    So, my school did twelfth night in the fall, my friend was one of the leads. Did not have a chance to see it. He said it was very confusing, and, I quote: "I was the lead, and I still have no idea what's going on in his play."

    I loved reading Othello though.

    As for adaptations, I find the Leonardo DiCaprio movie of Romeo and Juliet a bit comic when they start talking about their swords and it zooms in on the logos on their guns, all so that they could keep the language unchanged.

    I like Macbeth, The Tempest, and The Twelfth Night. I'm not a big fan of Romeo and Juliet though. I'm also interested in looking into Othello.

    I like Romeo and Juliet but out of the plays I read so far in school(Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth) I really enjoy Macbeth. We read Hamlet in Senior Year and i feel like I would enjoy that one too.

    I've got 2 copies of the complete works and yet never gotten round to reading them all like I planned. I absolutely love Othello even though I want to slap the character (but I know what a bitch insecurity can be).

    I also like The Taming of the Shrew and Much Adobe about nothing.

    I haven't read The Tempest yet even though I am a massive fan of Return to Forbidden Planet which is loosely based on the play.

    Think I may have to dig out a copy and a book mark. Though I'm not sure whether I want to read all the sonnets as well
