A good video recording of a full-stage reconstruction of Jonson's mask
"Oberon, the Fairy Prince", with Jacobean music and dances based on
period exemplars, is available from the Music Dept at my university.
It's not a play, but it might serve to represent some of Jonson's
output.  Ask me for further details if you want them.

I've had little luck finding any productions of Jonson.  The only film
releases I've come across were foreign language productions.  The only
video recording in my university library system is a production of the
Oberon masque for Prince Henry (1611) done by Case Western in 1993.  If
someone has come across any other resources, I'd like to know about them
too.

For a fun modern adaptation of Volpone, you might want to try The Honey
Pot, a 1967 Mankiewicz film starring Rex Harrison.  The Internet Movie
Database listing is found at http://us.imdb.com/Title?0061780.

Someone may have mentioned the extraordinary video recording of Jonson's
masque, "Oberon, the faery prince," jointly produced by Case Western and
Cleveland State in 1993. It's a fully staged performance with an
introduction and afterward that form a kind of documentary commentary on
the original and the modern performance.  I think we got our copy from
Case Western.
