Toby Schmitz on an actor's life during pandemic
Play • 38 min
Toby Schmitz is one of Australia's most accomplished thespians. He has starred in productions for Sydney Theatre Company, Belvoir and Griffin, played Hamlet, and acted on Broadway. But what happens to a stage star when the theatres go dark? In a follow-up to episode four's discussion of livestreamed theatre, Schmitz talks to Mike about performing a one-man show in an empty venue for nine cameras and a global live audience. "I don't know what a theatre company is without an actor, other than just a building that you pay Sydney rent on," Schmitz notes. "But I do know what an actor is without a theatre – they are still an actor."
