Probably not as well done as the Odyssey Channel, but I thought list
members would be interested to know that Bette Midler is doing a take
off on Hamlet this Wednesday night on her sitcom.

Sorry my message did not get posted in time for the Sun. eve. show.
odyssychannel.com/hamlet lists these encore performances:

Saturday, December 16 at 2 pm and Wednesday, December 27 at 7 pm.

The production has a lot of flaws (not to mention the tedium of
commercials interrupting even mid scene, taking up too much of the 4
hour time block), but I take the approach that one can always learn
something or confirm something from a different production of Hamlet.
