HAMLET BOUND & UNBOUND Plays Midtown International Theatre Festival, 7/31-8/5
Being dumped by your girlfriend and derided by your mother was bad enough for poor Robert. Tonight, he must suffer the worst indignity of them all: watching his dream role, the meloncoly dane – Hamlet – played – no – PULVERIZED by Hollywood’s most inept actor! It is more than the poor thespian can take! So Robert takes matters into his own hands… he shows the cast and crew … AND AUDIENCE how the role should be played!
This irreverent dark comedy "winks at every serious (albeit twisted) actor’s deepest fantasy, while giving due homage to the Bard’s most enigmatic character and due lampooning of the hollowness of Hollywood."
Featured in the cast are Ben Baur, J. Dolan Byrne, Alexandra Cohen Speigler, Andrew Lemonier, Cameron Moir, David Neal, Eric Percival, John Sarno, Adam Shiri, Randi Sobol, Flannery Spring-Robinson, and Kelly Zekas.
