Meet gossip columnists MR. & MRS. FITCH. When the social circuit no longer provides any scandalous news, they find that great celebrity can appear out of thin air. Tony Award nominee Douglas Carter Beane's wicked new comedy is a scathing look at who is in, who is out and who may not even exist at all.
MR. & MRS. FITCH features scenic design by Allen Moyer, costume design by Jeff Mahshie, and lighting design by Kenneth Posner.
The World Premiere production of MR. & MRS. FITCH is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
