CURRENT PRODUCTION

I HATE HAMLET

17 May – 1 June 2019

Written by Paul Rudnick
Directed by Alan Burrows

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 the 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.

But when the ghost of legendary Hamlet actor John Barrymore appears in Andrew’s apartment (which once belonged to Barrymore) to show him the ropes, and a Hollywood friend of Andrew’s shows up offering him a new role in a series with a potentially large salary and fame, Andrew is forced to choose between Shakespeare, whom his girlfriend loves, or television, where he is loved by millions.
