The Goodman continues its "Encore" streaming series of past productions with Noah Haidle's multigenerational family drama, recorded during its 2013 premiere on the Owen stage under Anne Kauffman's direction. (Goodman remounted it in the larger Albert venue the following year.) Of the 2013 production, Reader critic Tony Adler wrote, "In its sweep and audacity, its somehow rueful cartoonishness, its leaps across time, and what turns out to be a clear-eyed unity, Smokefall reminds me of nothing so much as The Skin of Our Teeth, Thornton Wilder's nervy attempt to represent all of human history in the adventures of a single family."
