I Hate Hamlet

Andrew Rally is on the top of the world. He’s a big TV star, and has just moved into a ritzy apartment in Manhattan so he can start rehearsals for his New York debut as Hamlet. There’s only one problem—he hates Hamlet—and when the ghost of John Barrymore shows up to help him prepare for the role, he’s in for the ride of his life. “Unapologetically silly and…hilarious” – the New York Times.
