    In a Gilded World, Theirs Is but to Quip and Sigh

    Ben Brantley

    February 23, 2010: The first thing you hear is laughter, and it freezes the blood. The loud peals of offstage merriment that begin “Mr. & Mrs. Fitch,” the shrill new comedy by Douglas Carter Beane that opened on Monday night, are made by its title characters, an urbane husband and wife who are terribly, terribly amused by each other.

    Mr. & Mrs. Fitch

    David Rooney

    February 22, 2010: While there's a kernel of a good comedy idea in Douglas Carter Beane's "Mr. & Mrs. Fitch," there's not a lot of charm or conviction to back it up. Director Scott Ellis has recruited an accomplished duo in John Lithgow and Jennifer Ehle to play husband-and-wife gossip columnists, but the playwright doesn't allow them the breathing room to create characters. Instead, they're just vessels for verbiage in a show-offy play that, though not short on wit, rams its erudition down your throat with a wearing rat-tat-tat of pop-cultural and literary references.

    Mr. & Mrs. Fitch

    Matthew Murray

    February 22, 2010: If you think it’s impossible to ever have too much of a good thing, Mr. and Mrs. Fitch will rapidly disabuse you of that notion - at least with regard to epigrams. Playwright Douglas Carter Beane can churn out withering witticisms like no one’s business, but you’d never know from his goopy new outing at Second Stage that the majority of them are usually sparkling, insightful, or useful for some purpose other than serial time-killing.

    Mr. & Mrs. Fitch

    Sandy MacDonald

    February 23, 2010: The script for Douglas Carter Beane's latest comedy, Mr. & Mrs. Fitch, now making its world premiere at Second Stage under Scott Ellis' direction, consists mostly of warp-speed badinage. But the words are of so entertaining a caliber -- and so gloriously delivered by stars John Lithgow and Jennifer Ehle -- that audiences likely won't mind the play's lack of forward motion.

    Joe Dziemianowicz

    February 23, 2010: Douglas Carter Beane's new comedy about married gossip columnists, "Mr. & Mrs. Fitch," is so awkward and unfunny, it's almost scandalous.
