Appreciation …

… The Man Who Went Backstage - Terry Teachout, Commentary Magazine. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Though he continues to be known for his partnership with May as one of the founders of the modern comedy movement exemplified by the four-decade run of Saturday Night Live, it was Nichols’s career as a director that made him notable. He spent nearly five decades on Broadway, staging versions of such plays as Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes, Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple, Tom Stoppard’s The Real Thing, Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull, and Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot.
