I Hate Hamlet, Pawtucket

There are, however, a couple of glitches: Andrew's series has been canceled, his girlfriend is still a virgin and he hates "Hamlet". It gets crazier from there. Jenks Auditorium, Division Street, Pawtucket, RI (across from McCoy Stadium). Friday and Saturday at 8 pm, Sunday matinee at 2 pm. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for students through high school.
