All the good plays without Romeo and Juliet,

This review is from: Shakespeare Retold  [DVD] (DVD)
I was overjoyed to note that there wasn't yet another remake of Romeo and Juliet in this collection and delighted by the modern outlook on what some people now consider to be outdated plays. These adaptations are funny, fresh and put a whole new shine on Shakespeare, especially if like me you're into romantic comedies (The Taming of the Shrew and Midsummer Nights Dream). I also liked the interpretation of Macbeth in a Chefs kitchen, a clever idea.
