Howard Crabtree'S WHEN PIGS FLY, created by Howard Crabtree and Mark Waldrop, with music by the late Dick Gallagher, stars a character namEd Howard (Jordan Ahnquist), not unlike Mr. Crabtree. In a hastily booked theatre under renovation, Howard struggles to put on a lavish musical revue over numerous obstacles, including the near-mutiny of his cast, and the nagging memory of his high school guidance counselor, who told him he'd succeed "when pigs fly." Just when it seems all is lost, Howard realizes the problem isn't that he's gone too far -- it's that he hasn't gone far enough. The show goes on, and all of Howard's fabulously sequined dreams come true.
