Subject:        Gilligan's Island and Shakespeare

For those in the US who get cable TV:  you may wish to see or tape "The
Producer," an infamous episode of GILLIGAN'S ISLAND in which the
castaways perform a musical version of HAMLET.  Originally broadcast
Oct. 3, 1966, the episode was named by TV Guide among the 100 Greatest
TV Episodes of All Time (no doubt, a double-edged award).  The show will
air on the Nickelodeon Network (aka Nick at Nite) on 1/26 (Friday) at
1:30 AM and 4 AM, Eastern Standard Time.  Certainly, you should double
check your local listings.
