Arthur Was Finally Noticed

In his 17th Huffington Post blog, Freddie showers praise on The New York Times’ Charles Isherwood for his piece on the passing of Broadway titan Arthur Laurents (pictured), the man who wrote the book — literally — for two of the greatest Broadway musicals ever: West Side Story and Gypsy.

Freddie also shares some of his reminiscences about Laurents, his good friend and Broadway colleague, who died May 5th at the age of 93.

    After reading the many accounts about Arthur written during the last month, I was more than pleased to read Freddie’s thoughtful piece in the Huffington Post as well as Isherwood’s in The Times. The unsung hero of the Broadway musical is definitely the book writer, without whom we would be sunk. And Arthur was one of the best.
