After sold-out and critically acclaimed runs in Hollywood, New York, San Francisco, London and Edinburgh Fringe, TILDA SWINTON ANSWERS AN AD ON CRAIGSLIST is back for a limited time in Los Angeles.

TILDA SWINTON ANSWERS AN AD ON CRAIGSLIST stars Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Instagram sensation Tom Lenk as iconic actress Tilda Swinton, a modern day Mary Poppins who finds a depressed gay man on Craigslist and insists on dissecting his life as part of a character study for her next big movie role.
