Lithgow, Ehle topline ‘Fitch’

Play to bow at Off Broadway’s Second Stage

John Lithgow and Jennifer Ehle will topline the world preem of “Mr. and Mrs. Fitch,” the latest play by Douglas Carter Beane (“The Little Dog Laughed,” “Xanadu”).

Helmed by Scott Ellis (“Little Dog”), show begins previews Jan. 26 ahead of a Feb. 22 opening.
