Jim Parsons is returning to the stage! The Emmy Award-winning actor will star in the musical A Man of No Importance at Classic Stage Company, kicking off the theatre's fall season. Performances run from October 11 to December 4, with an opening night on October 30.

Parsons was last seen on the New York stage in The Boys in the Band on Broadway in 2018, and he reprised his role of Michael in the 2020 Netflix film adaptation. His other stage credits include An Act of God, Harvey, and The Normal Heart. On screen, Parsons is best known for starring as Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory for all of its 12 seasons, earning four Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe Award.

He now plays Alfie Byrne in A Man of No Importance, a musical about a theatre troupe in 1960s Dublin. Alfie, a bus driver, leads the troupe, which pushes to perform Oscar Wilde's Salome, defying the objections of church authorities. The musical features a book by the late Terrence McNally, music by Stephen Flaherty, and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens. John Doyle directs.

Additional casting for A Man of No Importance has yet to be announced.
