Event Description

Our universal need to be remembered is the underlying theme of a behind-the-scenes baseball comedy by Ken Levine, an Emmy Award-winning writer (Cheers, M*A*S*H, The Simpsons), acclaimed sportscaster and former host of Dodger Talk. The world premiere of Going... Going... GONE! runs Oct. 1 through Nov. 6 at the Hudson Guild Theatre in Hollywood.

Set in the press box of a major Los Angeles baseball stadium, Going... Going... GONE! is a poignant and hilarious new comedy about four sports journalists whose lives are changed during the course of one game.

“The characters are all loosely based on people I know,” says Levine. “These folks are working in a world that celebrates milestones above all else. They are wrestling with time, wondering what their legacy will be.”

Levine has married comedy and sports before: for a baseball episode of The Simpsons, he and writing partner David Isaacs had the announcer nickname the local team “The Isoptopes” — a moniker later appropriated and still used by a minor league team in Albuquerque, NM. “So I ended up naming a real baseball team,” he laughs.

“Ken is writing from a very personal perspective,” says director Andrew Barnicle. “He understands what it means to be locked in a room for hours with a group of very smart sports journalists who can give as good as they get, and whose one shared experience is a love of the game.”

Ken Levine is an Emmy winning writer/major league baseball announcer. In a career that has spanned over 30 years, Ken has been the head writer of M*A*S*H*, producer of Cheers, creative consultant of Frasier and Wings, and has co-created three of his own series including Almost Perfect that starred Nancy Travis for CBS from 1995-1996. In addition to the Emmy, he’s won two Writers Guild Awards and has had Peabody and Humanitas recognition. As a sportscaster, Ken hosted Dodger Talk on the Los Angeles Dodgers Radio Network for eight years.

Going... Going... GONE!runs Oct. 1 through Nov. 6 with performances on Fri. and Sat. at 8 p.m. and Sun. at 3 p.m. Hudson Guild Theatre, 6539 Santa Monica Blvd., LA CA 90038. For information and to purchase tickets, call (323) 960-5521 or go to www.plays411.com/gone
