Beardsley Theater


Presented by Muskegon Civic Theatre

Tickets: $20, $22

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. His problem: He hates Hamlet. His dilemma deepens with the entrance of the late, great actor 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.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday Performances are at 7:30 PM, Sunday Matinee times are at 3:00 PM
