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 presented Bob and Ro Productions by is a scathing look at who is in, who is out and who may not even exist at all.

If you see the ridiculous side to Facebook, Twitter, Blogs and celebrity news (even though you partake of them gladly) then you will love this comment on today’s media and it’s search for the perfect non-substantive story.

Alan Price and Kris Hunt are the not-so-loveable couple in this comedy. Both previous appeared in “Passengers” with Bob and Ro Productions. Jennifer Rathner (who also directed “Passengers”) guides the two cast members with an authentic New York flair that puts a wicked edge to the one-liners and social comments that fill this comedy.

Bob and Ro Productions presents “Mr. & Mrs. Fitch” on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m., Sept. 9 through Oct. 9,. Tickets are $20 general admission, $18 seniors and $15 students, and can be arranged by calling the box office at (877) 532-7171 between noon and 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Tickets can also be purchased at the door, The Studio Theatre, 1028 R St., Sacramento.

The play contains some strong language.
