Arthur Laurents, Dead at 93

Monday, May 09, 2011

Arthur Laurents was a triple threat: a playwright, screenwriter, and director behind two landmark Broadway shows, West Side Story and Gypsy - as well as the film, The Way We Were. He once wrote,  "Entertainment is dessert, it needs to be balanced by the main course, theater of substance."  He was responsible for a lot of both!  He died at the age of 93.  You can hear his last interview with Leonard from 2004.
