My Life at the Theater: THE RIDE DOWN MT. MORGAN
This was one of Arthur Miller's last plays and we saw it in Ann Arbor at the Performance Network in 2000. It concerned a bigamist, whose two wives confront each other when he is injured in a skying accident. The Performance Network is a lovely venue for plays-small, intimate and the quality is excellent.
As usual, Miller has meat in his plays although this was lighter than most. This played on Broadway with Patrick Stewart, who I imagine would be excellent. It was nominated for some Tonys too.
Never regret a Miller play and we will be seeing Death in two weeks from tonight with Philip Seymour Hoffman!
