A Ten-Minute Musical

An ten-minute musical by Eric Matthew Richardson about a real-life Chicago icon

Pigasus follows one small pig from farm to fame as he’s shepherded along by an opportunistic Yuppie. The short musical tells the (mostly) true story of an unsung Chicago icon.

Book, music, and lyrics by Eric Matthew Richardson. Developed at Chicago Dramatists and selected as part of the 2020 Chicago Musical Theatre Festival in partnership with Underscore Theatre Company.
