In Act IV, Scene I, Portia, disguised as a Doctor of Law, outwits Shylock in his claim for the pound of flesh. The "Great Scenes" series, in which actors perform in authentic period costumes on stages patterned after Elizabethan theaters, brings to life the atmosphere and themes of the larger play.
