Roger Daltrey, lead singer of the rock band "The Who" described studying Shakespeare in school as "like having a tooth pulled." As star of Shakespeare's shortest play, he makes the viewer's experience far more pleasurable.

Costuming, directions and, of course, music, are beautifully handled. --from website
