Want to rent a cheap sublet? Looking to sell that accordion you never play? Do you keep applying for that dream job only to be brutally rebuffed by the Internet’s cold silence? Maybe you should try going offline and heading to the theater instead. For the voyeur in all of us, Kidnapped by Craigslist—a new comedy about the quasi-religious fervor surrounding the online forum—burrows deep into the phenomena by taking actual neurotic Craigslist postings and blending them with scripted dialogue and musical numbers. A man seeking a roommate for himself and his 14 cats? Check. A woman who needs to be rescued from her bedroom? Check. We’re already laughing just thinking about it.
