Leslie Caveny's comedy Love of a Pig began performances at the 45th Street Theatre on October 12, running through October 28. D.H. Johnson directs the show, which is presented by The Cardinal Group, Jeffrey Schulman, and Richard Pepenella. A portion of the proceeds go to The Olivieri Center for Homeless Women.

"Love of a Pig is a fast moving comedy about Jenny, a twenty-something jazz violinist content with life except when it comes to the opposite sex. Having calculated the number of nights spent alone since becoming an adult, Jenny scientifically approaches the question, Why not me? When her 'Mr. Right' comes along, everything seems to go wrong, and a new self examination begins. Love of a Pig is a hilarious tour de force of dating, courting and kvetching," describe press notes.

Featuring: Steven Strobel, Marie C. Anderson, Michael Ferrell, Jenny Greer, David Nelson, Ginny Lee, Aaron Davis, and Dana Brooke as Jenny

Performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 8PM and Sundays at 7PM. The 45th Street Theatre is located at 354 W. 45th St. (bet. 8th & 9th Ave). Tickets are$15 and can be purchased online at or by phone at (212) 868-4444.
