“When Pigs Fly” Virtual Production by Short North Stage

All Day


When Pigs Fly featuring RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Nina West is an over-the-top musical review by Howard Crabtree featuring songs, sketches, and hilarious avant garde costume designs. The show tells the story of Howard, who is having trouble producing his fantasy musical review because of constant setbacks, a disagreeable cast, and technical problems. In addition, he is haunted by the discouraging words of his high school guidance counselor, Miss Roundhole, who told him he would work in the theater “when pigs fly.” As Howard tries to navigates the evening of skits and songs, he learns that the problem isn’t that he has “gone too far,” but instead has not gone far enough. The show commences with an unbelievable drag showgirl finale reminiscent of Beach Blanket Babylon and Ziegfield’s Follies.
