You may recall that I gave myself the somewhat formidable task of reading two of Shakespeare’s plays back to back in November of last year. I thought it would be all fun and games, but it was actually really difficult. While I loved Ten Things I Hate About You, I wasn’t a huge fan of The Taming of the Shrew , which provided the inspiration. Similarly, while I loved the movie Were the World Mine, I found A Midsummer Night’s Dream kind of lacking.

I think what it comes down to is that Shakespeare’s comedies need to be acted out. They lose something when you’re just reading them.

Final rating: ★★★☆☆
