A musical revue in the old tradition, When Pigs Fly is a grab bag of songs, dances, sketches, and running gags unified by a gay sensibility that combines a love of traditional musical theatre, a taste for outrageous visual humor, and a delight in shameless wordplay. These elements are strung upon the slenderest of plot threads (a mad genius costume designer, putting on the show he's always dreamed of doing); the individual numbers are the meat of the show.

In When Pigs Fly the empty stage becomes a kind of dreamscape populated by the costume designer's fevered imagination. The audience never knows who or what it will see next. A bare-breasted mermaid? A Garden of Eden tableau? Bette Davis as Baby Jane slinging a life-size Joan Crawford rag doll around? They all get into the act. Each freshly revealed character will have something to say, usually through song, that provides a skewed but revelatory reflection of what it is to be gay in the 1990s. Though the spirit is gay  in both senses of the word  the tone is inclusive, and always the tilt is towards the universal. When Pigs Fly is completely accessible to anyone who can appreciate being smart and silly at the same time.
