After graduating high school, Miller worked a few odd jobs to save enough money to attend the University of Michigan. While in college, he wrote for the student paper and completed his first play, No Villain , for which he won the school's Avery Hopwood Award. He also took courses with playwright and professor Kenneth Rowe.
Inspired by Rowe's approach, Miller moved back East to begin his career as a playwright. Miller's career got off to a rocky start. His Broadway debut, The Man Who Had All the Luck , garnered a fate that was the antithesis of its title, closing after just four performances with a stack of woeful reviews.

When Kazan asked Miller to keep Monroe company while he dated another actress, Miller and Monroe struck up a friendship that turned into a romance. Miller and Monroe's high-profile marriage placed the playwright in the Hollywood spotlight.
