Bradley Cooper, Scott Shepherd, Ron Leibman and playwright A.R. Gurney will perform at “One Night 100 Years,” a benefit event in honor of legendary playwright Arthur Miller’s 100th birthday on Broadway.

The performers will read excerpts from Miller’s autobiography and his unpublished works as well as bits of plays including “Death of a Salesman,” “The Price” and “All My Sons.”  Gregory Mosher, who staged the 2010 Liev Schreiber- and Scarlett Johansson-starring Broadway revival of Miller’s “A View From the Bridge,” will direct the performance.  Jake Gyllenhaal, Alec Baldwin, Laurence Fishburne and Ellen Barkin will be in attendance.

“We are thrilled to have this once-in-a-lifetime group of performers and playwrights celebrate Arthur Miller’s seminal works and support the Arthur Miller Foundation’s commitment to advancing arts education in public schools,” said Cindy Tolan and Damon Cardasis, producers of “One Night 100 Years.”

Proceeds from the evening will go to the Arthur Miller Foundation for Theater and Film Education, which aims to promote increased access of quality theater education to New York City’s public school children.

The “One Night 100 Years” benefit event will be held Jan. 25 at the Lyceum Theatre — where a revival of “A View From the Bridge” is currently playing.  Tickets are available for purchase through Telecharge.
