What Arthur Laurents Left Behind

Arthur Laurents, the Tony-winning author and director who died on May 5th, has certainly left quite the legacy. But now, that legacy is growing. A new film version of his most famous musical, Gypsy, which had been discussed in the media for being on then off then on again, now looks like it is back on and will star Barbara Streisand in her first movie musical leading role since 1983's Yentl. Mr. Laurents had also recently completed his final memoir, The Rest of the Story, as well as a new play, The Last Time We Saw Paris. Check out the full article in the New York Times.
