Octogenarian Arthur Miller - last year voted the World’s Greatest Living Playwright by Whatsonstage.com theatregoers in our Big Debate – is still churning them out. His latest play, Finishing the Picture, receives its world premiere this month at Chicago’s Goodman Theater. Interest is running especially high for this one as it’s reportedly based on the breakdown of his marriage with Marilyn Monroe while on the set of The Misfits, directed by John Huston. Miller wrote the screenplay for what turned out to be Monroe’s last film, before she committed suicide in 1962. Promotional material describes the plot as: “A distinguished director is about to lose his picture due to the unstable behaviour of a famously fragile movie star. She’s recognised all over the world, loved by millions, but unable to believe in herself.” The cast of Finishing the Picture includes Hollywood’s Matthew Modine, who has tipped it for a London transfer via Broadway, ideally ending up at the Old Vic as part of Kevin Spacey’s 2005/2006 season.
