GOING ONCE! LAUGHING TWICE Begins 9/25 Off-Broadway

GOING ONCE! LAUGHING TWICE!!, a new comedy by Brian Jaffe and directed by Eric Parness, is set to make its Off-Broadway premiere this fall at St. Luke's Theatre in the heart of the Theatre District. Performances begin September 25th with the official Opening Night on Wednesday, October 15th.

This theatrical event is a hilarious interactive parody of the prestigious world of art auctions. Go behind the scenes at Chump's Auction House, an unscrupulous world featuring an array of engaging scoundrels. Collect your bidding paddles & fortune in Chump Money at the door and then join in the auction: you can bid, laugh and (possibly) get swindled! The lucky high bidders actually take home the "objets d'artes."

Featured in the cast of GOING ONCE! LAUGHING TWICE!! are Marlain Angelides (Lautrec, Hair), Elaine Baez (Greenback Boogie), Breena Beck (Starting Here, Starting Now at Emerson Stage), Ben Cole ("Unforgettable," Cock, The Motherf**ker With the Hat), Daniel Damiano (The Puppetmaster of Lodz, I Have Been Here Before), Wes Drummond (Make Me Love You, Kiss Me Kate), Deborah Frost (The Dirtiest Show in Town, Opening Night), Brian Jaffe (Off the Wall, Skitzofrenia), Winston Shaw (North to Maine, Bombshell Baby!), and Scott Martin Watson ("Redrum," Zombie Apocalypse).

GOING ONCE! LAUGHING TWICE!! will be performed Thursdays at 7 PM and Fridays at 8 PM at St. Luke's Theatre, 308 West 46th Street (just west of Eighth Ave.) Tickets are $69.50 and are available through or by calling 212-239-6200.
