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.

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.

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

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