My overall impression

Lovers of musical theater and theater in general MUST go see the rarely-produced “A Man of No Importance” at Fringe. The amateur theater troupe play-within-a-play is reminiscent of …Guffman, but the story, music, voices and heart is beautiful beyond belief. Kudos to Janet Miller’s heartfelt direction, Corey Hirsch’s amazing band and the beautiful performances of friends Gail Matthius, Keith Barletta, Shirley Hatton and all the others.

The Lillian Theater’s atmosphere made for the perfect setting, and no surprise that Kathy Gillespie’s costumes were top notch. So were Rebecca Schroeder’s “Guinness pints!” And it’s FUNNY too! Especially Gail, not surprisingly… My heartily audibly laugh could be heard throughout the show, and at one point, I even let out a loud and high-pitched “HA!” Seriously… GO SEE IT!!
