Paul Rudnick’s hilarious comedy revolves around a discontented TV actor, Andrew Rally, whose hit television show has just been cancelled. Relocating from Los Angeles to New York, he rents the apartment once belonging to John Barrymore. With his television career in limbo, Andrew is offered the opportunity to play Hamlet in Central Park, but there’s one problem: he has a crippling fear of the role. Enter John Barrymore’s ghost, intoxicated and in full costume. The contrast between the two actors, the towering, dissipated Barrymore whose Hamlet was the greatest of his time and the young television star, leads to a wildly funny duel over women, art, success, duty, television, and yes, the apartment.
