Photo Flash: WHEN PIGS FLY Takes Flight at Actor's Fund Benefit!


Pigs fly! For one-night only. A 2017 planned revival of Howard Crabtree's When Pigs Fly was brought to life at an Actor's Fund benefit concert Monday night!

An Off-Broadway revival of When Pigs Fly was scheduled to play Stage42 in October 2017, but was cancelled due to a shortfall in the show's investment. The originally announced cast and creative team came together for a one-night only concert at John Jay College's Gerald Lynch Theatre. Proceeds from the evening benefited The Actor's Fund.

The concert featured cast members Jordan Ahnquist, Taylor Crousore, Jacob Huffman, Brian Charles Rooney, and Frank Viveros. Mark Waldrop (Divine Miss Millennium tour, NEWSical) directs, with choreography by Denis Jones and featuring costumes by Bob Mackie.

When Howard - a mad genius costume designer with Ziegfeld-sized ambitions - flunks his high-school vocational test (apparently "Broadway superstar" isn't a multiple-choice option for a five-year plan), he puts everything he has into his one true dream: putting on a show! With a song in his heart and some help from his friends, Howard's journey from non-starter to superstar is the larger-than-life, side-splitting party you've been waiting for!
