Rico - I can't stop thinking about Shakespeare. When I think of five more Shakespeare stories, another ten come to mind. If it's done well - if as flagamuffin says you have Beatrice sitting in your lap - you will be hooked.
When I think of a play to get you hooked, I think of specific performances
Al Pacino as Shylook in The Merchant of Venice
Kevin Spacey as Richard III - although Richard III is hard to follow.
I love your question and will think more on't...
