Mike Nichols gave me my start. A mentor, friend, colleague. One of the best observers of life. My thoughts are with Diane & his children.

Mike Nichols - Never heard him sing opera but he had the rest of show biz conquered. Writer, performer, director extraordinaire. A sweetie.

Mike Nichols had a unique show business career from improv comedy star to film and theatre director with a Midas touch. He will be missed

Everyone who knew Mike Nichols at all had this in common. (And this is hard truth.) We felt blessed for every moment we spent with him. God.
