A new interactive comedy in which the audience bids on unusual art auction items.

... Read more

This theatrical event is a parody of the prestigious world of art auctions. Chump’s Auction House is an unscrupulous world populated by engaging scoundrels. The audience is pulled into the action as the story and intrigue of the famous Auction House unfolds. The show culminates with a rollicking auction and the audience members are the patrons. The bidders actually take home the “objets d'art".

New York Critic Blog

"There’s a bit of a story here, a type of structure, but it’s sketchy. The activity of the auction doesn’t substitute for a framing device. And the period before the auction itself begins, interesting as it is for a while, lasts too long without the show’s central business to engross us. In all, Going Once! Laughing Twice!!, is fun, creative and flawed." Full Review

Stage Buddy

"Jaffe and Parness have a swell foundation for a great evening, but some serious adjustments to both script and performances are vital.  Without them, it's a case of going, going, gone." Full Review

Truly Net

"A pretty traditionally staged play. It feels fairly spontaneous and light, but never quite gels, with romantic relationships appearing out of nowhere and no real narrative drive. There’s emotion and some witty dialogue but you’ll likely find your attention wandering a bit." Full Review
