Yep, reading plays is a bit boring. But, watching them is fun. In high school we had a Shakespeare club where we went to see 5 plays in Boston. They were very good and enjoyable. Although, at the time I still didn't want to read plays. I am sad that I missed Macbeth because I didn't know where the club was meting, I thought I was late and missed them. Of course, there were no cell phones back then.
