I Hate Hamlet

By Paul Rudnick
June 12 to August 9, 2014
University Theatre
Paul Rudnick “knows where the laugh buttons are, and he pushes them like a virtuoso.” — Los Angeles Times, on I Hate Hamlet.
Directed by Timothy Orr

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. Written by New Yorker contributor Paul Rudnick, who “may be the funniest writer for the stage in the United States today,” says The New York Times.
