I can’t help but wonder where Arthur Miller got his inspiration for Lyman Felt, the antihero of 1991’s The Ride Down Mount Morgan. Felt is Miller’s lie man: a wealthy, two-timing, ’90s kind of guy, who leads double lives with double wives. Felt is busted at the outset, so the real drama is in the series of absurd dreams and amoral justifications that spring from his thoroughly addled brain. (It’s no accident that last year’s Broadway revival came at the tail end of the Clinton administration.) Theater J’s Artistic Director Leigh Silverman and stars Paula Gruskiewicz and Edward Gero discuss the play’s touchpoints and implications at 7 p.m. at the Corcoran Gallery of Art’s Hammer Auditorium, 500 17th St. NW. $15.
