It's so hard getting tickets to "Orpheus Descending" that Katharine Hepburn almost couldn't score. Hepburn, who has starred in two of Tennessee Williams' other plays, wanted three tickets for a recent performance. "We tried every possible source," said a spokesman for the producers. "No one had anything left." But some ingrate didn't make the 48-hour deadline to pick up his house seats, and Hepburn got her tickets.

-A FAN OF PHYLLIS DILLER came up to the funny lady at Maxim's the other night to find out the true identity of Fang, the guy she always mentioned in her monologues. "Fang never existed. I made him up," Phyllis said, giving out with that crazy laugh.The event was a party Mimi Kazon threw for Lewis Burke Frumkes and his new book, "Manhattan Cocktail" (Simon & Schuster). Among those on hand were Tom Wolfe, Erica Jong, Tony Hendra, Bruce Fierstein and Chris Cerf.
