THE STORY: Meet gossip columnists Mr. and Mrs. Fitch. When the social circuit no longer provides juicy morsels, when the pressure to create news in our never-ending news cycle becomes just a bit much, it's time to toss back the martinis, toss around the bon mots and realize that great celebrity can just appear out of thin air. This wicked, urbane comedy is a scathing look at who is in, who is out and who may not even exist at all.
"Mr. Beane is the American theater's best living exponent of the exploding epigram." —NY Times. "A riotous deep dive into the shallow waters of gossip. Media-savvy urbanites will savor every crazy morsel." —Entertainment Weekly. "Extremely funny! Wickedly entertaining!" —Bergen County Record.
