SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The founder of an influential theatre in the heart of Syracuse has died.
Syracuse Stage founder Arthur Storch passed away Tuesday. Storch acted, directed, produced and taught in his 45 year career.
In the 1970s, he founded Syracuse Stage on East Genesee Street. There, he directed 30 plays as Producing Artistic Director and supervised the production of more than 100 plays.
In 1992, Storch left the Syracuse area, but not before earning the Mayor's Achievement Award and having the Arthur Storch Theater named after him.
Storch was 87.
