Schlossberg and Nichols weren’t friends for no reason. They shared a unique friendship based on a unique way of looking at the world. Julian Schlossberg joins Halli for at her table to talk about the documentary, Mike Nichols and Elaine May and oh, so much more on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.
Everyone knows who Mike Nichols was. From the beginning of his career as part of the satiric duo Nichols and May, he moved on to become one of the Twentieth Century’s legendary, award-winning directors of stage and screen. But Schlossberg is himself a legend. Shows produced by Schlossberg have earned many honors, including six Tony Awards, two Obie Awards, seven Drama Desk Awards and five Outer Critics Circle Awards. His work in film is equally notable. He is the founder of major film production and distribution companies, a well-known music label and for years was the host of the beloved, nationally syndicated radio program MOVIE TALK.
