  • Trivia

    • In 2003, Michael was picked by the New Zealand Listener as Auckland's "Best Actor" for his title role of Hamlet. He was also runner-up for best director for the same production. The New Zealand Herald also lauded the production, saying, "His performance was an unalloyed pleasure because he approached the text with such intelligence and sensitivity that even the famous soliloquies sounded as if we were hearing them for the first time. Dizzyingly exciting, it was unquestionably the best reading of a Shakespeare tragedy and possibly the best local Shakespeare ever."
