In addition to pit orchestra work, Sean has extensively performed original music for live theater utilizing live foley, violin, mandolin, banjo, and percussion. Projects include a one-man performance of A Christmas Carroll with Len Petit; two productions of Around the World in 80 Days, directed by Mark Shanahan; Twelfth Night with Milesquare Theatre; and Marathon Dancing, directed by Zishan Ugurlu.
Proper credit should go to the show’s musicians/sound-effects artists, Mike Magliocca and Sean Hagerty, who are just as important as the actors when it comes to setting the scenes or generating suspense. The duo dramatically underscores the action with guitar, ukulele, whistles, drums and various other instruments. And they provide sound effects using all sorts of tools. Scrubbing brushes mimic the sound of a chugging train, for example. And a bellows and a rattled metal sheet conjure up a sea journey and that boat-tossing typhoon.
