Playwright: Arthur Miller
Cast: Patrick Stewart, Frances Conroy, Shannon Burkett, Oni Faida Lampley, Katy Selverstone, John Vennema
Character: Lyman Felt
Arthur Miller's 1991 play The Ride Down Mt. Morgan is the portrait of Lyman Felt, a self-made modern man with an appetite for life and its pleasures. He is a sensualist, who is also a socially responsible executive whose enjoyment of the opposite sex leads him to marry a second wife without divorcing the first. A near-fatal accident lands these two women at his bedside, exposing not only his double life but also the dilemmas of truthfulness and hypocrisy in the relationships between men and women.

Stewart Offers Provocative Ride (4/11/2000) From New York Daily News: Stewart boldly goes to the heart of Lyman's hunger, energy and egotism and steers the character homeward with all the assurance of Picard on the bridge of the Enterprise.
Arthur Miller's Mt. Morgan Rides to Broadway (4/7/2000) From theatre.com: Patrick Stewart is able to make the lead role of Lyman Felt the kind of "complex personality who is loveable and absolutely despicable at different times.”
