“When Pigs Fly” Returns For Benefit

The Actors Fund has announced a one night benefit concert of last year’s planned off-Broadway revival of When Pigs Fly, that never actually got to play for an audience. The concert, which will reunite the cast members and creative team for one night only, is set for Monday, April 9th. The benefit will feature originally announced cast members Jordan Ahnquist, Taylor Crousore, Jacob Huffman, Brian Charles Rooney, and Frank Viveros. Mark Waldrop (Divine Miss Millennium tour, NEWSical) will direct, with choreography by Denis Jones and featuring costumes by Bob Mackie. This benefit will raise money for The Actors Fund, the human services organization that helps everyone in entertainment and performing arts. The event will take place at the Gerald Lynch Theatre at John Jay College (524 West 59th Street) in New York.

Conceived by Waldrop and the late costume designer and playwright Howard Crabtree, with music by Dick Gallagher and lyrics by Waldrop, When Pigs Fly is a raucous, joyful, and unapologetically outrageous romp “with zip, zing, and plenty of pizzazz!” An Off-Broadway revival was scheduled to play Stage42 in October 2017, but was cancelled due to a shortfall in the show’s investment.
