Arthur Miller (Playwright)

Arthur Miller was born in New York City in 1915 and studied at the University of Michigan, where two of his plays were produced in 1934. When he graduated in 1938 he began working with the Federal Theatre Project and wrote radio plays for CBS and the Cavalcade of America. His first Broadway production was The Man Who Had All the Luck in 1944. His plays include All My Sons (1949), The Crucible (1953), A View from the Bridge and A Memory of Mondays (1955), After the Fall (1964), The Price (1968), The Creation of the World and Other Business (1972), The American Clock (1980), The Ride Down Mt. Morgan (1991), The Last Yankee (1993) and Broken Glass (1994), among many others. The Signature Theatre Company dedicated its 1997-98 season to Mr. Miller, which included the premiere of his latest play, Mr. Peters' Connections. The 50th anniversary production of Death of a Salesman received the Tony and Drama Desk Awards for Best Revival of a Play, as did the Roundabout Theatre's production of A View from the Bridge. Mr. Miller's screenplays include The Misfits and Everybody Wins, "Playing for Time" (for television) and the recent adaptation of The Crucible (Academy Award nomination for Best Screenplay).
