WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

To avoid being slaughtered by a lunatic farmer, Shirley the cow (a former hooker from Amsterdam), and her transvestite husband Harvey escape to New York's East Village where they soon become all the rage of the high-brow art scene. Back on the farm, the Pig gets wind of their fame and follows to seek his artistic fortunes as well.. Will the elitist critics accept the Pig's trendy conceptual art? Will the psychotic homesteader arrive in time to reclaim his prized hog? Will swine become the new black? This outrageous Fellini-esque satire superimposes the world of contemporary music onto the modern art scene, scorchingly skewering both. Featuring a cast and orchestra of twenty. Music, Book and Lyrics by three-time Grammy nominee David Chesky. Directed by A. Scott Parry of New York City Opera Adult Content No one under 18 admitted.
