The theater said Gordon Edlstein was hired a year ago as director of the upcoming play "Satchmo at the Waldorf."
Edlstein was fired yesterday after a New York Times report alleged he forced female employees into unwanted sexual contact while working as artistic director of the Long Wharf Theatre in Connecticut.
Alley Theatre said as soon as they learned of the allegations, he was replaced as director.
Terry Teachout, the playwright who authored "Satchmo," has been tapped to replace Edlstein as director.
The show opens on February 24.
