Whitefish Theatre Company presents "I Hate Hamlet" (Cabaret theatre)
TO BE OR... NOT???
Andrew Rally, an aspiring actor, has just relocated to New York where he has landed the role of a lifetime playing Hamlet onstage. There is just one problem: He hates Hamlet. As fate would have it, Andrew’s new Manhattan residence is the former apartment of the brilliant actor John Barrymore, whose portrayal of Hamlet was legendary. When Barrymore’s ghost appears to Andrew – intoxicated and in full Shakespearean garb – so begins a wildly funny duel between the two actors over women, art, success, duty, television, and yes, even the apartment. Will Andrew’s debut be a triumph or a tragedy? Find out in this “fast-mouthed and funny”, fencing-packed comedy with a Shakespearean twist.
