Playbill for I HATE HAMLET


Season: 58 (2003 - 2004)

Run Date(s): May. 21, 2004 - Jun. 6, 2004

Description: by Paul Rudnick Andrew Rally seems to have it all รณ celebrity from a starring role in a hit TV series, a beautiful girlfriend, a devoted agent, the perfect New York apartment, and the chance to play Hamlet in Central Park. But there are some glitches in this paradise: the TV series has been cancelled, his girlfriend is clinging to her virginity with unyielding conviction, and he hates Hamlet. To top it all, the ghost of John Barrymore appears, dressed in high Shakespearean garb. Well-fortified by champagne, Barrymore presses Andrew to fulfill his destiny by playing Hamlet. The laughs are non-stop in this fast-paced, hilarious romp.
