Museum planning Mike Nichols tribute

N.Y. event to include retrospective of 17 films

The Museum of Modern Art will survey the work of director Mike Nichols with a two-week retrospective of 17 films that will run April 14-May 1 at the museum's Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters in New York.

The lineup runs from Nichols' early films like "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and "The Graduate" to his recent "Charlie Wilson's War" and well as his HBO dramas "Wit" and "Angels in America."

"Mike Nichols in Conversation," an iinformal conversation with Nichols and a select group of his closest writing and acting collaborators, including Nora Ephron, Elaine May and Buck Henry, will take place April 18.

The program was organized by Rajendra Roy, the Celeste Bartos Chief Curator of Film at MoMA.
