Nichols the actor, as opposed to Nichols the director, did appear on the British stage in Wallace Shawn's The Designated Mourner in the 1990s together with Miranda Richardson and David de Keyser, with David Hare directing. It's a strange disorienting play but I liked it far more than the other judges on the Olivier Award panel who cheerfully rejected my attempts to get it on the shortlist. Even so I never quite understood why Mike Nichols took time out to appear in it in a rare return to acting. Perhaps as a favour to Wallace Shawn?
also a version by the Japanese keyboard player Tomita, which I found appallingly bland and pointless.The 10-year-old Oliver Sudden found it very exciting, though, and it could be said to have played an important role in his first 'classical' music experiences. Same goes for Tomita's Debussy.
Most of these "classical" adaptations are pretty hideous though don't you think?
My immediate mental picture is of his Faustian Police Inspector in a C4 Yorkshire gothic thing about ritual abuse and corruption, 'Our Friends In The North'
I do wish they hadn't killed off Osgood. I thought there was a fine recurring character they could bring back in future.
