A battle of wills between the young TV star and the ghost of a Broadway legend

A young and successful television actor relocates to New York, where he rents a marvelous, gothic apartment. With his television career in limbo, the actor is offered the opportunity to play Hamlet onstage, but there's one problem: He hatesĀ Hamlet. His dilemma deepens with the entrance of John Barrymore's ghost, who arrives intoxicated and in full costume to the apartment that once was his. The contrast between the two actors, the towering, dissipated Barrymore whose Hamlet was the greatest of his time, and Andrew Rally, hot young television star, leads to a wildly funny duel over women, art, success, duty, television, and yes, the apartment.


Andrew Rally - Alex Ross
John Barrymore - Joe Tranchitella
Deirdre McDavy - Ally Batot
Felicia Dantine - Lorraine Barrett
Lillian Troy - Leslie Norton
Gary Lefkowitz - Paul Kerrigan
