Mike Nichols, one of the few directors to achieve commercial and critical success in Hollywood and on Broadway, died on Wednesday. He was 83.
Mr. Nichols oversaw an impressive array of films, plays and television programs, including “The Graduate” in 1967, the Neil Simon play “The Odd Couple” in 1965 and the HBO adaptation of “Angels in America” in 2003. As recently as 2012, he won a Tony for directing a celebrated revival of Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman.”
