What's an actor to do when he's offered the role of a lifetime, but hates the play? A rising Hollywood star accepts the role of Hamlet at New York's Shakespeare in the Park and his agent thinks he's gone daft. Why would he trade a fluffy, big-money TV role for dusty old Shakespeare? Leave it to the ghost of actor John Barrymore, the quintessential Hamlet of the 20th century, to hilariously haunt Andy in a play that seeks to answer that question. Join in the laughter as he tries to fulfill his destiny against the "slings and arrows" in this outrageous comedy. If you DON'T like Shakespeare, see this show!
