Mike Nichols has won every major entertainment award over a decades-long career that includes theater, comedy, television and film. He performed as one half of the comedy team Nichols and May, won his first Academy Award directing The Graduate, and returned to Broadway with a revival of Death of a Salesman, which picked up seven Tony nominations. Nichols warns the production may be his last.
NPR'S Neal Conan talks with Nichols about his life and career and why he says directing his latest play has been as good a time as he's ever had.
