Missed Connections ATX
Don’t let this hilarious show be the one that got away! Missed Connections ATX is an improvised show inspired by Austin Craigslist Missed Connections ads. Back after a sold-out run of shows in 2017, this hit comedy explores the sentimental, quirky, and downright cringeworthy nature of Austin’s most impersonal personal ads.
Was the girl sipping kombucha at the grocery co-op flirting? Is the barista at your favorite coffee shop friendly, or do you have a romantic connection? Wouldn’t you like to know more about the guy who rides a bike with a parrot on his shoulder? Austinites of all ages and backgrounds are posting on Craigslist Missed Connections hoping to find love.
Missed Connections ATX marries short- and long-form improv structures for a hilarious evening of ensemble-driven comedy. Broken into five distinctive acts, the show begins with scenes inspired directly by the Craigslist Missed Connections ads posted online by your Central Texas neighbors and closes with original, improvised music. If you’ve ever rooted for romance in the face of incredible odds, you’re going to love this show.
