The play itself is hilarious, and the script they've put together is even funnier. It is just as enjoyable to read as it is to watch, even after you've seen a couple of productions.

Review by

Although the script may be even more hilarious in performance than when read, it is worthwhile to read the script as well and enjoy all of the introductions and footnotes provided.

This was a real side-splitter -- I found myself laughing maniacally every couple of pages. It would be even funnier to see this performed. I plan to buy the DVD and also read the Reduced Shakespeare Company's other plays. Highly recommended!

Review by

Extremely hilarious. The script is almost every bit as funny as the show is live, and the multitude of outrageous footnotes makes this a book worth reading even for someone who has seen the play before.
