I think one thing to consider about Shakespeare is accessibility. I agree with Mike's answer too, to consider works and movies you, yourself have seen that display similar themes. Think about 10 Things I hate about you, The Lion King, She's the Man, West Side Story. If you haven't seen these films, maybe look up what they're about and think about what plays they're exactly like. But I also want to note that Shakespeare was likable because his work was accessible. He actually was not nearly as popular as other playwrights (like Marlowe) during his time period but now he is. He gives great insight from a historical standpoint too. Think about how his work was accessible to the lower classes, how did this change plays? If he hadn't come along would someone else had done so? What do you think?
