PigPen Theatre Co., responsible for this season's new musical Water For Elephants', will play a two-performance residency in New York City later this spring. 

The company will debut Trunk Songs: PigPen Theatre Co. at City Winery on May 17, with a second performance June 4. Tickets will go on sale on April 26 at 12 PM. The concert will feature deep cuts from the group's catalog, as well as brand new music.

Said PigPen, “A few weeks ago, we made our Broadway debut as composers and lyricists of Water For Elephants, fulfilling one of the many dreams we’ve collectively shared since we met as students at Carnegie Mellon 17 years ago. Now to celebrate, we’re throwing a big party and you’re all invited. City Winery is hosting us for two nights to play two concerts of favorites, deep cuts, new tunes from an upcoming album, and whatever else catches our eye while we're digging through the trunk!”

PigPen Theatre Co. began creating their unique blend of theatre, music, and film as freshmen at the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama in 2007. They have since performed, produced, and licensed their original plays in New York City and all over the world.

In 2018, PigPen announced that they were creating two stage musicals based on beloved novels: The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo (in partnership with Universal Theatrical Group) and Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen (in collaboration with Rick Elice). The Tale of Despereaux world premiered at The Old Globe in the summer of 2019 and transferred to Berkeley Repertory Theatre to close out the year. Water For Elephants opened on Broadway at the Imperial Theatre on March 21.
