The Arthur Miller Foundation has arranged the event, which is titled One Night, 100 Years, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Miller's birth, which was Oct. 17, 2015. It will take place on the stage of Broadway's Lyceum Theatre, where Miller's drama A View From the Bridge is currently being revived.

Newly announced for the evening, according to Deadline.com, are Cooper, Ron Leibman, Scott Shepherd and A.R. Gurney, who join the previously reported Ayad Akhtar, Alec Baldwin, Ellen Barkin, McKinley Belcher, Laurence Fishburne, Ray Fisher, Greta Gerwig, Jake Gyllenhaal, Katori Hall, LaTanya Richardson Jackson, Tony Kushner, Peter Sarsgaard and John Turturro.

The celebrities are scheduled to read excerpts from the late Miller's autobiography "Timebends," along with speeches from his plays Death of a Salesman and All My Sons, as well as unpublished works.

Produced by Cindy Tolan and Damon Cardasis, the evening will be directed by Gregory Mosher.

Proceeds will go to the Arthur Miller Foundation for Theater and Film Education, "which aims to provide mentorship, training and support for new theater teachers and increase the number of New York City public schools that have access to theater education."

In addition to A View From the Bridge, Broadway is also hosting a revival of Miller's The Crucible later this season.
