Mr. Nichols was the recipient of Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Awards. He won more Tony Awards for Best Direction of a Play than any other individual.
Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of the Broadway League, said in a statement, “Legendary director Mike Nichols shared his distinct genius for storytelling through the worlds of stage and film. Throughout his celebrated career in many mediums that spanned decades, he was always in awe of the thrill and the miracle that is theatre. In addition to his numerous honors, including nine Tony Awards, he won over audiences with his passion for art. His notable presence in our industry will be deeply missed. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and fans.”
