Howard Crabtree’s When Pigs Fly

May 11 - Jun 10, 2018


Told in high school he’d be big in show biz only “when pigs fly,” Howard follows his heart anyway and creates the musical revue of his dreams. What they didn’t know was he has a special talent to transform the most mundane objects - from shower curtains to garden hoses - into a showstopping costume spectacle. Come pig out on this gleefully subversive, over-the-top musical extravaganza!
