Recommended for: Anyone who enjoys a good laugh

This play is absolutely hilarious. It's dry, subtle, and intelligent humor appeals exactly to my tastes. It also offers some very interesting discussion about death. What is it? How does one take his own death? Is an acted death more or less convincing than a real one? All good question set against the extremely tragic story of Shakespeare's Hamlet (done in a rather comedic fashion). I never new anyone could turn a tragedy as good as Hamlet into a comedy so hilarious as Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.
