Which play is your favorite, and why?

Ok, so now that we actually have members, I thought I'd pose a question to the community: Which, if any, of the plays is your favorite? For me, it's Twelfth Night, with a close second from Merchant of Venice. I love Twelfth Night because I love the escapism feel of Illyria, and I love Venice because the characters are so complex and I have a love/hate emotion associated with all of them, I guess. What about yours?

My favourite is Othello. I love the rich language, the imagery and most importantly, the character of Iago. I love the fact he plays on human weaknesses, and his 'motiveless malignancy'. I've only ever seen two decent theatrical productions of Othello, but I'm hoping to see it again next time it comes around.

Hmm...Probably The Taming of the Shrew and A Midsummer Night's Dream, I'd say.
I have to say Much Ado About Nothing. Benedick and Beatrice are the funniest characters ever!
