The Ride Down Mt. Morgan
by Arthur Miller
The Firehouse Theater Company at The John Hand Theater
Denver, CO
October 2004
Scenic and Lighting Design, Technical Direction
Directed by Christopher Leo

  For the small stage, Brian Miller designed a set of appropriate nature, allowing the story to easily shift
through time and space while the characters remember particular events. Millerís creative lighting
design almost takes on a persona of its own as an exclamation point to the rattled characters.
- Holly Bartges, Colorado Backstage

Director Leo makes efficient use of the space and set, and, with lighting designer Brian Miller,
facilitates the playwright's liberated chronology with seamless shifts from flashback to fast forward.
- Bob Bows, The Denver Post

Brian Miller's lighting design leaves unforgettably enhancing visuals which are indelible.
- David Marlowe, Out Front

Christopher Leo directs a fine-tuned production that carefully balances the play's naturalistic and
fantasy moments and never tips into melodrama. He and lighting designer Brian Miller gracefully
navigate the spaces between drama and comedy that the play occupies.
- Lisa Bornstein, The Rocky Mountain News
