(Not) "Alas, poor Yorick"

... but "Break a leg, Andre."
If only he still had one.

As a child, Andre Tchaikowsky lived through the Holocaust. In 1982, he died at age 46 from cancer.
Recently, he appeared with the Royal Shakespeare Company.

That's because, in his will, he specified that he wanted his skull used onstage during a performance of a particular scene in *Hamlet."
He got his wish, reports Simon de Bruxelles in the Times of London. But not any longer.
