The Story: TV star Andrew Rally is at a crossroads in his career—should he accept the challenge of portraying Shakespeare’s prestigious Hamlet in New York City, or just head back to Hollywood?

Andrew’s girlfriend, his agent, a realtor-turned-medium and a super-cool pal from LA are all “spirited” into the madcap mayhem onstage.
