KU Theatre opened its fall season with the 2002 musical “A Man of No Importance.”
The show follows an irishman in the 1960s and how the theatre helps him find his inner truth.
To the director, the show is more than just dance numbers and costumes.
“I think the show is really important at the moment because we’re in a cultural moment where there’s a lot division,” director Lusie Cuskey said. “This show is very much about a group of people who think differently and who try really hard to work together in spite of that.”
The show addresses LGBTQ issues and how the church and the community confront it.
