Life is not going well for LA TV star Andrew Rally. His popular medical drama has been cancelled, his girlfriend is clinging to her virginity, and he’s accidentally bought a medieval duplex in New York. The duplex turns out to be the former home of the renowned actor John Barrymore – the greatest Hamlet of all time. Andrew has, however, been offered the chance to play Hamlet in Central Park. The only problem is, he hates Hamlet…

“... unapologetically silly and hilarious.” New York Times

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