Professionally, she is a very massive figure as far as the theatre is concerned. This brings with it her career as an actress, director, and author. Although her first love was acting, she found it very difficult to get a job, and it was this that led her to found a company through which she got her friends to act while she was directing. That’s how she found herself directing.
Her works include Debbie Does Dallas, where she worked as a director for the off-Broadway play, and production of All the Fine Boys, Spanish Girl, which she directed in 2002.

Just as she is married to an amazing actor, she is also a great actress. After a very successful career, Schmidt was awarded the Princess Grace Award and the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show in 2001 for her role as a theatre director.
Apart from being an actress, this very talented woman has also been trying her hand at comedy for some time. In this context, she also became a member of a comedy group called Laughing Stock.
