Professional reviews

"FIRED AGAIN is a rowdy foray into the world of the "canned, canceled, downsized, and dismissedâ" and, as the sequel to FIRED, is not to be missed. This L.A. Theatre Works audio presentation features author and actress Annabelle Gurwitch and her show business buddies telling stories of who, what, when, where, why, and how they each got fired. The production is a series of personal monologues. Each actor tells his or her own story with great vocal dynamics, strong comic characterizations, and seeming honesty. From Scott Carter's "Remembrance of Porn Past" to Matt Price's "Death of a Knife Salesman," each story is riddled with humor and pathos. In sum, listening to this production suggests that getting fired is often not the worst thing that can happen. M.R.E. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
