Derek Jacobi won an Emmy award for his performance in this episode as a burned-out Shakespearian actor named Jackson Headley. Reduced to playing a thankless role on a TV sci-fi program, Headley is "rescued" by two of his biggest fans, Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) and Niles (David Hyde Pierce). This obliges the Crane boys to underwrite Headley's "comeback" in a Seattle stage production -- a well-intentioned effort that has "disaster" written all over it. Daphne (Jane Leeves) was on pregnancy leave during filming of this episode and does not appear.
