I Hate Hamlet by Paul Rudnick

Directed by Leslie J. Miller


Andrew Rally seems to have it all, celebrity and acclaim from his starring role in a hit television series; a rich, beautiful girlfriend; a glamorous, devoted agent; the perfect New York apartment; and a chance to play Hamlet in Central Park.  There are, however, a couple of glitches in paradise.  Andrew’s series has been canceled; his girlfriend is clinging to her virginity with unyielding conviction; and he has no desire to play Hamlet.  When Andrew’s agent visits him, she reminisces about her brief romance with John Barrymore many years ago, in Andrew’s apartment.  This prompts a séance to summon his ghost.  From the moment Barrymore returns, dressed in high Shakespearean garb, Andrew’s life is no longer his own.  Directed by Leslie J. Miller


“…unapologetically silly and at times hilarious…affectionately amusing about the theatre…”  --The New York Times


“…fast-mouthed and funny … It has the old-fashioned Broadway virtues of brightness without pretensions and sentimentality without morals.”   --The Village Voice
