Theatre for the Rest of Us

As the theatre world shifts online, it seems only natural that its subject matter would go virtual as well. do you want what i have got? a craigslist cantata is a bright, musical and enduringly unique virtual performance that takes a look at the lives we live online when we think nobody’s watching.

Perhaps no website better reflects the human experience than Craigslist, a forum that highlights people at their weirdest, their kindest and their most vulnerable. The Cultch theatre company uses rough Craigslist postings to present vignettes of life under social isolation through song, dance and performance. Watch it online from the best couch in the house.

Feb. 5-7, $29 (group rates available), thecultch.com/event/a-craigslist-cantata
