At 90, Laurents Has Still "Got It"

At 90, Laurents Has Still "Got It"

Great story in this morning's New York Post by Michael Riedel in which the now 90 year old legend, Arthur Laurents is interviewed.

Laurents continues to amaze most recently with his current direction on City Centers Encores! production of Gypsy. While Patti LuPone is the star audiences are paying to see, they're leaving with memories of Laurents' handiwork.

Riedel quotes the maestro as saying, "At the age of 90, I'm wanted...They want me to direct the Bible next."

Amen!

Happy belated birthday to Arthur Laurents, a true living legend.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

He's too mean to die! But I think I'm pretty thankful that he directed this Gypsy.

But he's only mean 5% of the time, right?!
