A Man of No Importance & Jersey Boys

Casa Mañana 3101 W. Lancaster Ave., Fort Worth, 817-332-2272, casamanana.org

Casa Mañana’s Broadway series continues with A Man of No Importance and Jersey Boys.

Based on the film of the same name, A Man of No Importance revolves around acceptance and what a wonderful thing it is to “love who you love.” Bus driver Alfie Byrne will only share secrets with an imaginary confidante, Oscar Wilde. During his attempt to stage an amateur production of Wilde’s Salome in a local church hall, Byrne faces bigotry and shame over a love “that dare not speak its name.” Through the power of theater, Byrne finds his life changed and friendships renewed. Intended for mature audiences.

Jersey Boys takes audiences behind the music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. The quartet built a friendship over 40 years while working their way from the streets of New Jersey to stardom. Chart-topping hits such as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” are included in the show. Jersey Boys won both the Tony Award and the Olivier Award for Best Musical.

A Man of No Importance – Aug. 4-6
