Do You Want What I Have Got? A Craigslist Cantata

Wow, who knew there were so many musicals in this city, eh? LOVING IT :-D This one sounds hysterical!!!!

Playing @ the Revue Stage from April 18 – May 18, 2013.

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND—LAST TIME, 24 SHOWS SOLD OUT!

Presented with the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival
By Bill Richardson and Veda Hille

Your personal ads, set to music!

Irregular hats for cats, mounted lobsters, autographed copies of the Bible: this premiere from composer Veda Hille and the CBC’s Bill Richardson explores what humanity has to offer and turns it into sidesplitting musical fare. Who wouldn’t want a broken time machine, for free? Come and take a look at the vagaries and intimacies of the internet!

    To be honest, I was a tad disappointed with this show. Maybe it was all the hype about it being a "sell out", "amazing" etc... but it kinda let me down :-( There were definitely some great laughs, but definitely not all the way through. The actors were pretty good -- except what was with the darker-haired lady? Laryngitis? Rocker chick? Or simply no talent? Okay, that's a bit harsh, she did have her moments -- especially as the spell-checker ;-) Best part of the night? Hanging out with an awesome group of people beforehand (though sorry for the mediocre food!) :-D

    The actors were talented but the show lacked the humour I expected.

    Bummer, the Backstage Lounge don't take reservations... no worries though, as the nice guy who fielded my call assures me we won't have a problem getting a table for 7 or 8 people tomorrow night around 6pm. Yay!! I'll try to rock up a few minutes early to grab us a good spot :-) See you all there!!

    I'll be there for dinner. May be a little fashionably late, but I'll make it :-)

    Hi there, sounds like a good plan. I will be at the dentist in the afternoon and will be still frozen when I get there, but should be there around 6ish for at least a drink.

    Hey peeps! With the Revue Stage right next door to the Backstage Lounge (1585 Johnston), how about we head there on Tuesday night? I'll book us a table of 8 (even though there's only 7 of us going ;-) ) for 6pm, under my name. See you all there!! :-)

      Be there as soon as I can, perhaps a little later than 6.

      May 13, 2013

    • Beck

      No rush. Some others can't make it at 6pm either, so it's all good! It should only take about 30 seconds to walk from the restaurant to the theatre and another 60 seconds to find our seats ;-)

      May 13, 2013

  • Jenny S

    I will be there a little after 6, as I have an appointment in downtown until 6pm. See you!

    Hello hello! Well, it's almost time for this show... wahoo!! And with 7 of us going, let's see if we can't organise a dinner before the show as well :-) How about we meet somewhere on Granville Island at 6pm? The show's at 7.30pm. Any suggestions for where we could eat, bearing in mind we may have some vegos and some people who don't eat seafood? :-)

      Oh, there's also the BACKSTAGE LOUNGE... don't know if their food is any good though, lol. Anyone been before? Decent prices, good variety, cheap beer, prices include tax... www.thebackstagelounge.c­om/menus

      May 9, 2013

    • Beck

      Well, looks like we have some options (thanks for your chip-ins, Doug and Jenny!) :-) What takes the fancy of others?

    Hi Zaynab! I see you just RSVPd for this show... awesome!! A group of us are going on May 14 (we already have our tickets) -- really hope you can join us! Tickets are easily obtainable through artsclub.com :-)

    April 29, 2013

    • Beck

      Wicked news!! 'scuse the pun ;-) We usually try to meet up for dinner before the shows, so I'll definitely keep you (and everyone else) posted on possibilities :-) So great you can join us on the 14th!!

    I've just added a date to this Meet Up -- May 14 (that's for when we have tix). But please note this show is running from April 18 until May 18, inclusive.

    March 9, 2013

  • Beck

    Tickets have been purchased! Tuesday, May 14 @ 7.30pm. So that's for Doug, Regina and me. Plus two other friends of mine will be joining us. Wahoo!! Tickets were $35 each -- second row, right in the middle. Nice :-) Would be great to arrange reimbursement whenever you both have a spare moment to catch up. Cheers!

    March 9, 2013

  • Regina

    may 14th sounds good to me...

    March 6, 2013

  • Doug Beaton

    May 14th sounds good to me!

    March 6, 2013

  • Jenny S

    Beck, my job situation is changing so I can't commit to a date. Go forward without me on this one.

    March 6, 2013

  • Beck

    Update!! After chatting with various peeps, it looks like we're down to the following possibilities that would work for the majority of us:

    --> Tuesday, April 30 or Tuesday, May 14 <--

    Doug, Jenny and Regina, can you make either of these nights? I'm thinking the 14th........................... :-)

    March 6, 2013

  • Regina

    my first choice would be a saturday matinee, my second choice is a Tuesday night, and my third would be the friday

    March 4, 2013

  • Doug Beaton

    Out of those dates, I'd probably vote for Friday 4/26 or Tuesday 4/30. Booking tickets this far in advance always makes me want to pick the earlier dates.

    March 3, 2013

  • Beck

    Okay, so taking into account everyone's preferences so far, we're left with the following possibilities:

    Friday 4/26 (8pm)
    Saturday 4/27 (2pm/8pm)
    Monday 4/29 (7.30pm)
    Tuesday 4/30 (7.30pm)

    Monday 5/13 (7.30pm)
    Tuesday 5/14 (7.30pm)
    Friday 5/17 (8pm)
    Saturday 5/18 (2pm/8pm)

    I'm quite partial to a Saturday matinee... else the Tuesday night performances.

    Thoughts?

    February 28, 2013

  • Regina

    at this stage, May is pretty good, would prefer not to do a Thursday

    February 25, 2013

  • Doug Beaton

    I can't do May 3rd. Otherwise I'm generally good any day except Wednesdays and Thursdays. If there are different ticket prices, I'm cool with anything!

    February 23, 2013

  • Beck

    Hey peeps! I know this show doesn't start for just under another couple of months... but it's also been really popular in the past and I was hoping to get the tickets for it kinda soon :-) So I'm wondering what days/dates might work best for people? I won't be back in the country until after April 22, and another friend who wants to join us is thinking to see this show after her exams on April 24, so any time after that should work for us. Let me know what's best for you and I'll grab the tickets! So far I see that Doug and Jenny are interested :-) Cheers!

  • Doug Beaton

    I missed this the first two times it came around, but heard it was awesome. Sign me up!

    January 29, 2013

  • Beck

    I can't go until after April 22, but I am totally going!! :-)
