The American Repertory Theater celebrated the life of David Wheeler with a memorial service Monday, and his friends and former colleagues fondly recalled the founder of the Theatre Company of Boston. Among those slated to appear were Paul Guilfoyle, who planned to introduce a video from Wheeler’s film “The Local Stigmatic’’ (starring Guilfoyle and Al Pacino), as well as Blythe Danner, Larry Bryggman, Bill Camp, who’s appearing in the new production of “Death of a Salesman’’ on Broadway, Peter Gerety, Jeremy Geidt, and Tim Banker. Wheeler was a resident director at the ART, directing plays by Harold Pinter, David Mamet, and Sam Shepard, and working with Christopher Walken and Debra Winger, among many others.
