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.
