Reviews

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
