Genre & Style:
The Fabulous Fitches is an American musical fable set in the screwball world of 1930â€™s. Liz, a biracial showgirl desperate for financial security, has passed herself off as a Brazilian coffee heiress in order to wed into the wealthy Fitch family â€” only to find that her ex-husband, Max, is posing as one of the Fitch family servants so that he can write a socialist exposÃ© on the excesses of the upper class. Will Liz and Max be able to keep one anotherâ€™s secret â€” especially when theyâ€™re still in love with each other? Will Lizâ€™s handsome new fiancÃ©, Lance, be able to keep certain secrets of his own now that he plans to marry? And how will all of this effect the Fitch familyâ€™s place at the pinnacles of industry, politics and society? The Fabulous Fitches is a brash musical comedy that asks how far people are willing to go to make sure they have a place at the American table. The book for The Fabulous Fitches is entirely original and is not an adaptation of any other work, film, or play.
Full production at La Jolla Playhouse (CA) in 2005.
