Paul Capsis is one of Australia’s most versatile performers. His extensive career has included theatre, live concerts, cabaret, film, and television. Paul has worked with many leading Australian theatre companies (STC, MTC, Malthouse Theatre, STCSA and Company B Belvoir) as well as in Vienna, Valletta, Hong Kong, London, Edinburgh and New York. Most recently at the top of 2021 Paul was able to perform in two original works at Sydnety Festival: The Last Season for Force Majeure; and Rapture: a Song Cycle of Desire, Ecstasy, Murder and Mayhem directed by Michael Kantor and co-starring iOTA.
Previously in 2019, Paul captivated audiences with a sell-out season of his critically acclaimed show Paul Capsis with Jethro Woodward and the Fitzroy Youth Orchestra at Sydney Festival’s Spiegeltent. This was then performed to sold-out audiences at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival. Paul’s other theatre credits include Barrie Kosky’s The Lost Echo (2006, STC) which earned him the 2007 Helpmann Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Play, Boulevard Delirium in Vienna and Australia with his Australian performance earning him the 2006 Helpmann Award for Best Contemporary Concert Performer and the 2006 Green Room award for Best Cabaret Artiste.
More recent theatre credits include The Bridge Of San Luis Rey (Brink Productions Adelaide), Lady Tabouli (Griffin Theatre), Resident Alien (45 Downstairs), Black Rider (Malthouse), Cabaret (Hayes Theatre and Athenaeum), Rumpelstiltskin (Windmill Theatre and Southbank Theatre London), The Wizard of Oz (Belvoir), Calpurnia Descending (Malthouse/STC), The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Newtheatricals) and Angela’s Kitchen (Griffin Theatre) for which he won the 2012 Helpmann Award for Best Male Actor.
