‘Going, Going, Gone’ at the IndyFringe Theatre, Dec. 2

Ed’s Auction House opens for business again on Dec. 2, 2012, this time with a former Broadway actor joining one of the show’s co-creators onstage in the live auction comedy “Going…Going…Gone.”

Lynn Stafford has appeared on Broadway in “The 1940s Radio Hour,” off-Broadway in “The Fantastiks,” and in numerous regional theatres across the U.S. The Indianapolis native is a graduate of the Indiana University School of Music and the Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music and president of the management consulting firm LS Stafford & Associates. Indianapolis writer and PR consultant John Thomas collaborated with Lou Harry to create “Going…Going…Gone” for the 2012 Indy Fringe Festival, but this is the first time either Thomas or Harry have appeared in the show.

After attracting sellout crowds at the 2012 Indianapolis Theatre Fringe Festival, “Going…Going…Gone” opened earlier this year as a monthly show at the Indy Fringe Basile Theatre. Created and produced by Two First Name Productions – aka, Harry and Thomas – “Going…Going…Gone” is featured at 7 p.m. on the first Sunday of each month.

The show takes place on the final night at Ed’s Auction House. Ed’s dead, and those close to him face the task of selling off his last worldly possessions. How? By having the audience bid using fake money they received when they entered the theatre.

The action unfolds as the actors learn along with the audience what items must be auctioned off – and create the stories behind those items. The best part? Audience members who place winning bids take their purchases home.

Some of Indy’s best and gutsiest talents – including actors you’ve seen at the Indiana Repertory Theatre, Actors Theatre of Indiana and the Phoenix Theatre – have signed on. And, as they did at the Fringe Festival, audience members likely will make repeat visits to see how different actors manage the madness. After all, it’s never the same show twice.
