Do You Want What I Have Got? A Craigslist Cantata

I finally checked out this local musical the other night at Granville Island. Back for another run is this homegrown show that has truly made its mark on the musical theatre scene. Written by Veda Hille, Bill Richardson, and Amiel Gladstone, Do You Want What I Have Got has combed over ads from Craigslist and come up with the most amusing and bizarre posts and then set them to catchy music.

If you're looking for a full on musical with a storyline, then this will not be your cup of tea. If however, you are seeking a fun filled musical revue that features some of the craziest ads you've ever heard, then definitely head on down to this production for a good and hearty laugh! The singers and musicians were all fabulous as well, and brought to the show a feeling of desperation and loneliness, highlighting the ads that are seeking love or attention. In the end, aren't we all hoping someone will notice us?
