In this dramatic comedy, TV actor Andrew Rally finds himself in New York City with an elegant new apartment, the lead role in a Central Park production of Hamlet, and the larger-than-life ghost of the apartment's former resident, John Barrymore, as coach for his upcoming role.
Wildly funny duels of words, swords, and wit ensue, with a dash of romance added for good measure.
Performances are Jan. 17-18, 24-26, 30-31, and Feb. 1 at Depot Theatre on White Lake Road. Call 248-575-4104 or go online, www.clarkstonvillageplayers.org/tickets.
