Arthur Miller died today, he was 89 years old.
I am a bit sad about this because I have a very close connection to this man. My first performance for my high school drama club was in one-act play called "Accidental Death of A Salesman." The story was essentially about Willy Loman meeting his creator, Arthur Miller. I played the role of Miller and for two months, I researched and investigated this man's life. It also helped that I was reading "Death of A Salesman" in English class. He was an interesting man. Wrote plays and married Marilyn Monroe. The theatre has lost a great one. May he rest in peace.
