A Western Canada tour of our hit production from last season. 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. Stuffed penguins, decapitated dolls and love for sale.

set and costume design
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.
– Martin Morrow, The Grid
One of the most imaginative Canadian musicals to come along in decades!
– Christopher Hoile, Stage Door
Side-splittingly funny… The cast as a whole are outstanding.
– Drew Rowsome, FAB Magazine
Another great production from Acting Up Stage Company.
– Sam Mooney, Mooney on Theatre
Fast paced, beautifully staged… this musical has something for everyone.
– Lauren Gillett, Theatromania
A blissful musical destination to observe all things beguiling and bizarre… Delightfully silly and enourmously entertaining.
– Steven Berketo, Torontostage.com
Let your imagination run rampant!
– Lynn Slotkin, The Slotkin Letter
This show is intoxicating, wildly creative, wonderfully witty and just downright fun.
– Nicole Fairbairn, The Scene in Toronto
An eccentric hit that knows how to give a good time while having one itself.
– Keith Garebian, Stage and Page
