The Arthur Miller Foundation has arranged the event 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.

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autobiography "Timebends," along with with speeches from his plays Death of a Salesman and All My Sons, as well as unpublished works.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

Baldwin starred in a revival of Miller’s All My Sons in East Hampton, Long Island, this past summer.
