Jim Parsons to Star in A MAN OF NO IMPORTANCE at Classic Stage Company This Fall

Classic Stage Company announced today that Jim Parsons will lead the cast of their fall production of A Man of No Importance, portraying Alfie Byrne.

Featuring a book by Terrence McNally, music by Stephen Flaherty, and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, A Man of No Importance will be the final CSC production directed by John Doyle following his tenure as Artistic Director. A Man of No Importance will begin performances on Tuesday, October 11, with opening night set for Sunday, October 30 for a limited run through Sunday, December 4.

A Man of No Importance is produced by special arrangement with Tom Kirdahy and Mara Isaacs. Further casting will be announced in the coming weeks.

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