I like Hamlet.

and Romeo and Juliet is good too.

Romeo O Romeo (Barf) im sorry i just dont like Romeo as mush
i ve had to read that story 3 times this school year its kind of borring now
i aloso had to retake this english class so all together ive read it 4 times
seeen the old and the new movie i think they should have thought the whole fake death thing through more that way they could have fake died together
and then they could have died and woke up then go to hawie but the first
time I read the book it was good better than Harry Poter LOL ok

I quite liked Macbeth, as well as The Tempest. There happens to be a Japanese movie version of Macbeth (as well as King Lear) by the legendary Japanese filmmaker himself, Akira Kurosawa.

I've read the english versions of Romeo and Juliette, Hamlet and MacBeth, barely remember anything of them though, was a while ago. Our teacher wanted us to play out Macbeth in "ye olde english"... that was VERY hilarious but didnt really work out in the end XD

OH GOD!!! I had really though times with Shakespeare!!! In my english class we had to do his plays like Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, and Taming of the Shrew!! and oh dear, I had to be Juliet for Romeo and Juliet! but it was kind of fun though...(worthwhile acting for!!)
