Audible Editor Reviews

A rowdy foray into the world of the "canned, canceled, downsized, and dismissed‚" 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.

    "Like its predecessor"

    This too follows the adventures of showbiz personnel and their adventures with employment. This seems to have more production value than the first though that may be more of a strength than a weakness as part of the charm of the original was its off the cuff visceral presentation. All in all an entertaining and charming series of tales.
