Shakespeare's other plays are still enduringly popular. His most famous plays, which are regularly performed and studied in schools, are all tragedies: 'Hamlet', 'Macbeth', and 'Romeo and Juliet', as noted by the London review magazine Time Out.
Whilst the history plays have not remained as popular as the comedies and tragedies, it could be a little extreme to suggest that the comedies are overwhelmingly more popular than the tragedies. 'Hamlet' is arguably Shakespeare's masterpiece, and actors around the world see playing the title role as a career-defining moment. To judge the comedies as better based on their overall audience popularity as a group of plays (not as individual plays) seems a little too easy.
