Miller Time

Minus a brief whirlwind of being Marilyn Monroe's spouse and not naming names to the House Un-American Activities Committee, Arthur Miller's personal life was mostly his own. Writing for 68 of his 89 years, he produced something rare and precious in American drama: serious, interesting plays about mature people.

Theatre Artists Studio showcases two of those through Sunday, September 23, in a program called Arthur Miller -- The Later Years. Elegy for a Lady depicts a man shopping for a present for his girlfriend (but it's about more than that). I Can't Remember Anything is a meeting of two people who have a dead man in common, nearing their own ends. The pair of two-charactered one-acts is directed by Barbara Acker.

Fridays, Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: Sept. 7. Continues through Sept. 23, 2012
