To be a noble, starving artist, or to pursue glamour and fame on television. That is one of the questions plaguing TV star Andrew Rally, the central character in this heartfelt comedy, as he gets immersed in one of Shakespeare's greatest masterpieces after his sitcom gets canceled. Does he abandon his painstaking work on live theater when a new pilot offer comes up? To complicate matters further, there's a ghost not just in the play within a play, but the ghost of a celebrated Shakespearian actor haunting Rally. The layers of intrigue and wit go deep here, and they've got good source material to start with. [SR]
