Featuring a book and lyrics by Waldrop and music by Dick Gallagher, When Pigs Fly is described as follows: "In a hastily booked theater under renovation, Howard struggles to put on a lavish musical revue over numerous obstacles, including the near-mutiny of his cast, and the nagging memory of his high school guidance counselor, who told him he'd succeed 'when pigs fly.' Just when it seems all is lost, Howard realizes the problem isn't that he's gone too far — it's that he hasn't gone far enough."
