I Hate Hamlet
By Paul Rudnick
Directed by
Howard Allen
“fast-mouthed and funny...brightness without pretensions and sentimentality without morals.”  - Village Voice
Andrew Rally (Stephen Frankenfield), the star of a recently cancelled television series is offered every actor’s dream role—Hamlet. Part of him wants to do it. Trouble is, Andrew hates Hamlet! This dream then turns into a hilarious nightmare as the ghost of John Barrymore (Richard Ivey) returns from the dead to help Andrew fight his fears and play the role of a lifetime. The contrast between the two actors, the towering Barrymore whose Hamlet was the greatest of his time, and Rally, hot young television star leads to an insanely funny duel over women, art, success, duty, television, and, of course, the apartment . Andrew is surrounded by his dreamy, ditzy girlfriend Deirdre (Jodi Rankin), his psychic real estate broker Felicia (Kristi Loera), his slick, super-cool Hollywood producer Gary (Eric Schumacher, and his longtime agent Lillian (Maxine Gallespie) who has a deliciously wonderful secret past!
A laugh out loud comedy wrapped in
affectionate humor for the theatre!
