Broadway writer and director Arthur Laurents has passed away at age 93.
Laurents wrote the two Broadway hits West Side Story and Gypsy and directed the Tony award-winning play La Cage aux Folles.
He was also known for writing the screenplays to Alfred Hitchcock‘s Rope and the classic romance, The Way We Were.
He was even involved in the new Universal version of Gypsy.
Laurents died in his sleep.
So sad. He was quite the legend.
He will be greatly missed.
