Do you mean as opposed to seeing it on stage? The difference is that when you are just reading you have to add your own imagination to the action because even when the stage directions are there, you do not know exactly how an actor might interpret that direction. Further, you will find that not hearing someone recite the lines changes the way in which we think about the dialogue and how the actors handle it.
