love “that dare not speak its name.” Truths tumble out, and judgments fly. But when the accounts of friendship are reckoned, Alfie’s true goodness, and his quiet philosophy—“you just have to love who you love”—wins out.
