First, a correction. Nichols won nine Tony Awards, not six. Wow.
As for the addendum, four of those Tony Awards were for directing the following plays:
- Barefoot in the Park
- The Odd Couple
- Plaza Suite
- Prisoner of Second Avenue
What do those played have in common? They were all write by the incomparable Neil Simon.
This raises the question: Could there ever have been greater convergence of talent in the American theater than the collaborations of Neil Simon and Mike Nichols?
