Subject: Re: New Hamlet on Odyssey Channel
Dr. Atchley writes: "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."
Actually, Ms Midlers rendition is likely to be a good deal more
entertaining than the dreary version offered by Odyssey. They even
missed the humor in the most obvious comic relief scenes.
