Ghost Light
LCT3 – Claire Tow Theater (NYC)
(original music and sound design)

“Ghost Light is a spectral tour of the hoary legends, superstitions and rituals that remain sacrosanct in the hearts of even the most jaded playmakers… [It] transforms the compact, contemporary Claire Tow into a labyrinthine, old-fashioned show palace…

The music throughout – always hopelessly romantic – is by Sean Hagerty.”
-Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“Sean Hagerty’s sound design is a marvel: In the “things we’re usually not privy to” department, I treasured eavesdropping on the headset-to-headset light-plot instructions audible behind glamour-girl Roxanne Kidd’s rehearsal, as well as overhearing the director giving her notes.”
– Elizabeth Zimmer, The Village Voice

The sound design included an ecclectic mashup of music by Morton Feldman, Charlie Parker, and Tchaikovsky.

New Writers at 54

Julia Meinwald and Gordon Leary write aggressively empathetic musical theatre. In the tradition of their shows Pregnancy Pact (Weston Playhouse, 2012) and The Loneliest Girl in the World (Diversionary Theatre, 2018), their three newest musicals explore unlikely (and sometimes unlikable) characters behaving badly.
