Gurwitch show ‘Fired’ up again

Off B'way production gets sequel

Annabelle Gurwitch’s Off Broadway hit “Fired!” now has a sequel, “Fired Again!,” which will have its world premiere May 3-7 at Los Angeles’ Skirball Center in an L.A. Theater Works production.

Gurwitch’s book “Fired! Tales of the Canned, Canceled, Downsized and Dismissed” grew out of her play, itself spawned by her firing from a Woody Allen play. A docu film based on the making of “Fired!” preemed at this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival.

At the Skirball, Ron West directs a revolving cast that includes thesps Tonya Pinkins, Jeff Kahn, Dani Klein and Jane Edith Wilson; writer-producers Scott Carter and Maxine Lapiduss; playwright-actor Stephen Adly Guirgis; actor-writer Matt Price; scribes Rob Cohen, Lori Gottlieb and Jonathan Groff; and actor-writer-producer John Lehr.
