Officials at The Arthur Miller Foundation are organising a star-studded birthday celebration for the acclaimed writer at New York's Lyceum Theater on 25 January (16), when actors will take to the stage to read excerpts from Miller's autobiography and his unpublished works as well as his plays such as Death of a Salesman and All My Sons.

In addition to Baldwin and Fishburne, other stars slated to take part include Ellen Barkin, LaTanya Richardson Jackson, Sam Shepard and playwright Tony Kushner.

Director Gregory Mosher, who staged the 2010 revival of Miller's A View from the Bridge, will helm the reading.

Proceeds from the benefit will go to the Arthur Miller Foundation for Theater and Film Education, which supports theatre education in New York.
