Goodman Theatre's "Encores" series of streaming archived past productions continues with this 2013 presentation of Shakespeare's dark "problem play," directed by Robert Falls, which sets the story of a duke going undercover to investigate the decadence and crime in his city in Times Square in the late 1970s (the same era captured by David Simon in his HBO series The Deuce). Reader critic Justin Hayford noted of the original production, "Falls and his savvy design team set the play not in an earthly Manhattan but rather in a fever dream of New York, something akin to Gotham City, where every vice and virtue is inflated to hallucinogenic scale."
