January 30-March 3, 2013

A co-production with Factory Theatre.

Having sold-out its extended run at Vancouver’s PuSh Festival in Jan 2012, this original musical by Veda Hille & Bill Richardson sets actual Craigslist postings to music in a 90 minute song-cycle. Both hilarious and surprisingly poignant, Do You Want What I Have Got? explores contemporary humanity through the lens of Craigslist—an online classified site with over 50 million ads posted each month.

A hilarious, quirky, touching and tuneful show… This could be Canadian musical theatre’s next killer app.

– J. Kelly Nestruck, Globe and Mail

Offbeat and entertaining, with a refreshingly high sophistication in the writing… What you get are a series of actual Craigslist postings which Hille has set to some delightfully tuneful music.

– Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star

Monica Dottor’s choreography is lively and imaginative with inspired directorial touches by Amiel Gladstone… The ensemble is across-the-board terrific.

– Glenn Sumi, NOW Magazine

A whimsical, wistful portrait of desire in the internet age.

One of the most imaginative Canadian musicals to come along in decades!

Side-splittingly funny… The cast as a whole are outstanding.

Another great production from Acting Up Stage Company.

Fast paced, beautifully staged… this musical has something for everyone.

A blissful musical destination to observe all things beguiling and bizarre… Delightfully silly and enourmously entertaining.

Let your imagination run rampant!

This show is intoxicating, wildly creative, wonderfully witty and just downright fun.
