The Arthur Miller Foundation arranged the event to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Miller's birth, which was Oct. 17, 2015. The celebration is taking place on the stage of the Lyceum, where Miller's drama A View From the Bridge is currently being revived.
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Miller's autobiography "Timebends," along with speeches from his plays Death of a Salesman and All My Sons, as well as unpublished works. Show time is 7 PM.
Those scheduled to be part of the evening include Ayad Akhtar, Nina Arianda, Alec Baldwin, Ellen Barkin, McKinley Belcher, Bradley Cooper, Brian Dennehy, Laurence Fishburne, Ray Fisher, A.R. Gurney, Jake Gyllenhaal, Katori Hall, LaTanya Richardson Jackson, Tony Kushner, Ron Leibman, Peter Sarsgaard, Scott Shepherd and John Turturro.
All proceeds support the programs of the Arthur Miller Foundation for Theater and Film Education. In addition to A View From the Bridge, Broadway is also hosting a revival of Miller's The Crucible later this season.
