Robinson, you're trying to seduce me.'Other stars who worked with Nichols included Al Pacino (Angels in America), Gene Hackman and Robin Williams (The Birdcage), Harrison Ford, Melanie Griffith and Sigourney Weaver (Working Girl) and Julia Roberts (Closer).On Broadway, he won nine Tonys, for directing the plays Barefoot in the Park (1964), Luv and The Odd Couple (1965), Plaza Suite (1968), 'The Prisoner of Second Avenue (1972), The Real Thing (1984), and Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman (2012).I still think it's a work of genius.'We were poleaxed, stunned. Other honors included Oscar nominations for directing 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?', 'Silkwood' and 'Working Girl,' a best-picture nomination for producing 'The Remains of the Day,' and a lifetime-achievement award from the Directors Guild of America in 2004.'What I sort of think about is what Orson Welles told me, which is: Leave it to the other guys, the people whose whole job it is to do that, to make patterns and say what the thread is through your work and where you stand,' Nichols said in 1996.
For his stage productions, which included the Monty Python comedy Spamalot, he won no fewer than seven prestigious Tony awards. He returned to Chicago, where he began working with May in the Compass Players, a comedy troupe that later became the Second City.
Just last year he directed Daniel Craig and his wife Rachel Weisz in Harold Pinter's play Betrayal, on Broadway. May and Nichols developed their great improvisational rapport into a saucy, sophisticated stage show that took on sex, marriage, family and other subjects in a frank manner that titillated and startled audiences of the late 1950s and early '60s.
But I will always think of him primarily as a film director, one of the greatest of his generation, who gave us not only The Graduate, but also the multiple Oscar-winner Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? He had a rare talent for tapping into the spirit of the times, as with Working Girl in 1988, but there is no example finer than The Graduate, with its glorious Simon and Garfunkel soundtrack and exquisite portrayal of an awkward young man's sexual awakening. After the break with May, Nichols found his true calling as a director, his early stage work highlighted by 'Barefoot in the Park,' ''The Odd Couple,' ''Plaza Suite' and 'The Prisoner of Second Avenue,' each of which earned him Tonys.
