Arthur Miller

Scribes and songsmiths

Miller, the last of the theatrical giants who sprung from the ’40s, had the ultimate revenge on critics and audiences when his first Broadway play, “The Man Who Had All the Luck,” was revived to much acclaim at the Roundabout in 2002. Thirty-eight years earlier, this fantasy drama survived a week in its original run. Miller often wore his leftist politics on his sleeve, and the power of his writing was none the weaker for it as evident in “All My Sons,” “Death of a Salesman,” “The Crucible,” “A View From the Bridge” and “The Price.” Outside the theater, Miller is best remembered as one of Marilyn Monroe’s husbands. Theirs was a relationship that inspired two plays: “After the Fall,” which inaugurated the theater at Lincoln Center in 1964, and “Finishing the Picture” in 2004, the year before his death.
