Wonderfully witty, and just downright fun, A Craigslist Cantata is a chamber musical exploring contemporary humanity through online classified ads. A window on the collective psyche, Craigslist spins a tapestry of song, dance and monologue that is profound and outrageous. The pitch-perfect cast sings verbatim ads from the Internet that express longing, hunger, humour and unexpected tenderness. From fleeting lust on public transit to a child-sized guillotine, there is something for everyone in this show - just like on craigslist.

Do You Want What I Have Got? A Craigslist Cantata received 2013 Dora Mavor Moore Award nominations for ‘Outstanding Musical Production’, ‘Outstanding Performance – Ensemble (Musical)’, ‘Outstanding Direction (Musical)’, and ‘Outstanding Choreography (Musical).’

“M or F looking for a hilarious, quirky, touching, tuneful show? Well, Google no further.”
