What A Piece Of Work Is Man

New York's Central Park is doing Hamlet and Hair this season?  That is many flavors of awesome.  For folks that aren't familar with the 1960's famous tribal love rock musical (and its infamous nude scene), the lyrics to several songs are lifted straight out of Shakespeare including one entire song ("What a piece of work is man...") as well as the big final number ("Eyes look your last....the rest is silence.")  Radow and Ragni were some well-read hippies.
