On Monday, January 25, the Arthur Miller Foundation will present "One Night 100 Years" to celebrate the legacy of Arthur Miller and support the Arthur Miller Foundation for Theater and Film Education in New York City public schools. The one-night-only Broadway benefit performance will feature readings from Miller's seminal plays and personal works.

According to The New York Times, Greta Gerwig, Jake Gyllenhaal, Peter Sarsgaard, as well as playwrights Ayad Akhtar and Katori Hall, have just signed on for the event. They join previously announced performers Alec Baldwin, Ellen Barkin, Laurence Fishburne, LaTanya Richardson Jackson, Tony Kushner and Sam Shepard.

Gregory Mosher, who helmed 2010's revival of A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE, directs.

The evening will include excerpts from Miller's autobiography and unpublished works alongside scenes from his plays DEATH OF A SALESMAN, THE PRICE and ALL MY SONS. The event will take place at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre, the home of Miller's A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE.

All proceeds from the event will support the programs of the Arthur Miller Foundation for Theater & Film Education.

The Arthur Miller Foundation believes that arts education is the right of every New York City public school student. To honor the legacy of Arthur Miller and his NYC public school education, we are committed to promoting increased access and equity to theater and film education, as an integral part of an academic curriculum. We believe that if arts education assumes its rightful place in the NYC public school system, we will foster generations of imaginative graduates, enhancing the evolving world of theater, film, and other fields of human endeavor.
